My foray into the working world began at the age of 15. After graduation, I joined Singapore Airlines, where I handled complex customer incidents and crisis management. I later joined the Public Service Division, under the Prime Minister’s Office, to deliver tailored HR solutions to 6 government agencies and develop talent management policies to grow future public service leaders in the economic sector. I then made the leap to be part of the founding team at INTELLLEX, a legal tech startup that helps legal teams manage their knowledge intelligently with AI technology. My role is to ensure we have the right people, resources and positioning to succeed. I relish meeting and gaining new perspectives from people with different backgrounds, and one of my current joys is meditation practice with a global community.

The last four years have been particularly rewarding for me. I began teaching in a polytechnic in Singapore not long after retirement from corporate life in 2015. The specific areas I have taught are Communications in a Global Workplace, Marketing and Organizational Behavior. I have also found time for volunteer work in Singapore and other countries such as Cambodia, Indonesia and Ethopia.

Thirty-six years in corporate roles provided me many opportunities to experience and appreciate nuances in the concepts and theories of business and people management that are taught in academia. Consequently, I make every effort to illustrate and “bring to life” these concepts to those I teach, in order to make practical sense of them.

In addition, I had the benefit of working in 5 different locations across Asia and North America, 12 years of which were outside of Singapore. The experience of interacting and working with people from many cultures and managing global teams were invaluable.

Admittedly, I continue to have a passion for business endeavors and for sharing knowledge on business management I have acquired. My journey over several business cycles and especially during challenging periods, such as the Asian financial crisis in 1997 and the 2008 Global financial crisis, left indelible lessons for me.

I will be happy to provide a more detailed CV if required.

Founder, Self-starter, Doer - I believe these three words aptly describe who I am. With an assorted background spanning banking, finance, HR and tech, I am the ultimate generalist. Leveraging on my corporate and entrepreneurial experience, I believe I can mentor and add value to early-stage entrepreneurs, SME business owners or social enterprises to help them solidify their business and operations model and achieve their goals. As a believer in purpose ahead of business, I would also like to help people understand their "why" and how they can attract others who believe in the same ideology. Having mentored aspiring entrepreneurs for a brief period of time, I have realised that I enjoy it and would like to do more of it.
