Your life as a teacher begins the day you realize that you are always a learner - Robert John Meehan

About me

With a passion for business transformation, people, and behavioural change management, I focused on business performance improvement, operating model optimisation and digital transformation throughout my career in industry. I have also been a facilitator, knowledge sharer, coach, and mentor, and am super enthusiastic about developing young talent, especially women in business and management. I currently live my dream as a lecturer - to share what I have learnt and experienced. I also enjoy the craftsmanship of writing in Information Systems related research areas such as digital transformation, knowledge management, enterprise architecture, Information Technology outsourcing and project management!
