My professional background
Founder/CEO, Marketing/Communications Director, Brand/Creative Head - 28 years on the go building companies, strategizing marketing plans, creating ad campaigns and brand building. I have worked with talented visionaries, fantastic clients and great leaders. I have experience working in multi-cultural environments and interacting with clients in New York (7 years), Toronto (4 years), Dubai (5 years) and Singapore (9 years) and won a few business awards along the way.
As a mentor I want to give back to the community and students all the knowledge and skills I have gathered in the past 28 years. If you are an Entrepreneur or SME owner facing a crisis, challenge or just need to navigate your way in the right direction let’s talk.
Presently I mentor students in RMIT University - Australia and Vietnam, Magic (https://central.mymagic.my/mentor/private/selectSlot/9874?programId=34) MentorCruise ( https://mentorcruise.com/mentor/EricJude ) and Futurelab.
When I’m not working, I dabble in photography and the arts. Practicing Vipassana meditation continues to help me tackle difficult situations with a calm mind. I also volunteer my time as a tandem cyclist for the blind, which has been incredibly rewarding.
