Thanks for landing on my courses. I am a humble hustler who loves to spread knowledge driven by intrinsic motivation! Being a life long learner, I strive to learn and help others to learn new craft and skills.
With a career spanning over 17 years in higher education, private and more recently in public sector - I gathered experience in a wide range of areas eg. Business Development, Strategy, Research and Evaluation. As an academic, I have widely taught courses on Innovation, Entrepreneurship, Creativity, Marketing and the list goes on (except Rocket Science). When I get bored with my 9 to 5 job, I like to impart my knowledge and inspire people through various media. I took a humble step with my own consultancy business HotCubator which now serves both national and international clients in various projects in Educational Curriculum development, Evaluation and skill development.
I hope to create value through developing useful courses and insightful knowledge. So every course that you buy, all the money is donated to charitable causes (education for under privileged, women empowerment) in South-east Asian countries.
