Hi there! Let me introduce myself.

With a combined total of close to 9 years working experience in the management consulting, engineering, manufacturing, and technology sector, I have gained extensive experience on strategic management, operations management, business process improvement, lean methodology, business analysis, and sales operation, to name a few. Graduated with an MBA from Lancaster University and Sunway University in July 2018, there has been a conscious effort on my part in applying the knowledge and experience gained throughout my MBA journey. An example would be application of Value Stream Mapping (VSM) on one of the many engagements as a consultant with KPMG.
