MAY CORPUZ

Learning & Development Specialist

 

May Corpuz has is an adventurous & creative trainer. After getting her degree in Film and Audiovisual Communication, she worked as a risk management analyst for JPMorgan while writing for a fashion magazine. She then quit both jobs to live with an indigenous tribe for six months, which inspired her to try her hand at teaching.

After she went back to Manila, she spent six years as a trainer and training and standards supervisor for go fluent, a leading corporate English training company in Europe. Not content with operating on Central European Time eight hours a day, she got a second job as a food writer for one of the top
newspapers in the Philippines.

Her appetite and wanderlust eventually brought her to Thailand, where she went on a gastronomical journey from Nong Khai to Hat Yai. May has been showing her love for grammar and adult education by creating training content and designing curricula for corporate English trainers in Thailand ever since.
