A creative, yet disciplined and driven Marketing and Communications executive with over 8+ years in-house communications experience in high-growth and established companies with a focus on market entry, team building and brand strategy. Technology and design have been the two constants in my professional life spanning 15+ years. A strong sense of justice, coupled with an eclectic background in fashion, business development, operations, technology and communications helps me connect with people across different industry and cultures and foster positive working relationships. This has been the underlying success mantra during my stints in various APAC markets, including Hong Kong, Indonesia, Malaysia, Korea and Middle East and North Africa. I am a generalist that is up for any challenge that results in adding business value. The 4 core values I live by are: strong sense of justice, integrity, humility and inclusion. I am passionate about furthering diversity because I believe that makes businesses more future proof. Diversity of gender is a given, but also business perspectives and cultures fascinate me. At LinkedIn, I work towards building the LinkedIn brand in APAC, through a sustained media and stakeholder engagement program across print, television and the online space. I also conduct an ongoing LinkedIn familiarization program for journalists and oversee LinkedIn India’s Twitter program, which is aimed at educating consumers.
