Wai Foong Ng

I was born in London and spent my formative years in French schools in London and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

After graduating from Cambridge in 2005 with a double degree in Law with French Law I joined PricewaterhouseCoopers as a graduate where I spent 13 years specialising in tax structuring for real estate and private equity funds. In my most recent role, I spent 8 months as Implementation Lead on the roll-out of Salesforce across PwC’s tax practice, helping to influence over 4,000 people to adopt this digital change.

In 2014, I started a blog, Suit & Pie (http://suitandpie.co.uk), documenting my professional journey and interviewing inspiring leaders and entrepreneurs. The blog accumulated over 20,000 reads in its first year and landed me a gig as a Judge at the Editorial Intelligence Comment Awards (with WATC founder, Vanessa Vallely!).

As my network grew, I was drawn towards startups and the drive and tenacity of their founders. In 2016, I co-founded Suits & Startups (http://suitsandstartups.com), a website and community bringing together City professionals and entrepreneurs to share their stories, exchange ideas and innovate outside of their normal networks.

Most recently I have left PwC to become the founder of Matchable (http://wearematchable.com), a platform that matches corporates and their talent with non-profits to work on skilled volunteering projects that will help effect radical change in the social sector. I believe that in the future doing good will be embedded in every company’s DNA and am hoping to help make this happen through Matchable!
