Broadsword grows with Asia Pacific Lead
During the pandemic, Jase accumulated a wealth of experience in virtual and hybrid events, successfully helping APAC clients deliver numerous events in different scales and formats across Hong Kong, China, Taiwan and other Asian cities. Before that, Jase managed multiple international IPO roadshows events for SOE in China for over ten years. At Broadsword, she is determined to offer flexible and high-level services to ensure clients’ events are delivered with great success.
We asked Jase ten questions about her experience and interests, to get to know her a little better.
What led you to a career in the events industry?
My work in IPO roadshows led me to events and client servicing.
What was your first job?
I formed a small publishing company with friends and published one maths exam mock test book. It was not very successful but we had fun!
What’s a mistake you made early on in your career and what did you learn from it?
There was a time I was taking on too much and pushing people around me the same way – but I found this causes more problems than it solves. Working as a team and understanding needs are far more important in accomplishing a task efficiently.
What’s a work-related accomplishment that you’re really proud of?
Being one of the first Chinese speaking IPO Roadshow Project Managers in the industry and completing multiple major IPO international roadshows at the time.
What’s the best place you’ve travelled to?
I’ve got two! Cebu and Switzerland.
If you could only snap your fingers and become an expert in something, what would it be?
I would be a multi-language specialist.
What’s the weirdest food you’ve ever eaten?
Deep fried insects in Thailand!
When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?
What advice would give to your youngest self?
Travel more and get to know the world better.
What’s the best advice you were ever given? Who was it from?
Trust yourself and be confident — from a friend in the same industry recently.
