Top Team will cease operations on June 1st 2017.
The decision may come as a surprise given that Top Team succeeded in becoming the most cited among similar companies in Vietnam. It is also the first and only one to be nominated for an international award in Singapore. Even in this month, one of the 3 best colleges of Malaysia, for which we designed and organized an unmatched educational and experiential learning program in Vietnam, recommended Top Team to become part of the Duke of Edinburgh award, with the support of the inspector of Malaysia’s Ministry of Education who accompanied the group.
From the onset, we faced enormous challenges in retaining qualified staff. The reason being that the best talents want to work in Ho Chi Minh city, Vietnam’s vibrant economic hub, not in the exceptionally tranquil and beautiful coastal city where Top Team is headquartered. The same is true for young ambitious expatriate professionals.
For these reasons, we haven’t been able to hire sufficient talent to meet our exceptionally high standards and that could have driven our ambitious expansion plans (reaching well beyond Vietnam’s borders). In short, when goals and means cannot be reconciled the strategic decision is to let it go and move on.
Finally, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to our dedicated staff, outstanding training specialists, coaches and free-lancers, supportive suppliers and service providers across Vietnam and amazing clients from Asian countries, Australia and Europe.
My best wishes to all of you!
