I started my career in an international public relations consultancy called Edelman PR. While holding a day job, I was also a part-time TV and radio newsreader. After leaving the consultancy, I worked at IBM handling their PR from a country role to a regional role.
During that period, I dabbled as a lecturer for the Institute of Advertising Communications & Training (IACT) plus other wonderful things like story telling for children and several marketing projects.
As chance would have it, I was asked to join an unknown radio station in 2009. My first requirement was its distance from my home. Let’s say it is close and the first reason I joined. It is amazing what decisions can determine our future.
Fast forward a few years, I now host a show called Enterprise on BFM89.9, the first dedicated business radio station in Malaysia (BFM Radio). Targetted at entrepreneurs, SMEs and managers, we cover everything from new businesses, what you need to know to a run a business, personal development to technology.
I have conducted over 5000 interviews with interesting big names like Julian Assange, Stephen Covey, Nick Vjucic, Jarno Trulli, Nadia Comaneci to Robert Kiyosaki. To this day I still wake up every morning getting a buzz from everyone I speak to because I know there’s so much I don’t know and need to learn.
