A multi-cultural global citizen, Shirley LIU holds British and Taiwanese dual citizenships, grew up in Thailand, is UK- and US- educated and a Parisienne at heart. Such unique perspective underlines her 13-year international marketing career with FT500 companies L'Oréal and Estée Lauder in the United Kingdom, France and the Asia-Pacific region.
In addition to her corporate role, Shirley devotes significant personal time as a millennials mentor and psychology advocate, empowering young professionals to contemplate the alignment of their personal calling, dreams and career ambitions early in life.
In each authentic dialogue, Shirley turns a figurative mirror to her audience and poses soul-stirring questions that reconnects individuals with their noblest self and deepest motivations: Finding the Purpose for Being, at work and in life.
Shirley's personal quote : "To reach one’s dreams, one has to wake up first. If you choose unconsciously, you evolve unconsciously. If you choose consciously, you evolve consciously. “Until you make the unconscious conscious, it will direct your life and you will call it fate.”
Carl Jung.

I am the Learning Director in an Edtech startup, 360Learning (Digital Learning Platform). I believe that education and learning can be the answer to many issues of our world.

Manger Citoyen aims to gather citizens in order to create a new alimentary democracy. The power is in our plates !
