Where I come from:
I was born in Singapore, raised in Melbourne, Australia, and pursued an MBA at INSEAD. The CEO* Program stood out among others with its individually crafted journeys, strong mentorship, and leadership training opportunities. I was delighted to continue my learning journey after the MBA with such an excellent program!
How the CEO* Program supports me on this path:
On one of my assignments, I led a team to create and set up a new business portfolio line. My task: to increase Siemens’ revenue and market share through strategic retrofitting of competitor installations. This project required strategic drive and execution as well as strong collaboration with internal and external stakeholders. The most exciting experience was to present this on stage at a Business Unit Management Conference alongside the CEO.
