Please introduce yourself
I am a writer and strategic entrepreneur. I am passionate about trying to figure out the nexus of situations, such as how climate change and finance meet. I see problems as maps, and I love to picture bottlenecks like traffic jams, and try to figure out how to get around them – and how to spark solutions among as many people as possible. Trying to save time is one of my obsessions, often futile!
When did you speak for WiFA and on what topic?
My good friend, Benedicte Nolens, invited me to speak at WiFA for the first time in 2017, on the mainstreaming of ESG activities among financial entities, and again in 2018. Both talks focused on cutting-edge trends in Asia.
Tell us one thing that is important for #CreatingTheWorkforceOfTheFuture
A critical item for the workforce of the future is interdisciplinary thinking, and a focus on decision-making. People will need to see challenges from multiple perspectives, and then act.
What advice would you give to women who want to lead?
Increasingly, to lead should mean to decide and to help teams come to conclusions, as compared to gathering information.

When I travel, sometimes I like to wear only stripes!
