Since losing his sight at the tender age of twelve, Wong has never given up on life but instead has continued striving for excellence and staying motivated in pursuit of his dreams of becoming a professional motivation speaker and writer.

After passing all his important government examinations in high school and pre-university education, Wong has managed to secure a place in the country's oldest university that's University of Malaya. In 1987, visual disability did not deter him from getting his first degree in Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology & Sociology from the University of Malaya.

In his continuous efforts to develop himself further, he pursued a certificate programme in public relations at the Institute of Public Relations, Malaysia (IPRM) and in 1988 Wong emerged and won the best student award in the programme.

As the quest for knowledge was still burning, Wong made up his mind to pursue his second degree in Master of Arts majoring in Urban Anthropology and visual impairment again did not stop him from obtaining the degree with straight passes in 1992 from the University of Malaya. While pursuing his Master of Arts Degree, Wong was offered a post as a tutor at the university for two years.

With both academic and professional qualifications, Wong broke the record in getting employed by Malaysia Airlines (MAS) as a Management Trainee. Wong served MAS for fifteen years in many different departments and divisions such as Human Resources, Corporate Training, Human Potential Development Training, Ground Services Training, People & Technology Training and Management Development Training where his last held post was Management Development Controller before he took up the challenge of providing motivational speaking and motivation training on his own in 2006.

In MAS, Wong provided training and development programmes to more than 15,000 employees from the ranks of managers, controllers, executives, supervisors, officers, clerical staff, security personnel, drivers, pilots, cabin crew and management trainees.

Wong strongly believes in continuous and life-long learning. In 1994, he successfully completed a course leading to the award of a Certificate in Training & Development with distinction conducted by Institute of Personnel Development (IPD), London, UK.

To develop his skills further, in speaking and training, Wong joined the ToastMasters International (TI) and was awarded the Competent ToastMaster (CTM) and Advance ToastMaster Bronze (ATMB) awards in 2003.

As most big Malaysian companies in the corporate sector are members of the Human Resources Development Fund (HRDF), Wong has successfully acquired the status of a HRDF certified trainer in 2010 in order to enable these Malaysian companies to make claims for their training expenses conducted by Wong himself.

Having the passion, skills, knowledge and experience in training and development, Wong has also conducted programmes for other organizations such as GCH Retail (M) Sdn. Bhd., MHE Demag, Dimensi Eksklusif, Association of Accounting Technician, Bio-Young, Great Eastern, AIA, Amway, Cosway, Sunway College, Totoku, MBF Cards, INTAN, Maybank, Power Light, RTD and UKM.

Last but not least, Wong is a source of inspiration and motivation for many as he has lived his life with vision, positive thinking, self-confidence, determination, and above all, the staying power in today’s competitive market inspite of being visually challenged.
