He has worked for Arab-Malaysian Merchant Bank, KPMG Peat Marwick, The Edge, Bloomberg, Thomson-Reuters, BFM Media and the Australian Financial Review. His last full-time job was at Thomson-Reuters in London in 2008.
Chuang was a co-founder of Asian Auto Interactive, an auto portal that was sold in its entirety to Main Market-listed Delloyd Ventures Bhd in 2002.

WHERE CAN YOU FIND DO MORE?
DoMore is on:
is the 31-year old Khoo Hsu Chuang
“At that age I had already worked for about ten years and was eager to start my own business. I also had some savings and was keen to make fewer mistakes than my friends, some of whom had lost vast amounts of money on the share market.
I had also stopped smoking and was working out and travelling regularly, knowing full well the importance of a balanced lifestyle. Despite being a journalist and knowing tons of people I had few mentors and even fewer people in my circle who I felt close enough to ask these existential questions to. Fast-forward nearly two decades to today where we have accessible audio and video platforms like Spotify and YouTube where knowledge and wisdom is available 24/7/365.
It is my belief that the in-depth and heartfelt conversations I conduct with successful, brave and ethical people will help people like the 31-year-old me answer the life questions I had in an easy and accessible way.”
I HAVE RULES ..
Do More is a personal endeavor where I seek out and speak to people whom I personally respect in the fields of INVESTMENT, ENTREPRENEURSHIP and LEADERSHIP.
These are the rules I abide by:
1. Entrepreneurs need to own their own companies. And while bigger is usually better, I will also speak to people who conduct their business in an ethical, equitable yet positively disruptive way.
2. Investors can be employees but stand out in terms of their investing principles and beliefs, accompanying long and established track records of benchmark-beating returns in all manner of asset classes. The more diversified, the better.
3. I seek out people who conduct their lives by taking the path less trodden. They do not have to be rich or famous but are outstanding for their courage, beliefs and ethical values.
4. I speak mainly to Asians. We live in an era of unprecedented change and Asia sits at the economic, social and political epicentre of this shift. This continent’s best and brightest deserve to be heard. However, because of the nascent nature of the region, much expertise remains Western-centric (for example in the crypto or investment space) and so, a non-Asian speaker might have a deeper and wider view.
5. I DO NOT SPEAK TO POLITICIANS. Many of them lie, cheat and steal for their personal benefit, bankrupting society and their nations in the process. They are anathema to the beliefs of this channel. However, I do accept that there remain some good people in politics though I fear they remain in the minority, quietly fighting an uphill battle in their quest to do good by their fellow humans.
6. For obvious reasons, I speak VERY sparingly about race, religion or royalty.
