It’s Not About Me - Joanna Flint

We’re back from Covid (hooray!) and so even more excited about this week’s inspiring guest! 

Joanna Flint is Chief Commercial Officer for the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group where she’s responsible for its global marketing, sales, revenue management, brand and distribution functions. She is also a member of the company’s Board. 

Joanna joined the luxury brand last year after more than twelve years with Google in Asia where, amongst other roles, she was Managing Director of Google Singapore. Based in Singapore with her family, after 20 years living in Asia, Joanna is also a member of YPO and a mentor to early stage start-ups. 

If you’re contemplating your career or thinking about changing roles then you have come to the right place because Joanna has some of the most thoughtful musings on this topic we’ve heard. 

In this episode you’ll learn:

  • The incredible story of why Joanna nearly didn’t apply for the top job at Google in Singapore and what happened to make her change her mind
  • The opportunities she feels she wasted because she wasn’t super clear about what she wanted next in her career
  • Exactly how Joanna got that clarity on what her next role needed to look like
  • And how she manages the challenges of leading a truly global team without working 24/7.

We know you’ll love the amazing insights and advice shared in this conversation, so enjoy this episode with the insightful and passionate Joanna Flint. 

A quick P.S. from us that we are giving our mini episodes a little break for a while, so we’ll be back in two weeks time with our next conversation with an amazing, pioneering female leader. Hint - she’s ‘uber’ cool.
