CHALLENGING THE STATUS QUO.

DIGITAL NATIVE IN SINGAPORE. EXPERIENCED IN PROGRAMMATIC, SOCIAL, INSIGHTS AND BUSINESS PLANNING

I am currently the Business Manager for Amobee SEA, reporting directly to the SVP of Asia and working with business leaders to manage and organise Business Operations. My primary responsibilities include Financial Planning and Analysis, identifying and solving for process gaps, and providing support towards strategic revenue initiatives.

I believe life is a game, and if you read and know the rulebook well, there are bound to be hacks that you can leverage upon which few others know about. :) If opportunities do not come your way, then put yourself out there and create them!

I am passionate about mentoring and coaching others, generating creative solutions to problems and discovering insights to solve business problems.

During the 2020 Singapore General Elections, I realised that the COVID-19 situation created an information gap for many as they are now no longer able to communicate with others in person (including at rallies). To that end, I put together a resource that seeks to inform with basic information about the different parties and candidates contesting this election.

In my free time, I like to make a little music and share with others about my passion: personal finance. I also dabble in a number of table top games. My friends would say I have my fingers in many different pies.

PLACES I’VE BEEN

“Life is either a daring adventure or nothing at all.” – Helen Keller

I personally believe in investing in experiences, and travelling allows just for that. Through the camera lens, I do my best to capture these experiences.

CONNECTING THE DOTS BACKWARDS

01. DIGITAL.

Upon my graduation from the Singtel Management Associate programme, I have spent more than 4 years in Amobee, a digital advertising subsidiary of Singtel. Being in my 3rd internal rotation within the company, I am extremely privileged to be able to learn from the best in the business on all things digital. I spent a year picking up skills in advertising delivery across Display and Social, and thereafter moved on to a role involved in the sale and delivery of Insights. In this role, I pitched and successfully closed Insights-as-a-Service deals collectively worth >S$5 million.

02. MARKETING.

In my first role as the Product Marketing Manager of Singtel Dash Advance, I gleaned the experience to simultaneously fine-tune the product by observing the digital behaviour of our customers, and also leverage on various types of advertising mediums to expand our reach and hit our internal KPIs. For our efforts, I was awarded the Singtel SPOT award for increasing number of approved loans by 531% and loan volume by 407%.

03. BUSINESS PLANNING.

I currently assist the SVP of Amobee SEA in managing various business operations in ensuring profit maximisation through the pursuit of strategic business initiatives, and also cost minimisation activities. Most recently, I was involved in a deal that allowed my firm to deliver on its vision of being the Leader in the age of Media Convergence.

To supplement my skills and knowledge as a Business Manager, I am currently also taking up an MBA with Quantic.
