"Helping People To Help Themselves to Impact Others with Empathy and Compassion."




I worked in U.S. ICT multinational corporations for over 28 years before reinventing myself as an entrepreneur, bestselling author and motivational speaker since 2008. In 2020, I worked with the National University of Singapore Society (NUSS) to conduct Life Learning Courses/Workshops (including "Design Your Life or Business After 50") in conjunction with the National Silver Academy's Lifelong Learning Initiative. I help people who are above 50 re-discover their life purpose and to put real, useful meaning to their lives and to positively impact others.


As an ICF Associated Certified Coach (ACC), I have coached clients from Europe, Asia and North America and worked with my peer coaches to deliver group coaching. To pay forward, I also provide probono life and career coaching to NUS undergraduates and graduates. Since 2013, I have been mentor to NUS business and engineering undergraduates under the NUSS-NUS Mentorship Programme. 

I also provide business coaching by leveraging on my extensive experience in sales, sales management, strategic selling, marketing, customer service, product development and product management. I spent many years driving business for U.S. Fortune 500 Companies in Asia and the Middle-East North Africa (MENA).

Using MIT’s Sloan School of Management’s Approach to Design Thinking and Singapore’s Ministry of Communications and Information’s Certification on Implementing Design Thinking and leveraging my business experience, I help small businesses leverage Design Thinking to drive innovation in product, service and experience design. I run sales immersion, customer engagement, business consulting and design thinking workshops for my customers to sharpen their competitive edge. As a Certified Professional Coach, I mentor corporate warriors and business owners to succeed in their business by fast tracking their learning curve and avoiding common pitfalls.


I survived life-threatening kidney cancer and liver hepatitis and since 2018, I keep myself healthy through meditation and by practicing mindfulness. I help my clients to revitalize their body, reactivate their mind and rejuvenate their soul for peak performance. I champion healthy living in Singapore to encourage corporate warriors to take care of health and maintain peak performance.


I currently reside in Singapore with my wife and two young sons.
