A seasoned talent development professional, Michelle has demonstrated exceptional leadership in various industries, including property development, HR Tech, financial services, hospitality, and travel. Her remarkable expertise extends to speaking and facilitating engagements, where she notably facilitated the inaugural Obama Foundation Leaders APAC Convening, a gathering of 200 changemakers from the Asia Pacific region featuring none other than President Barack Obama and the Former First Lady, Michelle Obama.

Michelle fervently advocates for gender diversity and actively serves as an industry mentor for Lean In Malaysia. Moreover, she firmly believes in nurturing safe spaces that encourage individuals to embrace vulnerability, recognising its potential to empower them to become the best versions of themselves.
