Hi, I’m Ian Chew.

As a content strategist, I work with world class entrepreneurs including 6, 7-figure agency founders and a former Clinton House speechwriter. I have helped develop content that got over 6 million cumulative views in less than 18 months — including an Inc. article that was shared 200,000+ times:


On the side, I have spearheaded quality, impactful online content projects, including coauthoring a book used to train over 10,000 talents in Microsoft, Intel and other organizations, and a visual journalism project that got me on major media outlets. Out of my recent exploits, I co-created the largest learning community in the world dedicated to learning how to learn (26,000+ members.)
