At the moment

I have been delivering management training for managers in Novara Media and Reprieve in our Management Development Programme. During the programme, we’ll help people understand their own management styles in order to help them gain confidence in managing themselves and their teams.

I have also been working with individuals from Trussell Trust and UNICEF UK helping them to identify and deal with ‘time thieves’. I particularly enjoyed our conversations on prioritising long and short-term goals. Managing Multiple Priorities provides tools and tips on how to deal with a heavy workload and procrastination. I am using these tools daily and finding them helpful in situations when everything feels like a priority.

In the next few weeks, I’ll be delivering project management training for UN Environment Programme World Conservation Monitoring Centre and Oxfam. I’m looking forward to sharing our experiences on projects and working with them on their project management approach. The practical tools and techniques from our Project Management programme helps make projects feel less daunting and ensure successful outcomes. If that is something you are interested in, I recommend joining us on our next Project Management public programme in May.

Before =mc

Prior to working in =mc, I was in various management roles in the Singapore Navy and managed small teams of 3 to larger teams of 25, in areas such as training, communications and operations. My work in those areas provided me with a great foundation in managing people, delivering training and motivating teams.

Back in Singapore, I volunteered with Action for AIDS, where I administered anonymous HIV tests and provided sexual health advice, to support their mission of ending HIV transmission in Singapore. These days, you can find me in a British Heart Foundation shop, manning the till or preparing donated items to raise funds for life saving research. I joined =mc because their mission of ‘Learning that leads to greater social good’ strongly resonates with me.

Outside of volunteering, I am also an Oxford Imp, an improv comedy troupe that entertains audience with unscripted comedy and games. As an improviser, I strive to create a safe and collaborative space for everyone to have fun and thrive in. As a learning and development consultant, I will bring that same energy to create a fun, learning environment for all participants. See you on our next programme!
