This is Apelles Poh!!
CEO, Professional Investment Advisory Services
“Not only was it enjoyable, it was actually profoundly meaningful and compact with the amazing combination of loving work, living life all at the same time. That is typically Apelles Poh himself! He is indeed a living example of the facts and stories he shares. Frankly, he is one of the very few people I know who would practice what he preaches (literally)! I take pride in knowing that we both share the same vision of growing business and helping people. With that, thank you for further inspiring us to do so.”
CEO, Standard Financial Adviser Sdn Bhd
“I have thoroughly enjoyed Apelles’ presentation. His ‘localised’ humour has endeared him well with the audience. He is able to bring ‘technical’ subjects down to the level of the audience, thus giving the best value for the audience."

"Apelles Poh is a true-to-label top class Financial Adviser Practitioner in the region. In his practise master class, he showed how he has transformed his practise to a professional, practical, passionate and yet profitable financial planning business model. His call to provide solutions to best meet the needs of clients rather than pushing products is a much needed piece of advice in today's challenging financial landscape. His talks are both informative and inspiring."

"I have had the good fortune of knowing and making friends with Apelles soon after I met him after taking up the responsibility of setting up iFAST platform in India. Apelles went on to be the key speaker for our launch meeting in Bangalore. From that day onwards, I must say, there has always been a demand for Apelles to visit India, share his experiences and thereby coach and train IFAs. I strongly believe that Apelles and his team have in them a deep understanding of the interactions that take place between clients and IFAs and this helps them deliver training to IFAs that is relevant, real and result-oriented and comes with a large dosage of humour and personal life experiences. I highly recommend him."
Managing Director, iFAST Financial India Pvt. Ltd.
"Thank you for the motivational speech at the iFast Global Wealth Symposium in Krawkow, Poland. Ever since that session, I’ll always ask myself 'What could have been worse?’ and ‘What can I learn from this?’ and I realized that I can manage my emotions and handle situations much better. Thank you as this has greatly changed my perspective and helped me in my day to day management of people and situations."
Lim Wee Kiong
GM, Platform Services, iFAST Financial Pte Ltd
"The 7 Questions that Apelles shared on 'Turning Problems into Possibilities' were simple to understand, meaningful to inspire, and practical to implement. More importantly, his talk is both engaging and entertaining. He will change your perspective and he might just change your life."

Apelles packed his 23 years of experience and made the session engaging, enriching and yet simple steps for the participants to follow. He shared with gusto, how to touch people's lives with passion, discipline and positive forward thinking necessary to succeed in this industry. Although a veteran with strings of accolades, he is a humble man who displayed the whole man concept that is taught in this industry, and devotes part of his time for the poor, sick and needy. In a nutshell : A session that energizes all, especially the young ones, who are aspiring to succeed in this business by caring for his clients, so that we can render help to those who can't care for themselves.
