Tell us about your experience as a Combined Studies student at Heriot-Watt.
I studied Electronic Engineering and History of Science at Heriot-Watt. Following a sabbatical year as President of the Students’ Association, I was advised to consider technical writing as a career. This proved to be good advice and I spent nine years involved in technical writing and marketing at Sun Microsystems in Grenoble, France. After branching out to do an MBA in Asia, I am now based in Singapore. I work as a Sales Enablement Consultant to the IT industry, and clients include Google, Cisco and HP. I still keep up my Heriot-Watt connection: there’s a thriving alumni group here in Singapore and the Principal jets in every year for the Heriot-Watt graduation ceremony.
