Amy Poon

Amy Poon

The irreverent and effervescent Amy Poon (formerly Allen) was educated at Wycombe Abbey and in various restaurants around the world.

She graduated from Oxford with a degree in Japanese and has lived in Geneva, Tokyo, Sydney and Singapore. She has worked in advertising and PR, was an image consultant, has had a contemporary Asian art business, co-founded a public arts programme, run her own event management company, owned a champagne bar, sat on the executive committee of UNIFEM Singapore and was Champagne Jacquesson’s business development director for Asia-Pacific.

In another life, she tutored French and Latin for Common Entrance, taught English at a Japanese pharmaceutical company and moonlighted as a hostess at One Eyed Jack’s while holding down a day job. Nominated one of Singapore’s most stylish women, Amy has graced the pages of Singapore’s glossies from Harper’s Bazaar to Tatler, and Europe’s 34.

Amy currently lives in London, where she juggles and struggles with the modern definition of “work life balance” – not enough work and not enough balance.
