What does your current role involve? Internal and external communications, public relations, media relations, copywriting marketing and strategic marketing.
How has your career developed since leaving Nottingham Trent? I landed in a job as Public Relations Executive at Sunway. It laid a solid foundation for me to be headhunted by another company and thereafter I moved on to join Hong Leong Assurance.
How has your experience at Nottingham Trent - the learning environment, academic and social life - shaped or helped you in your career? I gained various life and interpersonal skills through living abroad independently which translated into my current work. I am able to work both independently and in teams effectively, which I attribute much of to the culturally diverse learning environment at Nottingham Trent University.
How friendly and supportive an environment did you find Nottingham Trent? Ten out of ten! The support from the lecturers and the International Office was amazing! I still keep in touch with most of my lecturers - they are my mentors for life!
What has been the highlight of your career or personal achievements to date? The work I've produced. I've written many speeches and messages for some top management personnel.
What are your plans for the future? Continue honing my skills in the field of public relations and corporate communications.
