SU-YEN's KeyNote: 

Su-Yen’s professional experience across industries, geographies, and domains enables her to stimulate thinking on a broad range of issues, and she is frequently engaged to address topics such as:

  • The Future of Work: Reinventing individuals, organizations, and societies

  • Leadership in an Asian Century: Developing future-ready global leaders

  • Human Capital 2.0: Building a competitive advantage in the new world of work

  • Diversity at the Top: Navigating the Board and C-suite


Su-Yen is able to seamlessly navigate both Western and Asian viewpoints and values, and she is highly experienced at bringing together people from diverse backgrounds. She is equally comfortable in intimate settings and large-scale forums, and she tailors her approach for each specific audience so as to achieve the session’s objectives.



Su-Yen is a global thought leader, board director, and professional speaker who helps audiences around the world navigate the intersection of technology, strategy, and leadership. Her perspectives on the future of work, organization transformation, and leading in an Asian Century are shaped by a unique blend of experience at the board and C-level in high-tech, business, and human capital gleaned over 25 years across Asia Pacific and North America.

She has worked with some of the world’s largest, most innovative, and complex organizations including Alibaba, AT&T, Becton Dickinson, Citibank, China Mobile, DBS, ExxonMobil, Hewlett-Packard, IBM, Microsoft, SK Telecom, and the Government of Singapore.

Su-Yen is a highly-rated guest lecturer and visiting expert at programs conducted by universities including IESE Business School (Spain), INSEAD (France), IPADE Business School (Mexico), National University of Singapore, Singapore Management University, and Yale University (USA).


She currently serves on the Boards of several public, private, and not-for-profit organizations in Asia, Australia, and the United States.


Su-Yen's session was considered by most attendees as the highlight of the whole event. It was informative, engaging and very relevant to the audience. I'd highly recommend Su-Yen as a speaker on any topic related to the future of people, work and business.
