My Family

PCG_1234

Here’s my lovely family at my wife’s PhD graduation ceremony, Kings College, London in 2015.

(from left to right):

Adam is in his second year of his Sports Therapy degree at Teeside University.

Dr Sylvia Goh (!) is a Speech & Language Therapist specialising in neurological disorders, assistive communication aids and clinical decision-making. She’s authored a number of books including the RCSLT Clinical Guidelines. She runs her own private practice called Relational Communication, and is a visiting university lecturer.

Bethany is an aspiring neuro scientist! Currently in her first ‘A’ Level year.

Nathan is currently finishing his Masters degree  in History at UCL.

I am really privileged to work for Tearfund, a wonderful Christian NGO as Head of Global HR. My area of interest includes Organisation Development, employee engagement, systemic practice, employment law, learning and recruitment both in a UK and international setting. I love helping Christian organisations achieve their goals by helping people navigate complexity and change.

I’ve been a Personnel Practitioner most of my life. Having obtained a degree in Geography, I went on to do a Post-graduate Diploma in Personnel Management, an MA in HRM, and Post-graduate certificates in Systemic Management, and the Psychology of Organisation Development. I’m currently working towards a professional doctorate in Systemic Practice at the University of Bedfordshire. Doing this part time is tough but enjoyable.

A chartered fellow of the Chartered Institute of Personnel Development, my career to-date has spanned three sectors, namely, the public sector (Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Singapore), the private sector (Thistle Hotels, British Airways), and the charity sector (CMS and Tearfund).

My guilty pleasures include playing the guitar, photography and Arsenal FC.

Here’s our two dogs Callie and Bailey:

  1. Hi Patrick, Seasons Greetings remember Mok Weng Leong your Secondary 2 Classmate? Great time jamming we had at your Pasir Panjang house (Heng Mui Keng Terrace) then. Great to see and hear you on YouTube. Cheers my good old friend!

    1. Hi Mok

      So good to hear from you. I’ve tried several times over the years to find you on social media but couldn’t spot you. I try to meet up with old mates whenever I’m back in Singapore. Most recently I met with Mr Chia, Mr Lee and Crosby. Are you on FB now?

      Yes, good old days. I remember also playing on the stairs at your flat. How’s Peter?

      55 is a far cry from 14!!! Are you still jamming away? Hope life is treating you well. I guess you’ll have grown up children too? We’re at the stage where they’re about to fly the nest. I’m really not ready for that.

      I’m preparing to go the Arsenal game tonight when your comments came through on my phone. You made my day. If we win tonight, even better!🙂

      Hope you have a lovely Christmas and please do stay in touch.

  2. Hi Patrick,

    So sorry I didn’t check your blog and hence did not reply earlier. I can’t express how nice it is to have caught up with you again. My journey through music would not have been so beautiful if not for a guy like you. We happened to be classmates in 1974, Secondary 2D in Commonwealth Secondary School together with (late Peter Koh) sorry he passed away of a heart attack in January 2013. I remember Mr. Chia the NPCC teacher and an avid fitness freak. He’s a great and exemplary role model. Crosby, yes I remember cos he lives nearby my place during our school days and he’s also my elder brother church mate. Patrick my local cell phone is 65-97900760 , my email address ritzprop.mok@gmail.com. I truly look forward to connect with you again my dear old friend. I m not on Facebook nor LinkedIn. Cheers my Good Old Friend, listening to your singing instantly bring me back to the good old days I cherished. Be in touch.
