I help career professionals build adaptability by being creative with how they learn, communicate value and operate in their zone of genius.


About me

My curiosity has led me to many paths in life - a corporate career, a career development podcast  and a couple of previous side hustles to name a few.

When I tell my colleagues at work about my side-hustles, I'm intrigued when I get asked if I'd ever switch to doing this full-time. Whilst this may be the dream for some people, I look at all these different avenues as a way to build my talent stack. 

My career is an opportunity to learn about new ways of working, collaborate with a diverse team and solve challenges on a wide scale. Side hustles and passion projects are my playground to be creative, where I get to learn on my own term, experiment without the red tape, and connect with people I wouldn't normally get to meet.  Every skill I level up on enables me to launch the next idea much more quickly than the last.


Learning new things both at work and outside inspires me to look at things differently, reframe challenges into opportunities and constantly reinvent, never accepting status quo.  This is what makes me feel intrinsically fulfilled in whatever I do.

My goal is to inspire you to follow your curiosity, have fun learning and shape a fulfilling career. 


I have a multi-disciplinary skillset in delivery and transformation, with over 17 years of experience in financial services. 


My latest career is in Data, using modern learning to transform our workforce into multi-skilled teams working on target state architecture.

"Yishan has really helped me with my career transition, achieving more in the last few years than all the combined years prior. Her style can be summed up in the quote from Edward Hess:

Innovators are people who can unlock the cognitive and emotional chains that hem most of us into the familiar. Unlocking those chains liberates us to let go of the comfortable and familiar and journey into the land of innovation. Making that journey requires humility and personal courage." - Meryl
