Storytelling: Broadcasting Secrets for the Boardroom
Simone Heng has worked as a broadcaster in Australia, Asia and the Middle East for brands like Virgin Radio, HBO Asia and CNN for over a decade. Simone is currently based in Singapore where she is on air with the city’s leading English-language radio station Class 95FM.
Simone began her career in Singapore in 2005 as an entertainment TV host for regional cable network, HBO Asia. In late 2008 she was offered a package to move to Dubai where she went on to establish herself as an announcer for Virgin Radio International as part of its heavily buzzed-about Dubai station. During her 5 years in Dubai, Simone also hosted CNN International’s “CNN Go” luxury special. Simone was nominated four years in a row as Personality of the Year in the Best in Dubai Awards.
As an entertainment reporter some of her interview highlights include; Dua Lipa, Charli XCX, Anne Marie, Kim, Kourtney and Khloe Kardashian, Naomi Campbell, Lewis Hamilton, Gerard Butler, Adriana Lima, Patricia Field, David Gandy, Dev Patel, Danni Minogue and Donna Karan.
As we enter the age of artificial intelligence, mastering the art of human connection will become a superpower of the future. Great human connectors tweak their behaviours and attitudes depending on who they are communicating with, without changing who they are.
Drawing on 13 years as a radio presenter and host, Simone has made human connection her life’s work. She is connecting with the core of her audience from Asia, Australia and Arabia, with everyone from celebrities to royal family members to hundreds of thousands of ordinary people daily on air.
Simone’s unique journey enables her to share secrets to connect with people authentically and quickly.

WHAT OTHERS SAY...
Working with Simone was seamless. Having worked with a number of business leaders and influencers, it is very rare to find someone who can bring that sense of authenticity to their story. I found her presence, skills set and messaging to be a great fit for our community.

Connect with Simone on Social Media:
Her delivery on Human Connection was filled with energy and enthusiasm. We applaud her for the courage to share many personal, yet relevant, stories with our students. Simone has the knack for relating to everyone, as if she was speaking to them individually. Simone reminded us – in a powerful way – that corporate managers and industry leaders need to be human even as we master “techniques” to deal with people and issues. Hopefully, NBS students will graduate to become kinder, more compassionate leaders and will go about making the world a better place!
