Malisse Tan, Founder & CEO of BOBBLE
How would you describe your creative leadership?
Purposeful messaging through content and visual designs.
How would you advise women creatives?
Don't be afraid to bet on yourself; invest in yourself to the point that someone wants to invest in you.
What is your business ethos and how does it relate to your creative journey?
"You never know if you don't ask". If you don't ask, you definitely won't get. I believe in the power of asking which enables you to increase your opportunities for business, reduces risks in assumptions on what your customers want and may lead to sparking some creative innovation.
Please share with us who/what you are constantly inspired by!
The world isn't always kind, and I'm inspired by people and how resilient they are, despite the challenging, traumatic situations they may be facing. It's also been amazing to see the birth and growth of some amazing homegrown brands in Malaysia in recent years that are also very purpose driven, where collectively, are creating some amazing impact to both individuals and communities alike.
Tell us what are the best and worst things about your role.
My favourite would be how all the work we are doing makes an impact to all menstruators, one period at a time, and the long term disruption we are making in the industry. And on the flipside, it's challenging to constantly navigate the weekly curveballs while juggling business and kids as it can be mentally and emotionally exhausting at times!
Who is someone you would love to collaborate with and why?
Sara Blakely - she has done the hard work, speaks out loud and proud, she leads by example and not afraid to show the multiple hats she wears from mother, entrepreneur, colleague and a cheerleader for women.
