Hi I'm Amit.
I'm a Malaysian-born Sikh who has lived in Melbourne for the first 6 years of my life, followed by a 25 year stint in the United Kingdom. As of 2017, I'm heading back to Malaysia! I'm heading home.
Even though I've spent my entire educational life, my teens and thus far my working life in London, I've never felt it to be my home. I'm quite nomadic, but I think I'd find Malaysia to be the home I've always been looking for.
I'm the founder of Subtera Technology, an iOS Application Development organisation in Malaysia and Subtera Consultants, a Personal Productivity coaching institution in Singapore.
After being cheated out of the first questionnaire-based application for the iPad when it was released (a story for another time), I took it upon myself to learn iOS Development. A year of waking up at 5am took it's tool on me, but with 6 months' work after that, I had my first application in the App Store. A chance presented itself after being featured in multiple places to make an application for my friend's charity. A year later and I had two applications under my name. This is where the dream started to have my own organisation, creating and empowering small to medium businesses to have their own applications.
I'm currently learning Swift and am in the middle of a new food-based application.
Productivity was the other factor that hit me during the time of my application-development learning. I had to juggle a full-time role as a senior consultant for a Japanese organisation. In fact, I'm still juggling that today. So I had to be on top of my work; I had to prioritise and I found my way with that. It was so effective, that I went onto train 4 executives in different walks of life (and therefore with different responsibilities) with personalised productivity plan. This has become the basis of my work in Singapore.
