I absolutely adore mentoring because I know firsthand the exhilaration and challenges that come with starting and growing a business. I understand how overwhelming it can be at times, but I'm here to let you know that you're not alone. I'm committed to helping you overcome any hurdles and achieve your dreams with ease. My heart is full when I see the progress and success of those I mentor, and I can't wait to be part of your journey!
I have over a decade of experience serving as a Board Director and C-Suite Officer for B2B, B2C, and consulting companies across Asia and Europe. I have founded four companies in the tech, law, engineering, and sustainability industries, incorporating them across six different countries.
I have had the privilege of sharing my insights on global platforms such as Bloomberg TV, the World Economic Forum, and a Google event at the company's HQ in Palo Alto.
During my career, I had the honour of working for a top 5 global engineering firm, where I managed a team of 120 persons and spearheaded multi-million dollar projects. I have also led and negotiated multi-million dollar investment rounds, designed cap tables and token distribution sheets for equity and token sales, and secured several successful multi-million euro grant applications. Additionally, I have grown two startups to more than 20 people.
My expertise has made me a sought-after senior advisor to major global enterprises, including HSBC Bank, Maybank, Dutch and UK Governments, Bloomberg Philanthropies, Rockefeller Foundation, and World Bank.
I am particularly passionate about sales strategy and competitive bidding, having led sales teams across multiple industries, including tech, infrastructure, and sustainability. My efforts have resulted in securing major deals with global enterprises such as HP, Nokia, and Continental.
I am proud to have pursued my passion for business since I was 15 years old, and I remain committed to making a positive impact in the world of business.
