Verdayne is the Chief of Staff for Microsoft Asia, where she orchestrates the work of the One Microsoft Asia Leadership Team. Verdayne's previous roles at Microsoft saw her leading commercial communications and international, insight-driven, and award winning campaigns that highlighted thought leadership. Prior to Microsoft, Verdayne spent seven years in a regional role with EMC, leading a team and managing integrated marketing for seven markets.
As a leader, Verdayne believes that everything we do needs to be about putting people—employees, customers, the community we serve—at the centre of our business, sales, marketing and communications. And as a mentor, she believes there is world class talent in Asia and we have what it takes to lead the world in many ways.
During her free time, she enjoys keeping fit, podcasting, food adventures and hopes to horse ride again someday.
We’re not a webinar. Nor are we an online course. NewCampus is a community learning experience—interactive, intimate and energising. You are not listening passively, you will be actively getting involved. Our sessions are designed so that you actually get to interact with both the speaker, but also more importantly with your new peers. They will be your future collaborators, clients and co-founders.
All our learnings formats—workshops, mentoring sessions, tiny conferences, dialogues and more—are designed with these principles in mind. There will always be a chance for you to share ideas in a small group, practice newly minted skills and get real-time feedback.
A stable wifi connection, a quiet well-lit corner and some headphones. After confirming your spot, you will receive instructions in your email about how to join this session via Zoom. You will also need to be ready to switch on your laptop camera and microphone to interact with your fellow colearners, who will need to be able to hear and see you.
NewCampus works best for:
Many members are in the first 5-15 years of their career, but our community is diverse and sees many in different age groups.
Most colearners join in from the Asia Pacific region which our session times work best for, but we are seeing new people from Europe and the US every week.
You can choose to purchase a ticket, or book your spot as a member.
Members get access to all our events, classes and programmes, but also get much more: priority access, warm introductions to speakers, curated introductions personalised for your goals, invites to other exclusive events etc. We even help you review LinkedIn resumes, portfolios, and pitch decks if that’s what you need.

NewCampus brings together growth-minded executives, entrepreneurs, and creative professionals who prioritise levelling up themselves, their companies and their communities.
