TJ's passion to empower MSMEs stemmed from his days with the Singapore Chemical Industry Council (SCIC), where he was the secretariat and managed the industry’s Responsible Care programme, being actively involved in helping SMEs adopt and implement. Subsequently as General Manager of Absotech, a local chemical distribution company, his engagement deepened as he chaired the SCIC’s SME Committee and represented SME interests at both the SCIC Responsible Care Committee and the National Chemical Management & GHS Taskforce. 

 

TJ’s scope of engagement expanded when he took on the role as Director of the Asia Pacific MSME Trade Coalition (AMTC). With the mission to engage and empower the micro, small and medium sized enterprises in the region, he managed strategic development and organisation transformation, whilst concurrently strengthening relationships with AMTC stakeholders.

 

With a career spanning more than 20 years, TJ brings to the table a wide range of skill sets from strategic planning, organisational transformation, business development to corporate administration, events management and public speaking. He enjoys engaging audiences of all sizes and has had the opportunity to share with both the public and private sectors at regional and international platforms such as the WTO Public Forum.

 

He firmly believes that every small business has the ability to impact and empower lives as they grow and flourish. Hence Curated Connectors was set up with the vision of Empowering Lives through Connecting Businesses.

the University of Manchester, United Kingdom.
