Everlyn Kuek

With FCTG for over ten years, Everlyn is currently a Village Leader for FCM Asia.

Mention equal opportunity in the workplace and Everlyn will react passionately to this value. Even though she started in FCTG as an ATL, her goal was to become a novice trainer and VL, roles which would allow her to interact with other TLs, enable her to provide a listening ear, and provide advice and solutions to their challenges. Everlyn loves her current role as it teaches her to think out-of-the-box and be adaptable through the different customer challenges and requests that are encountered daily. Her job also allows her to be able to pave the way for females in the workplace, giving them a voice and confidence to excel in what they can do, and take them from zero to hero

WHY ARE YOU PASSIONATE ABOUT CHAMPIONING THIS CAUSE?

To be the voice of the people - Through daily interaction with different departments, this allows me to be empathic and understand the restrictions/challenges/frustration/thoughts of my team and our people.

WHAT DO YOU THINK IS THE BIGGEST CHALLENGE FOR FEMALE LEADERS? WHY?

Stereotypes. Many always assume women to be the one to help out at home when kids are sick or when there are celebrations in the household.

Themselves! They think too much and have too many considerations - women tends to think that they need to tick all boxes before they are capable of doing the job well.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE QUOTE FOR INSPIRING WOMEN?

‘Surround yourself only with people who are going to lift you higher’
– OPRAH

The quotes speak for itself. I have always believed that if I surround myself with people who are embody all things positive, positive things will happen!
