Inspire

As a human capital professional with careers in multinational corporations, Government-Linked Companies, entrepreneur-led and consultancy services; I have strengthened my passion and built my capabilities in shaping organizational cultures of innovation, driving business transformation to create value; higher growth, stability and sustainability through people.

I am constantly evolving and place my focus on the agility to continuously learn and grow. I believe this is a perquisite for future work and especially from the perspective of how technology will demand future people capability and how organizations function to innovate for profitability.

I am an advocate for diversity, inclusion and total well-being at the workplace. My inspiration is that leaders demonstrate physiological literacy to understand the dynamics on organizational health. I believe in my next career chapter with AIMS to “Find & Grow Your Leaders”; promoting gender-diverse leadership, total organizational well-being, and integrating climate resilience competencies in hiring practices will be a sustainable way forward.

Earlier on I took on the challenge for the Longest Horseback Cross Country. I made 274.3km to the tip of Borneo. The participating riders and I who completed the challenge made into the Malaysia Guinness Book of Record. I had no horse-riding experience prior and trained for three months. I am a believer that all is possible when one wills it.

Having lived in Malaysia, Australia the United States my references are deeply embedded with social economic multicultural origins, and I aspire to put my gamut of life and work experiences in enhancing delivery and seamless experiences, providing solutions, nurturing diversity & inclusivity, and being a trusted partner to client organizations.
