I‘m Shujuan Wang, executive director of Chuanshen Agricultural Product Development Co.Ltd, which is devoted to create and promote honey product made by Chinese bee.
My business started back in 2009, right after the massive earthquake in 2008, as one of the towns which took major damage in this disaster, my hometown Qingchuan county is deeply wounded, this is one reason which motived me to go back home and start this business. After 2 years operation, in order to have better development, I decided to go to Melbourne for self-improvement in 2011, and in 2013 I received my master degree of communication from Deakin University. Right after graduation, I went back home continue my business. This study journey gave me a lot, not only professional information, but also first-hand information and real market research in field, all of which benefitted me a lot.
In 2014, I’m honored to be invited as one of the representatives to attend Alibaba NYSE enlisting event as a bell-ringer, which changed my life quite a lot.
One of my initial intention to start my business is to do what I can to help my hometown rebuild and recover. So I had no hesitation to begin my charity career as I was starting my business. For the last 11 years, as one of the local charity leaders, I cooperated with Alibaba group and other companies and organizations, and organized over 64 times of charity events, which mainly target local rural household, leftover elders and children who suffered from poverty, over 1100 people involved in those events.

From an international student at UOW to a global knowledge leader, from a software engineer to a creative technologist at Google Sydney and a director at ByteDance in Beijing, from an introvert to a TEDx speaker and a Vivid Sydney panelist, from an Australian delegate of the G20 YEA to an explorer across Antarctica to the South Pole, the only constant in my life is change.
At Google Sydney, I led innovative projects to help global companies using ‘AI first’ approach and Data-Driven Creative solutions, to manage global campaign launches with creative agencies using highly advanced custom-made solutions for programmatic advertising.
As Technology Evangelist for China Australia Millennial Project, I utilized my technology experiences to forge lasting cross-cultural connections and activate future-focused solutions through transcending borders, empowering millennial talent and being an enabler of diverse global networks across Australia and China.
Curiosity and continuous learning motivate me to move up and on. I will continue to embrace challenges and explore Life Outside My Comfort Zone.
