Welcome to Tiger Spirit

Creativity into Action


My name is Yang-May Ooi. I am a writer, speaker and multi-media actionista.


Our Tiger Spirit is the wild, unstoppable creativity that prowls inside us, ready to spring into action and transform our world.


My Tiger Spirit gives me drive, energy and focus to pursue my multi-media projects – and to support and champion others to set free their transformative creative energy. What about yours?


Welcome to my online journal where I share my work in progress. My journalling blog is also where I explore our collaborative relationship with the Tiger Spirit of creativity in all of us.  My hope is to inspire and champion others to set free their Tiger Spirit and get their creative work out there and noticed.


My creative work has included novels The Flame Tree and Mindgame, a stage performance and memoir in book form Bound Feet Blues, and a cross cultural blog and podcast Fusion View.


I am currently working on my own multi-media projects, including ReWilding My Life , Creative Conversations and South London Voices – as well as for arts and non-profit enterprises: Through the Lens of John Thomson Exhibition (Multi-Media Blogger), and the Pan Asian Women’s Association (Online Magazine Editor) and Beyond Conflict (Social Media Advisor).


I also offer bespoke training and coaching for a handful of motivated clients (as my schedule permits) in:

o Transforming your creativity into action

o Public speaking, TEDx talks, personal presence and confidence

o Video blogging and Audio podcasting skills, including presenting, equipment handling and postproduction.


I hope you’ll enjoy taking a look around this online space and especially my creative journal at the Tiger Spirit Blog. Please do get in touch via the Contact page – I’d love to hear from you.
