E4 | Her Path to the Boardroom | Jenifer Thien

 

Upon returning home to Malaysia at the end of 2019, Jenifer Thien decided to pursue a board career on top of her advisory work at Grit and Pace, an outfit she established to support organisations in their pursuit of growth. But for someone who had been abroad for 16 years, finding board opportunities here in Malaysia was not as easy. In March 2020, Jenifer joined ICDM as a member and has recently begun her tenure as an independent director in a public-listed board in Malaysia.

In this episode of the Sounding Board podcast, Jenifer Thien discusses her journey to securing her first board appointment and her thoughts on being a leader in today’s landscape.
