I am a former “9-9-6” a week corporate bee with over two decades of experience in growth strategies, brand partnerships, and team leadership with Alibaba Group, Singtel Group, and MobileOne (M1).
In my recent capacity as Regional Vice President at Lazada, I provide solutions-based consultancy to accelerate business growth for global brands including Samsung, Dyson, Philips, Nike, Adidas, and Under Armour. In this leadership role, I support clients to embrace a growth mindset by consistently redefining the boundaries of their business performance.
My professional journey has been a deliberate pursuit of knowledge and discovery. The different Marketing roles and the diverse team cultures I have experienced across Southeast Asia, have sustained and truly inspired my innate curiosity for learning and challenging my comfort zone throughout my career.
I firmly believe in building positive connections. Beyond my strengths in creative problem-solving and strategic analysis, I have been recognized for being customer-centric and committed to fostering collaborative, trusting relationships. Clients and colleagues have commended my genuine interest in empowering them to succeed as a business partner. Similarly, I look forward to partnering with you in your journey of discovery to achieve your goals.
I thrive on positivity and optimism, choosing to extract the sweetness from every lemon life throws at me.
This enthusiasm has motivated me to repivot my corporate career to embark on a coaching journey. I founded
‘Positive Minds’, (https://www.facebook.com/positiveminds.me/) as a vehicle to serve and an expression of my life purpose. As your coach, I am committed to guiding you in gaining better self-awareness, challenging limiting self-beliefs, and cultivating positivity to unlock your full potential as you navigate life’s challenges with resilience and a growth mindset.
Part of my learning journey as a coach is being a student of ‘Happiness’ (subjective well-being). I am currently pursuing a Graduate Diploma in Applied Positive Psychology where I look forward to incorporating evidence-based positive psychology principles and mindfulness interventions to help my clients find joy in life.
Central to my pursuit of happiness as I approach the big ’50’ (read: uncle-hood) is optimizing my mental, physical & psychological well-being through an active and well-balanced lifestyle. My regular cocktail of physical activities includes mid-distance runs, spin cycling, yoga, hot Pilates, and most recently, Zumba (yes, I’ve got some boogie in me too!). Music is my constant companion outside of my endorphin fixes. I enjoy anything from Bill Evans to Metallica, Teresa Teng to Taylor Swift. I am a fan of physical music (read: old school) and a collector of vinyl records and CDs (read: hoarder according to my wife).
– Honest, empathetic, non-judgemental & empowering.
– Fostering a purposeful partnership of co-creation, where YOU take centre stage.
– Making your journey of self-discovery an enjoyable and fulfilling experience
