Member / Simone Heng
Simone Heng is a professional keynote speaker, sought-after international MC and former broadcaster. Throughout her one and a half decade-long career in the entertainment industry, Simone’s job has always been to build memorable connections with audiences on stage, on air, online and one-to-one.
Living globally from the age of 17, Simone was on air for 5 years in the Middle East with Virgin Radio’s award-winning Virgin Radio Dubai (2009-2014), and with Australia’s competitive Southern Cross Austereo (2014-2015), returning to Singapore, where she was born, with Class 95FM (2015-2019).
Simone studied in Switzerland, speaks German fluently, and has a communications degree from Curtin University of Technology in Western Australia. But it is her global adventures which have allowed her to become a true student of Human Connection. This is the topic she now brings to organisations with practical connection techniques that transform how people work, live and meet other people in a world where disconnection is rapidly growing.
She has spoken at Google (2018), has hosted at the United Nations (2017), and in 2019 was awarded Asia’s Top Youth Marketeer 2019 at the Asia Youth Women Netizen Marketing Excellence Awards.
As we enter the age of artificial intelligence, mastering the art of Human Connection will become the divisive skill of the future.
Simone's keynote on the Importance of Human Connection shares how to:
-Connect with people profoundly and memorably.
-Bridge the gap between cultures without the use of language.
-Break through with even the most difficult to connect with individuals.
-Identify the authenticity of the connection.
