Biography

Regarded as one of the pioneer Wedding Planners in Singapore, Kim took the plunge in 2001, leaving the employment of a Web firm to start out on her own in a field that was not widely known or even accepted at that time. Her entrepreneurial spirit was encouraged by her family, who led by example by her family members who started singlehandedly in businesses as well. Starting a Wedding Planning firm was tough at that time, but through patience, perseverance and a never-say-die attitude, Kim led Wedding Concierge to be a well-known brand in the Wedding Industry. She is always personally involved in every wedding and her calm disposition is always praised by couples and service providers.

Prior to starting on her own, Kim has been actively involved in the event planning business, project managing and executing launches for brands such as Nokia, Pentax, Galderma, including overseeing the media management, logistics planning and execution of Khoo Swee Chiow’s 10-day Guinness record breaking Scuba Submergence Challenge. She is well versed in the interactive media platforms and was part of the Singapore team that piloted ground breaking IT projects which were launched on international platforms such as Internet World 2001 and Asia Television Forum 2000. Through her experiences in small and medium start-ups, she wishes to coach and equip the next generation of artisans to be reliable and productive, and to inspire them to know that pursuing a career of their dreams can actually be possible.

As a result of her experience, Kim has been approached on numerous occasions to contribute to columns and special features in local and regional publications like The Business Times, The Straits Times, Signature Weddings, Her World Brides, Blissful Brides, Style Weddings and has also been approached by Mediacorp to assist in the production of Channel 8’s 30-part drama serial, Love Concierge which starred Nancy Sit, Jacelyn Tay, Ann Kok, Fiona Xie, Thomas Ong, and other popular artistes. Kim has also been nominated for the Spirit of Enterprise 2006 Awards and her inspiration and passion for entrepreneurship can be read in SOE’s publication “I am the boss!”
