During this session Datuk Torstein briefed all the things that has achieved or not after seven years with SEB.
This includes increasing the number of sales of SEB energy up to 120 percent, while the company's revenue jumped more than 70 percent and pre-tax profit increase of 75 percent.
At the same time, energy theft rate was reduced more than half the power distribution network to occur efficiently and smoothly.

During a final Q & A session, one of questions to Datuk Torstein is regarding his opinion about small dam in Sarawak, his answer is simple -
'Very Good Idea...'
'....if we all willing to pay two Ringgit Malaysia per kilowatt power'...
To his opinion small dam is not creating affordable energy or equivalent job opportunities and mini hydros only providing powers approximately 9 to 10months per year so it's better to have bigger dam that can provide more and affordable.
When asked by the media about his future after SEB. He replied that he probably do some advisory jobs next year but first, he wanted to go back home (Oslo, Norway) and spend time with his family and friends. He is also about to have his third grandchildren very soon.
He told media that first thing that comes in his mind when asked about what he love most surely is Sarawak Laksa and of course working with SEB. He also love the openness and the friendliness that people in Sarawak gave to him all these years, through thick and thin.
Lastly he wish that SEB will keep on growing and continued success under the lead of new CEO in November.
