As a career coach, I help individuals to get clarity on their goals and aspirations and support them along the way using individualized step by step coaching exercises to relieve anxiety and overcome bottlenecks.
Learned about B Lab and B Corp Movement in 2007 which inspired me to assist purpose-driven organizations to build meaningful brands and sustainable business, develop wellness culture, and create measurable impacts to stay relevant, competitive and impactful in the future economy.
My passion for sustainability blends with my coaching direction and over 12 years experience in business management with major global investment banks in the Asia Pacific Region. Actively involved with both private and not for profit sectors and with more than 20 years of China experience, I had also worked in Singapore, Tokyo and Zurich and established effective relationships with professionals in Europe, US and Asia Pacific.

Hi Amy, thank you for the opportunity to experience your very inspiring workshop regarding Emotional Wellness. I was touched by your message and the content as it truly manifest our feelings that we have kept within us, and such feelings were very often unknown and foreign to us.
You came across as someone with such a big heart to support the needy in our community. In this turbulent time in Hong Kong, I sincerely hope people of any social levels and corporate citizens can benefit from this workshop. Seriously everyone of us needs to get in touch with our raw emotions and learn to deal with it constructively so we can live our lives in full.

Amy is inspiring person that you will definitely love to meet. She is warm and caring, sensitive and reflective. During the coaching sessions with Amy, she always leads me to find out who the person I truly am and guides me to the answers that already lie inside me. She is the best coach I’ve ever met and I highly recommend her to anyone who wish to know more about himself/herself.
Senior Sustainability Officer
Amy appeared when I was facing one of the most difficult moments in my life. By that time, there were a lot of changes at my workplace, putting me under huge pressure. I was so emotional that I could not decide whether to stay or leave. Through coaching, Amy helped me get through the challenges, explore the potentials in myself and finally come out stronger. I am grateful for meeting her.
I remember during the coaching sessions, she was very focused listening to me so that she was able to ask crucial questions that often helped me think differently. Yet, I never felt she is a “professional” far away from me. Instead, I felt she was like my friend walking beside me.
Amy is a warm-hearted and sympathetic person. She cares very much about those who turn to her for help . I think these are what make her coaching so powerful.
NGO promoting environmental protection
There has been 2 months after the coaching. Although the period was just 4 weeks, it means a lot for me. My career is now at the bottle neck, I feel that I can work quite smoothly in my familiar area so I wish to go to next level out of my comfort zone. I am not afraid of walking out of the zone, however, I don’t know which direction I should go. The coaching period assist me to think about my future, my real needs and wishes, even I could picture out the situation of my life in 20 years later. Although I don’t know if this picture is realistic, at least I have a clearer direction to follow, in terms of my mind and heart. Amy is not just a coach, but also a friend, an elder sister, a mentor and a companion. I am glad that we met in the PolyU event and I started conversation with Amy, leading me to have the opportunity to being coached.
Amy's coaching is very thoughtful and impressive. During the 4 weeks coaching sessions, I understand my strengthens and weaknesses more, my career goal is successfully built up under her guidance.
Amy is a generous, passionate and flexible career coach who uses her profession to inspire and guided me to explore my career possibilities. She always reminds me to feel and activate my heart to experience life. She also digs out the key issues which affect the sustainability of my career.
She uses her magic feather sweep to remove the dust on my career path as well as motivate me to move forward. I hope to show you my moonshine with dramatic cloud in front .
Masterplanning and Urban Design
Few life-changing stories came with it when I first heard of Amy’s name. Though I believe I have sufficient understanding about my own strengths/ weaknesses and career goal, I decided to join the program out of curiosity to begin with.
Unlike any other coaching/ mentoring which focuses on giving recommendations and suggestions, Amy brought me to wonderland of my own inner-self, where I was free to explore items inside while she was carefully watching and giving kind reminders.
She is wise, thoughtful and knowledgable, yet she lies low and not showing off her learnings. She carefully observes and chooses the correct wordings, timing and method to convey her messages, making her coaching personalized and powerful.
During the session, Amy always shows patience, calm and empathy no matter what situation. She made you feel being understood and respected, not only by her, but also by your own self.
The experience of participating Inside Out program with Amy is extraordinary and one of a kind. Thank you.
