Inspirations for innovation

Collaboration with diversity

"Given the diversity from different cultures, location, and expertise of each team ambassador, we can collaborate and create a sustainable future for our city. We share, ideate and embrace diversity of our capabilities and meet with our team ambassadors from their areas of expertise to talk about working together in the journey of building our skill sets to shape our future cities," said Maiphee.
