    #GotAPhing? EP35: Corporate Career Lessons - Business Risk Management

    Hi - Welcome to Got A Phing? In today's podcast, I talk about the last corporate position which was the Senior Director and Head of Governance at Standard Chartered Bank.



    So, this was a very interesting role for me because I joined this business team right after a personal sabbatical. This business team that I joined was actually the team I supported in my Financial Crime Compliance role previously and they were my business partners at that time. 



    Again, I want to emphasise that it is so important to focus on networking and keeping in touch with people who understand your value and they would very gladly want to work with you. I got the offer to rejoin the bank to lead the risk management and business governance of a $1.5B portfolio.



    It was exciting times especially for someone like me who has an accounting background and started in audit, sometimes it's difficult to envision yourself to move outside of the 2nd or 3rd line of defence just because it's not that natural to do so.  I'm here to tell you that it's totally possible if you focus on the core skillset.



    So, this is also a very challenging role for me as I had to step up from a regional role with multi-functional reach into a global role managing 43 markets.

    #GotAPhing? EP33: Corporate Career Lessons - Internal Controls Auditor

    #GotAPhing? EP33: Corporate Career Lessons - Internal Controls Auditor

    Hi - Welcome to Got A Phing? In today's podcast, I want to talk about the time I was an internal audit and an internal controls specialist with one of the biggest global payments company in the world - VISA.



    So, this was one of the really fun roles I've done up till that point in time because I got the opportunity to travel all around the world with VISA. I've been to many parts of Asia visiting the big cities - the different people, cultures and backgrounds. 



    If you guys have been following me for some time now, I'm sure you know that I love travel. This role with VISA really enabled me to fulfil my personal and professional aspirations - that was extremely exciting at that time!



    I took up the role in internal audit... After many years in external audit, I realised that I did not like numbers so it was a natural progression for me to move into an area that I felt that I was a lot stronger in - internal controls assessment. 



    The opportunity with VISA came at the right time as I was pretty much scrolling LinkedIn, saw the job, applied and got it after 5 rounds of interviews!

    #GotAPhing? EP32: Corporate Career Lessons - Regulatory Auditor

    #GotAPhing? EP32: Corporate Career Lessons - Regulatory Auditor

    Hi - Welcome to Got A Phing? In today's podcast, I want to talk about the time I spent as a regulatory auditor with Ernst & Young Singapore. 



    EY is one of the biggest global accounting firms in the world and I joined the financial services department in 2010 - long time ago. 



    So, when I joined I was initially doing external audit for some time. Later on, I was given the opportunity to try out compliance reviews on behalf of the regulators.



    In case you are not very familiar with financial services, this is basically the industry that includes banks, insurance companies, fund managers etc- basically the highly regulated entities. 



    As part of my role doing regulatory reviews, I had to understand the regulatory policy, perform qualitative reviews, analyse control gaps that would lead to non compliance.

    #GotAPhing? EP31: Corporate Career Lessons - External Auditor

    Hi - Welcome to Got A Phing? In today's podcast, I talk about my corporate experience as an external auditor, which was the first 'real job' I took with a very small audit firm back in Penang, Malaysia.



    I was an external auditor for quite a number of years - probably close to 5 years - with two separate organisations. One was the small company I just mentioned, while the other one was Ernst & Young Singapore with the financial services department.



    If you guys are not in the finance line, I'll share a little bit more with you...



    If you have taken an accountancy degree or something similar, a lot of times you will need to complete your practical experience. In most instances, people would join an audit firm to make sure they get that experience and get used to the fast-paced and busyness of it all.



    So, that was what I did too.

    #GotAPhing? EP30: My Journey Up The Corporate Ladder - A Story

    Hi - Welcome to Got A Phing? In today's podcast, I want to share about my journey up the corporate career ladder for the past 10 years in the corporate world. 



    Recently I've been getting some comments such as "Oh, you look too young to have actually done anything in the corporate world at all" and "You look too young to have any real experience leading people and teams".



    How wrong they are. 



    In fact, I've had a lot of experience - very intense experiences at that. 



    So, I thought I'd share it via this podcast today in a quick and nicely summed up story of my corporate career, the roles that I've taken, some of the key points around that and how I transitioned.
