More about Iris Teh

Can you tell me how long you’ve worked at M&C and your role?

I worked previously as Senior Client Services Manager at M&C from 2020 to 2022 for 2 years. I’ve rejoined as a Client Success Director in Asia to provide senior integrated and strategic marketing support and oversee projects and client accounts in the region. Excited to be back!

What does a typical workday look like for you?

I wake up around 6:30 am during the work week and have breakfast: oat porridge and a cup of espresso coffee with foam milk. If I have time, I will watch the morning TV news on CNA while having breakfast and coffee.

While commuting to the office, I enjoy listening to FM 98.7 Perfect Ten station. Once at work, I start planning my day, looking at Wrike, our project management software, and clearing any emails.

At the end of the workday, I will either have dinner outside before heading home or prepare a simple dinner. I’m vegetarian—vegan—when I can manage it. So, I enjoy stir-fried vegetables (with or without fusilli pasta, vermicelli or noodles) and vegetables (tom yum, mala or shoyu-based) soup.

I will relax in front of the TV to watch the news on CNA or Korean dramas if time permits before bed at 10:30 pm.

Are you a coffee or tea person? How do you like it?

I am a coffee person. At home, I have an espresso machine to make my coffee. I grind my coffee beans, usually dark or medium roast, as I do not like acidic coffee, usually with milk, or occasionally just black.

I prefer non-caffeine tea such as camomile, peppermint, flower or herbal tea, as black or green tea seems to affect me unless it’s Taiwanese bubble tea!

What’s your favourite way to spend a day off?

I usually go for an hour on Saturday mornings for a trampoline fitness class. It’s a great way to destress, too. On alternate Sundays, I will hike with friends in Singapore. I love to catch up with friends over meals or coffee during off days or after work. While at home, I will chill to watch the latest Korean drama or Amazon Prime videos.
