Daphne Shen

I’m the Chief of Staff to the Partners at Airtree, focusing on how we run leadership ops, strategic planning and operational cadences.

My pathway to tech started after I accidentally signed up for a hackathon in 2016. I was inspired by the ecosystem, and have since spent my career running community events, founding my own VR language learning startup, and scaling two high-growth startups.

What I nerd out over

I love playing around with new productivity tools in both my personal and professional life. Talk to me about my restaurant tracker in Airtable or how I do personal sprint planning in Notion! Despite all the tools I try, I’m still a big fan of the bullet journal method, and that’s how I prioritise my day-to-day. My biggest tip is to learn the keyboard shortcuts of your favourite tools. You’ll save so much time!

I’m on the lookout for

The latest obscure internet drama. My guilty pleasure is diving way too deep into internet culture—I know more about esports and Twitch streamers than I probably should.

Here’s where you’ll find me on the weekend

Outside of work, you’ll see me walking my two corgis, attempting a new aerial hoop trick, or signing up to fun art classes around Sydney with friends.
