Marketing Consultant, Media Strategist, Author
Trained as a chemist, Stephen Ng proves that with a little drive and determination, a scientist equipped with an analytical mind and a burst of creative energy can go a long way in other fields. Among his strengths include media consultancy, writing, publishing and organising CSR events.
Ng’s portfolio, which spans over three decades of his working life from 1987 covers a wide area of disciplines. Having earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Chemistry from Monash University, Australia, he had worked first as a chemist, later became the Laboratory Manager, before going into Sales Management with a local chemical company in Petaling Jaya. Ng also played a major role in developing the ISO 9002 system at Union Carbide's factory in Senawang, Negeri Sembilan.
As a man with many interests, self-initiated and a multi-tasker, his great passion for marketing has driven him to complete a postgraduate diploma with the Chartered Institute of Marketing through a correspondence course. Having developed a strong passion and creativity for marketing, he was headhunted thereafter to join Monash University campus in Malaysia as its Senior Marketing Manager.
In his employment with Monash University Malaysia, he had created a lot of hype in both the print and electronic media around the Monash Malaysia name, bridging the gap of what was already well-known about Monash Australia and its the newly-established Malaysia campus in Bandar Sunway. The rest is history, when he later joined two other education institutions in his capacity as Director of Corporate Communications. He was also the man behind the media hype prior to the public listing of Salcon Engineering.
Before 2003, Ng’s knowledge about the financial sector was almost nil; two years later, he completed five modules of CFP TM (Certified Financial Planning) and was picked as the best student to receive the Award of Excellence for Tax Planning.
In his early part of his career, Ng was a part time photo-journalist with a number of news agencies -- The Malay Mail, The New Straits Times, The Star, Bernama, Malaysian Business, FRV Magazine, Green Prospects Asia, ASEAN Entrepreneurs, Malaysiakini, and the list goes on. He has published a number of books since 1998.
