"The biggest value often comes from the question-and-answer exchange that follows, as my stories inevitably spark curiosity and engagement with audiences."
Over the last decade, I’ve been privileged to be invited to deliver over 100 keynote addresses and speeches, and moderate panels at various conferences, corporate events, and industry seminars – from Kuala Lumpur, Singapore, Hong Kong, Manila, and Shanghai, to Abu Dhabi, Sydney, London, Paris, Copenhagen, New York, and many more.
My speaking engagement clients include Prudential, Standard Chartered, Maybank, Alliance Bank, UOB, Dell, HP, Google, Samsung, Huawei, Shell, Petronas, Cebu Pacific, Ernst & Young, HULT Business School, Singapore Institute of Management, the Institute of Directors, Denmark, and others.
The messages I share on disruptive innovation and challenging the status quo, building brands in emerging markets, shaping an innovative organizational culture and attacker’s mindset, developing leaders and scaling businesses – all come from my direct personal experiences, both the good and the bad. It’s this first-hand authenticity that connects with audiences. I share practical examples of management practices I have used, which can be applied to any organization, big or small, private or public sector – with the right leadership mindset and drive. The biggest value often comes from the question-and-answer exchange that follows, as my stories inevitably spark curiosity and engagement with audiences.
Even more impactful than keynote speeches are my custom-designed masterclass workshops that engage participants with interactive leadership and team-building exercises, actionable frameworks and advice, practical notes, and memorable stories. These are based on my experience as a CEO, organizing many leadership retreats and management workshops to engage and inspire my teams, to rally around a common vision and goals, and raise our professional game.
Themes for my Leadership Uplift masterclass workshops include:
Strategic and Innovative Leadership - venture building and successful digital transformation
Agile Leadership - building a culture of speed and agility
Empathetic Leadership - building trust and having courageous conversations
Resilient Leadership - handling stress and pressure to achieve peak performance
