About the speaker
Victoria Yim. Mum to her cheeky monkey, Liam, Victoria started The Bright Life because she wanted to provide a space for parents and kids to explore different ways of spending their days. With a background in Public Relations and Journalism, Victoria left the world of press releases to pursue a certification in teaching kids using the Montessori method. Realising how she could use the philosophy to support other parents out there, she translated the teacher’s manual into a parenting curriculum.
These days, she runs workshops, talks and events on her Montessori curriculum and mindfulness for families. The goal? To let others know that Mondays can be exciting, parenting doesn’t have to be a journey full of self-doubt, and growing up must be more than just scoring good grades.
Tan Shie Boon. Personally transformed for the better by Art du Déplacement and a huge passion for coaching, Shie Boon wishes to play a part in preserving and spreading the goodness of the discipline to people of all walks of life.
Shie Boon has taught students of a wide spectrum in age ranging from preschool to seniors in the past 2 years, providing him with an understanding of different needs among the age groups. He was featured in The Straits Times for his initiative to help seniors get active through Art du Déplacement / Parkour.
He describes himself as a happy dreamer, believer of transcending conversations, collaboration, common humanity and goodness.
