My Story

Everyone asks me what drives me as an entrepreneur, coach and media leader? For as long as I can remember, I have been fascinated by media production and storytelling. As a young girl growing up in Hong Kong, I would record songs and stories in cassette tapes and went on to work at radio stations, even trained as a DJ and a presenter.

My competitive spirit, with a passion for helming initiatives in digital content and making alliances happen led me to work at some of the biggest Fortune 500 media and technology companies - FOX (formerly STAR TV), Dolby Laboratories and Twitter (Greater China content & media lead). It was immensely gratifying to lead the first ever “Voice of China” TV show using Dolby broadcast technology, a big win. It remains one my most memorable career highlights, navigating multiple cultural nuances and a diverse set of partners to activate this cultural zeitgeist for Chinese audiences. All of this while actually carrying a big baby bump; 7 months pregnant with my son!

In my professional journey of the past two decades, I witnessed the change in the media industry from linear technology to going digital, with the rise of emerging Asia. Working with prominent international media, credible names in the silicon valley including Twitter and Times Internet, as well as family owned media businesses, I have helped these organizations scale their networks and grow their presence in the region.

After creating my own startups across interactive television, digital art sales, even a food social network EATIZEN.net, I moved into the creatively satisfying, non-stop frenzy of content business and intensely challenging corporate role at Twitter. All of these experiences helped build my risk-taking appetite and added to my skills in media training and executive coaching.

My passion to help leaders grow and succeed led me on this journey to become an executive coach in 2019. I am accredited by the International Coaching Federation besides, and a certified Facilitator for Cultural Intelligence by the Cultural Intelligence Center. Among my most prominent clients are tech start-up founders, international tech corporations, consumer brands,
public organizations and creative entrepreneurs.


Currently, I'm based in my home city Hong Kong, dedicating my energy to bringing TCP Growth to the next stage in the APAC region. Together with multicultural coaching partners, we are spreading the power of communications to bring people across cultures together - Connect Across Cultures.

Partnerships

My partnership approach A.G.I.L.E. blends the expertise I have gained in business communications, organizational dynamics, and the psychology of human performance to guide key media alliances, international content partnerships and inter-regional engagement in Asia and globally across verticals around media and communications.

Thought Leadership 

As speaker and media influencer, my goal is to motivate, inspire and develop positive behaviours using communications tools and techniques. I prefer a blend of western perspectives with a holistic approach integrating Asian cultures and sensibility to deliver results. All of this combined with my candid insights and authentic storytelling have been my formula for success.

More About Me

Here’s what I think - being an entrepreneur and a mom are two of the hardest jobs in the world. And I am learning valuable lessons on both these journeys. 

I am a mom of two happy boys, with a very supportive husband. As a family, we love to explore nature. When I’m not juggling meetings and calls, I enjoy swimming, movies, food and a quiet stroll by the sea to recharge my energy and slow down on a regular basis.
