Beth MacDonald

Manila, Philippines

“I grew up in Johnson & Johnson as a scientist and engineer leading increasingly larger and more diverse groups of people. Moving to Asia caused me to reconsider many things in my life, from what I held as true about the world to what my contribution to the world could be. I decided to shift to coaching and facilitation and undertook a series of studies that opened my eyes to new ways of seeing people and systems and how I can contribute to them.”

Professionally, Beth’s lifelong focus has been on unleashing the creative potential of people and organizations. She shifted from the realm of science and design into the world of facilitation and coaching in 2004. Although she has worked around the globe, the majority of her work has been focused in Asia.

She has supported Asian organisations in shifting from national to regional players or regional to global players; and has supported multinationals in extending their success into Asian markets.
