"We have received a positive response for the concept from across the World and I hope that the awards will create a cascading effect for truth tellers.


This initiative aims to encourage writers of all kinds, be it book authors and bloggers who write honestly and from there to transform these truth-inspired written works into real-world ventures. I chose Singapore to be the launchpad as it is one of the 'meeting points' for the world.


The next phase I envision for Singapore is to be the world beacon for Truth. But more than that, to bring the 'Golden Door Awards' concept to every major city from the UK to India, and beyond."
