Tell us about your current role with MTA. What are your primary responsibilities?

APAC team

As a global experience manager, my main duty is to assist with processing all event-related data and maintain good communication between our team and the attendees to ensure we provide a smooth and extraordinary meeting experience for our customers.

What did you do before joining MTA? Before joining MTA, I was an assistant event planning manager at a hotel in Hong Kong.

What’s the best part of your job?

There are many different situations or challenges at each event, no matter the size or where the meeting is located. When finding solutions for each question that arises at an event, I enjoy gaining new knowledge; I also like the sense of achievement when completing a successful event.

You currently live in Hong Kong? Tell us what are your favorite sights to see in Hong Kong.

Hong Kong is such a beautiful place, and I will have to say our Victoria Harbour is the best sight to visit, preferably to take the ferry at night and enjoy the harbour views with a light breeze from the bay.

What’s been your favorite event destination as an event planning professional?

Being part of the APAC team, my favorite event destination is South Korea.

What’s been your most memorable event to date and why?

My most memorable event to date was an event series in Beijing. It was the largest event for me so far. Our team is so incredible to the point that we turned a very complicated event into a fun, interesting, and successful one. AND I bumped into Chow Yun Fat (a very famous Hong Kong actor) at our meeting hotel as well!

Do you have a few great travel tips that you could share? Always travel with an international adapter with USB ports, and I recently decided to get a travel kettle as well…my teammates know I always drink hot water!

What makes Miller Tanner Associates stand out as a meeting planning company?

The professionalism and attentiveness that each MTA employee provides are what leads our customers to plan any event without hesitation. That’s the most valuable aspect of our company.

What do you enjoy most about the annual MTA Workshop?

Being in a virtual company you don’t get to see your teammate so often. Whenever there is a chance for us to meet in person, everyone treasures the time of being together LIVE so much. The workshop brings us all together to review our values and to help us to support each other in a much stronger and more passionate way.

What do you do for fun? I am a dog lover! Going out with my dogs is always fun for me.
