Li Onn Teh

Introduction

Li Onn Teh has always been interested in different approaches to a challenge and the analytics behind them. With that interest in mind, he was drawn towards the engineering field which enabled him to sharpen his analytical observation as well as strong work ethics and discipline. Before joining Partners in Performance, Li Onn had prior consulting experience on industrial engineering project in Victoria. He also spent multiple years in the education sector as a valued member of the mathematics and physics coaching community.

Li Onn has volunteered and worked on projects throughout both Australia and Malaysia, however it is a holiday in South Africa that has left the biggest impression on him. Travelling through Pilanesberg National Park, where wild animals roam in their natural environment, is an experience he won’t forget. For his next adventure, he has his sights set on a bungee jump from Macau Tower. When it comes to fun closer to home, you’ll find him on the hunt for great food to enjoy or cooking up a spread to share.
