Biography

I have an intense interest in the unfolding trends of technology and harnessing such technologies to achieve strategic sustainability across businesses globally. Specifically, the technologies and their applications that I find most interesting include renewable energy technologies, data analytics and artificial intelligence.

 

I am driven in developing my leadership and communication skills, coupled with learning experiences that extend beyond the classroom. This encompasses a combination of international learning experiences such as at the University of Oxford, and a broad range of professional experiences across multiple industries. This includes industries such as professional services, telecommunications, fast moving consumer goods (FMCG) and insurance, across functions such as accounting, finance, IT and data analytics. Outside of work and studies, my personal hobbies include reading and martial arts.

Interests & Passions

  • Strategic sustainability
  • Social entrepreneurship
  • Leadership and development
  • Data Analytics
  • Corporate strategy

"My greatest achievement is the work I accomplished with my team in Fiji, developing a social enterprise to address the health and environmental concerns of open fire cooking."
