As John Maxwell so eloquently say, “The pessimist complains about the wind. The optimist expects it to change. The leader adjusts the sails.”, this phrase in leadership rings true for a natural-born leader like George Qiu. With a challenging but rewarding career of over 20 years in Service Supply Chain, GE Gas Power Asia, he is no stranger to the life of discipline, hard work and dedication to perfecting his job responsibilities – even sacrificing at the expense of himself. Leaders are few and far between, with many opting for the easy way out. To become a leader, it takes the combined strength of willpower, character and strong support system. George Qiu is a leader with all three, backed by his family that has never failed to understand his devotion to his work. We spoke to George Qiu to find out what guides him as a leader in GE for over 20 years.
The Philippines is a country which has enjoyed rapid economic development in recent years. Annual GDP growth has hovered around 7% in the last decade, underlined by a landscape which has seen the value of national GDP double in the decade between 2007 and 2017. This impressive economic growth necessitates an equally important need for electricity. Energy demand in the Philippines has mirrored GDP growth in recent years, expanding by approximately 7% annually. Meeting the needs of the future will require both enhanced electricity generation capacity, and improved sustainability of supply. That demand is providing the catalyst for a fascinating energy transition, and one which GE is proud to play a part in.
