James Tong

Head of People

James heads up our People and Culture department and is responsible for developing high level people strategies that the team can benefit from. He also oversees all the people projects and operations, working closely with the directors and managers to collaboratively build a talented team who can showcase their full potential. James is passionate about creating positive cultures and enhancing the employees’ experiences at Meeting Place.

In the past, James has built HR/People functions from scratch for award-winning SMEs. With over 12 years’ experience specialising in Human Resources and Management, he has worked in various industries including housing, government, technology, and engineering. James has an interest in fighting for better employee rights for parents, and volunteers with the charity, Pregnant Then Screwed.

When not engrossed in people practices, James like to spend his time playing 5 a-side football outside of work. When he isn’t busy trying out new activities with his toddler daughter, you may find him scouring the city’s restaurants for food, at a bar playing foosball or sat in the depths of a café with a chessboard strategically considering his next move.
