Caught in between tight schedules and multiple tasks, we tend to focus too much on what to do and forget about how to be. Join this workshop to help us map out what we want to do and how we want to be. It is best suited for participants who seek to gain some clarity about their lives.

Registration for the event will begin at 2:00 pm.

Many of us get caught up in the treadmill of constantly DOING things — meeting work deadlines, lifestyle and family demands,
etc. More often than not, we forget how to BE. How can we be better at living? How can we be more content? How can we be
happier? How can we be more at peace? This workshop will helps us map out what we do and how we want to be, with a few
tools to help you navigate the space in between. It is best suited for participants who seek to gain some clarity about their lives.

Participants are required to bring many differently-coloured pens/crayons for this interactive workshop.


Lee Jia-Ping is the Programme Director of Partnerships for Think City Sdn Bhd, a community-based urban rejuvenation organisation and a subsidiary of Khazanah Nasional Berhad (the strategic investment fund of the Malaysian Government). Think City’s main goal is to create more liveable and resilient cities through partnerships with government bodies, private partners and civil society. Jia-Ping heads the Partnerships Team and is responsible for developing and building local and international partnerships. Prior to this, she was the pioneer member of the Kuala Lumpur (“KL”) office heading the Communications as well as the KL teams, and was responsible for driving the rejuvenation of the historic core of KL.

Lee Jia-Ping is an Honorary Council Member of Badan Warisan Malaysia (The Heritage of Malaysia Trust) and has been working on heritage conservation and preservation as a volunteer since 2001. After George Town in Penang was awarded the UNESCO World Heritage Site status in 2008, she was part of the core strategic group led by Khazanah to create a programme to revitalise George Town and ensure it retained its vibrancy as a city and a destination brand. One of the key strategic drivers of the programme led to the formation of Think City Sdn Bhd.

As part of the Rotary Club of Gombak, she was a committee member and later the Organising Chair for the club’s Community Care Carnival (2011–2013) which raised over RM500,000 for the urban poor living in Kota Damansara council flats. She was the recipient of two bursaries from the British Council for Arts in Business projects and has been awarded a Commonwealth Grant in 2000 for her collaborative work with a United Kingdom (“UK”) textile designer on Malaysian Songket. She has been a pioneer of the Arts for Health Movement in KL and has developed and implemented several programmes in KL for Selayang, KL and Kajang Hospitals. In 2006, she conceptualised and developed an educational maze for Protect and Save the Children (“PS the Children”), a local non-governmental organisation (“NGO”), which won a Silver Kancil and was nominated for a Yellow Pencil at the prestigious D&AD Award 2007 in the UK. Lee Jia-Ping regularly speaks on branding and empowerment at Chief Executive Officers (“CEO”) and NGO meetings and, until 2016, coached small- and medium-sized enterprises (“SMEs”) on BFM 89.9: The Business Radio Station. For her commitment to her industry as well as to the community, she was awarded The Malaysian Women’s Weekly Great Women of Our Time 2013 in the Finance and Commerce category.

Lee Jia-Ping holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from the University of Melbourne, Australia majoring in Political Science
(International Relations).
