Anna is the storyteller, co-founder and director of WYSH - a consultancy based in Singapore and Washington, D.C. that provides coaching, consulting and corporate workshops using techniques from applied theatre such as storytelling and improvisation comedy.

South Asia & Oceania

Prior to being a storyteller and improv artist, Anna worked in financial services in Singapore and the Philippines. She worked in Financial Markets Sales, Business Management, Strategy, Business Planning and Development, and Relationship Management.

Anna holds an MBA from INSEAD where she received the Asia Enterprise Scholarship award and a certification on Social Impact Storytelling from Georgetown University. Since leaving financial services, she has performed improv onstage with Magnet Theatre and Upright Citizen’s Brigade in New York City and has gone onstage as a storyteller for the Moth in New York City and Story District in Washington, D.C..

She created WYSH when she noticed in this rapidly changing environment, storytelling and improvisation apply to both work and everyday life. Both skills teach the individuals on how to: be present, let go, be agile, create, communicate, and collaborate.

Anna currently works with social enterprises and accelerators through consultations, coaching and workshops on storytelling and improv techniques where they work to improve their soft skills on teamwork, creativity, agility, and communication skills in a fun experiential learning environment.
