Lily Cheng, Founder of the Rising Network

Lily is an advocate in raising the awareness of mental health and gender issues and is passionate about empowering women to reach their full potential. Prior to founding the Rising Network, Lily played a key role in growing and developing a leading technology industry network which brought together a diverse set of hi-tech companies through high quality networking events.  to discuss and promote innovation in the development and application of wireless, mobile, internet, software and related technologies. During her time in this role, Lily was responsible for business growth, engaging with the tech community, members and partners as well as managing the overall marketing and PR function within the business.

Within the decade she spent in the healthcare sector, Lily has held various roles, the most significant included working in the provisions of mental health services.  This became the catalyst in fuelling her desire to empower individuals to create a better life for themselves, and to improve health and well-being. It is her all-inclusive approach to employee well-being and organisational psychology which enables Lily to create effective learning and development workshops alongside initiatives for individuals and organisations to improve the bottom-line performance. Her commitment is to bring people together, from all industries and communities to promote the progression and advancement of women.
