Board of Directors


Anne worked in the technology sector for over 25 years before starting up a social enterprise in 2011, Leadwomen Sdn Bhd, focused on increasing women representation in leadership and board positions across corporate Malaysia. In the course of this work, she hopes that these women leaders will help to pave the way and become role models who will open mindsets of young girls to believe they can achieve all things. She is currently the lead facilitator for the people skills modules (Boardroom Dynamics, Board Presence/Communication and Board Simulation) that are delivered on the Malaysian Women Directors Programme, a government initiative to increase women representation on boards of Malaysian PLCs. She is also the Programme lead for the workshop design and development for the ICAEW Women in Leadership MY (started in 2014). Her specialisation is in bringing the best of the woman leader forward and leading with values. Prior to LeadWomen, she was the CEO of SAP Malaysia and Cisco Malaysia. She was successful at building high-performance executive teams and leading technology and service organisations with P&L responsibility.

She also enjoys gardening, music and baking. Anne has just started taking lessons to play the piano, as she believes it is never too late to learn. Anne is not only a woman of many talents but is also a mother to an 18-year-old daughter and is the owner of 9 dogs!
