Freda Liu

Freda Liu has spent the last decade living and breathing everything in business. Currently, she is the producer and host of her own show, Enterprise on Malaysia’s only business radio station, BFM. Enterprise was birthed to provide the tools to help businesses succeed, covering topics on startup scenes, personal development, technology and organisational development. Her weekly show, HerVantage, on the other hand tackles issues of women in leadership positions and focuses on empowering women in all societal levels.

She was awarded the ASEAN Rice Bowl Awards for Malaysia Startup Journalist Of The Year and a nominee for MaGIC’s Social Enterprise journalist.

Freda has also dedicated much of her time to humanitarian work. She was recently appointed as an advocate for World Vision Malaysia championing water, sanitation, and hygiene. This is something she holds close to her heart as she learned that it was girls that were tasked with collecting clean water from faraway sources in affected communities. The time spent on these tasks keeps them out of school and puts them at risk of physical danger. In addition, she is also an ambassador for Women of Global Change KL Chapter.

Freda is an author of 6 books, with her latest book entitled "Life's a Stage - Stories Of An Empowered Life" talks about her life journey; getting to where she is today and overcoming challenges and bouts of failure in her personal life and her career – all while being a single mum too!
