You like to think of yourself as a professional matchmaker. You excel at quickly understanding individual and organizational needs and interests and making sure that the right people are talking to each other. If multi-tasking was an Olympic sport, you’d be a gold medal contender. Given a flip chart, some post-it notes, and a room full of passionate people – you can pretty easily come up with and implement a plan that everyone is excited to be part of. You thrive in a start-up environment. You can pivot on a dime, and often can’t sleep until a problem is addressed. You love the idea that your organizational and networking skills could contribute to a better livelihood for entrepreneurs throughout East and Southeast Asia.
