KPMG Saves Employee’s Bowling Career

Not kidding! This will be one of the weirdest headlines you'll read today: “Without KPMG’s support, I could possibly have ended my bowling career.”

Jasmine Yeong-Nathan won the AMF World Cup in 2008, was Singapore's Sportswoman of the Year in 2009, has been that country's woman's national bowling champion twice ('09 and '14).  

But like all athletes, there was a down swing; however, Jasmine managed to pull through and she says it wouldn't have been possible without the House of Klynveld: 

In 2009, after my World Cup (in 2008), I was having a very quiet time on the lanes because I was making some major changes to my bowling. I was still on the national team but I wasn’t winning anything major until last year, when I won the nationals and, then, this year, at the Asian Tenpin Bowling Championships, we did well and won silver as a team. That was just a solid six years of support for me.
 
I think, without their support, I could possibly have ended my bowling career. It would have been hard to continue bowling.

Is there anything this firm can't do?
