The saying “jack of all trades” is usually followed up with “master of none”. I prefer to say I am a “master of some”. With over 20 years’ experience in CRM, the majority focused on customer experience technologies, I have been working with companies across the globe to put their customers at the center of their businesses.
Being a story teller at heart, I have learnt to be multi-lingual, proficient in geek, sales, marketing, service, implementation and, most importantly, “plain and simple”.
Leonard is an established technical sales professional with close to 20 years of experience in the IT security industry based in Singapore.

He has worked with small/medium enterprises and MNCs clients in Asia Pacific.
Leonard is currently leading a team of 20+ presales across the APAC region in the cybersecurity space.
I'm currently working at Salesforce as a Principal Solution Engineer in the Enterprise team. My role involves me working closely with a handful of clients as a strategic advisor. My goal is to enable, educate, challenge and inspire their way of thinking using Design Thinking, Workshops and other methods to really understand their business drivers & experience they want to create for their customers.
The majority of my career has been focused on analytics specifically AI, data science and predictive analytics. This provides me with a unique lens when it comes to continuous transformation as data holds the key to everything!
