A blend of 3 main mindsets: Tech, Business & People, I complement technological advancements with capabilities to build products that people want and business cases that corporates can support.

I am a trusted growth leader and entrepreneur with more than 15 years of experience in change management in Asia, and 20 years of progressive experience in finance, channel management, and strategic planning across various industries in Australia. I have worked alongside major global brands such as Unilever, Philips, Holcim, HSBC, Bloomberg and Merrill Lynch.

I am a firm believer in harnessing the power of culture and technological innovation for stronger and more sustainable business growth. This passion has led to my involvement with several ventures advocating sustainable entrepreneurship and social innovation.

My latest undertaking is called Level3, a workspace collaboration between Padang & Co, an innovation catalyst that I co-founded, and Unilever Foundry. At Level3, startups and entrepreneurs are connected to real business opportunities via Unilever brands. Padang & Co helps both private and government organizations increase their innovative capacity using Open Innovation platforms and tools like hackathons, online challenges and bootcamps; and have run 40 hackathons and 12 online challenges for MNcs, Singapore companies and government agencies such as AIA, Konica Minolta, Keppel Corporation , Singtel, GovTech, Ministry of Defence and Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore in the past five years.

With many years exposure to complex international operations and culturally-diverse teams I have perfected my ability to bridge cultural differences through credibility, empathy and effective communication.

As the President at the Australian Chamber of Commerce in Singapore (AustCham), I am also actively involved in Australian/Singapore business opportunities in Singapore and across the region.
