Naffi, Co-Founder & Director of Tagit, started Tagit Mobile to bring innovative applications to traditional consumer businesses such as banking, travel and entertainment. He is a serial entrepreneur with over forty years of experience in building new brick and mortar and IT businesses and has mentored budding entrepreneurs at INSEAD business school, where he was Entrepreneur-in-Residence for ten years.
After more than 15 years in finance, in France and Asia (Singapore, Hong Kong, Taipei), I specialized in coaching executives and their team.
I started my career as a legal manager at Sanofi before joining BNP Paribas as an investment banker. In 2010, I decided to settle in Singapore, where I pursued activities in M&A, and I sponsored in several startups in the field of health and technologies (Efficentres, Mindfi).
Since 2017, with my business experience and excellent academic training (INSEAD, Churchill College), I have dedicated myself to supporting leaders who wish to develop a systemic approach to their role as decision-makers and their organization. Alongside being a business partner to my clients, I aim at building up a reflective partnership to support them in becoming more self-aware and impactful team leaders or managers.
I am keen to help others in their personal growth and journey. I believe if one has access to guidance and objective perspectives from various people, they can achieve their goals and so much more. I have worked in financial services throughout my career, a predominantly male- dominated environment as an Asian female. I have a seven year old boy.
I'm from a working class background in Manchester and left the UK and a large family when I finished university and move to Australia. From a work perspective I spent most of my time working in and our technology and outsourcing in lots of different roles. These ranged from a business analyst, project manager, consultant, pre-sales consultant, partner director (in the US) and then responsible for market expansion into ASEAN. This role was via a startup that was launch approximately 5 years ago. Most of my experience is around contact centre technology/AI/ML and I'm not so much a technologist as CX person focused on technology. I'm now living in Singapore and have been here for two and a half years. I love the food, the melting pot of cultures and the food (did I mention the food?)
