Personal pitch

A commitment to helping others is one of my core values. I prioritise connecting with people in both my career and personal life, so a job where I'm in constant contact with a variety of individuals is energising for me. I'm happy in any position where I get to interact with others and provide a service to them. With more than 10 years of experience in a number of diverse roles—Multimedia Design, Brand Communications, Project Management, Marketing & Sales—I have managed accounts and projects within the following industries: F&B (Cold Stone Creamery, T Bun, Naza Group F&B Division, and so much more), Telecommunications (DiGi, Buzz me & M8 by Enabling Asia, FRiENDi, YES, U Mobile), Healthcare / Pharmaceutical (Abbott), Hardware & Software (Dell), Insurance (Gibraltar BSN). In my free time, you'll find me advocating for a social cause, singing, dancing, or laughing—what's life without comedy and treating it like a party? ;)

Their ideal manager

Lauralyn Silva expects a manager to be concerned foremost with the team's wellbeing. She needs a manager who will listen to her with compassion, and who takes individual limitations into account. The leader who inspires her and whom she trusts is one who acknowledges human aspects instead of focusing solely on results. She is motivated by teamwork and collective development.

The ideal culture for them

Lauralyn Silva has the capacity to thrive in a wide range of cultures. There is no standard approach or environment that suits her better than others. She finds advantages and drawbacks in every type of work environment. Her level of commitment will therefore not be determined by the culture of the company, but rather by whether her role has the potential to make her feel fulfilled. If her main motivational factors are satisfied by the role, she will be capable of adapting and thriving in any environment.

How they learn new skills and concepts

Brilliant from an intellectual point of view, Lauralyn Silva tends to easily assimilate foreign concepts. She is able to understand new or complex subjects without needing to put them into practice. This means she can develop her skills by reaserching and reading on diverse subjects. She needs to be intellectually stimulated by her work, and might get easily bored otherwise.

Lauralyn Silva's spontaneous nature leads her to learn by testing out concepts and techniques herself. She finds that the best way to acquire new knowledge is to first try, develop her understanding through failure, and then try again. She can sometimes lack patience. To assimilate new ideas or new knowledge, she first needs to experiment by herself.
