Lily Cheng, Festival Committee Member

Founder, The Rising Network

Prior to founding the Rising Network, Lily played a key role in growing and developing a leading technology industry network. She 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. These 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 holistic 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 and to promote the progression and advancement of women. She is an advocate in raising the awareness of mental health in a positive light and believes in a holistic approach to life.
