    Why is storytelling so important to humans? Both in life and at work?! Imogen Short #35

    Storytelling is really the basis of this podcast, I wanted to bring real life stories to share with lovely humans in the world and what better way to get someone who is an expert at this! Imogen is a story ninja and award-winning writer. She co-founded Three Wise Sheep Productions to create film and television content that puts women at the front and centre of the story - which got her to attend some really cool film festivals!

    How to become an artist in Hong Kong? Jonathan Jay Lee #34

    Pursuing art as a career is tough wherever you are in the world. How about being in a city like Hong Kong where Finance is at the heart of everything, and corporates careers are the most sought after? I met Jonathan Jay Lee last year at my TEDx talk and it was incredible to hear his story, the way he sees Hong Kong and his perspective on work and education is admirable.

    How does ‘finding your passion’ really happen? - Kei Kei Chan #32

    How does ‘finding your passion’ really happen? - Kei Kei Chan #32

    It does seem like the future of work will look a lot like working from home. It now seems silly that we don’t invest in our home office! 
    This week I want to bring a real-life example on how ‘finding your passion’ really works. Kei Kei is a Certified Office Ergonomic Specialist, the Founder of EKOBOR – a company specialised in ergonomic furniture. 
    Her passion came suffering from severe back pain during her pregnancy. She studied the correlation between health and correct posture, she started to explore and studied further on ergonomics and now Kei Kei’s mission is to bring health and wellness to workplace through EKOBOR!
