First-hand experience of news as a reporter, news anchor, consultant and editor-in-chief

Blaise’s news, journalism and business career has crossed continents and given him extensive experience of diverse newsrooms.

He quickly progressed from a copy editor role at Jakarta Globe to producer and then news anchor at the Globe’s parent Berita Satu Media Holdings (itself a part of the Lippo Group), where he also first got invovled in the business side of news organizations, acting as a force multiplier across all departments. While attending the World Economic Forum on East Asia, Blaise used a free notebook to jot down an idea called ‘Hope Media’.

An editor-in-chief role at Brilio.net fine-tuned Blaise’s vision for the news industry. While there he developed training systems, re-engineered editorial and production processes and created a series of lectures and lessons that redefined how news was produced and structured for an audience of 120 million people. The workflow and lessons he created remain the walls of those newsrooms to this day.

He worked as a consultant and journalist covering extreme regions as he created the business plan for Origin Hope, which launched two years later.
