“Think global, act local” (Patrick Geddes)

Born in Vietnam, studying in the UK, working and travelling extensively in the South East Asia region, I have been interested in global-local interactions for many years. I am a bestselling author writing about this topic in Myanmar. My clients say that I can tailor the programs to their specific needs very well. They like that the programs are interactive and experimental which helps them a great deal in working with local people at ease. I love the very moment when my clients experience their epiphany: it is a light bulb from their self-reflection! Why not book a free 10-min Introductory Session to find out more?
