Hi there! Let me introduce myself.

The future is uncertain and disruption threatens every industry. My career interest is to help organisations understand the need for change and undertake efforts to help steer it well into the future.

I use research and evaluation tools to understand and predict, while adopting social innovation models to mitigate and address the changes both now and in the horizon. I'm also an advocate and proponent for the social enterprise model, as a powerful change agent for a better society overall.

I've had the experience of leading an innovation unit at Petrosains, a world renown science centre and subsidiary of Petronas. Among its successes, the team has developed its own model of Design Thinking, enabled operational efficiency through key pilots, and have collaborated with global partners like UNICEF, Monash University, Lancaster University, and Digi, member of the Telenor Group on various projects.

I have also led Social Innovation initiatives under the National Innovation Agency, with key projects include the launch of Malaysia's first Social Public-Private Partnership Model and a social innovation seed fund for NGOs.

I've conducted workshops and given talks regionally on research and evaluation in the museum space, social innovation, and STEM education. I'm also on a few Industry Advisory Boards for universities, a listed mentor for incubator and accelerator programmes under the Malaysian Global Innovation and Creativity Centre, and am often on judging or review panels for events themed around STEM and innovation.
