“Virginia’s coaching was an important help during my first months in my new position. It was only through her assistance that I was able to form practical, effective steps for myself to fit into the new role. I appreciated her spiritual support, her empathy, her encouragement during all the coaching sessions. Every interaction with Virginia was worthwhile. She was not only a great source of help, but also a very professional, good coach to role model upon!”

For 15 years I focused my effort on corporate marketing roles. In that time it became increasingly important to be able to make a difference beyond the corporate bottom line. It was this drive that attracted me to coaching & sustainable leadership development. This required a period of intense learning, a broadening of my skill set & courage to step into new industries to deliver the positive impact that I craved. Now, as a leadership strategist, executive coach, entrepreneur & yoga instructor, I have finally created a role that enables me to make a difference every day.

Virginia has a passion for developing sustainable global leaders. She is an accomplished leadership strategist, entrepreneur, executive coach and facilitator working with individuals and teams across Asia Pacific. She is a results and customer-focused leader with 20 years direct Asia Pacific experience in strategic management across multiple industries.

She brings a unique combination of coaching, facilitation, consulting and an extensive 15 year corporate marketing background spanning several industries including retail, food and beverage, airlines, publishing, government and tourism. Current clients include BlackRock, Cathay Pacific and Veolia.
