Finding and working with people who are very different from you.
It is very easy to surround yourself with people who think the same as you. Growth happens when you can listen to different voices from your own.
I’m at the phase in my life to really think about what can I do for other women. When I was younger, this is what other women did for me and I like to pay things forward.
I would like gender and ethnicity equality to be equal in my life time!
My family has always been supportive of my work. I once tried to raise external funds for my business and I received quite a lot of negative comments. Such as, how quickly will the return be? What are your plans to scale up within 1 year?
No you can’t. Life is not just about money and happiness is not determined by money.
The alien would have to understand that in our society money is an important factor of social cohesion.
Seeing my team take charge.
I am always keen to learn from others and to share my own experiences. The conference will be a vibrant meeting place for women to recharge themselves.
