From Conflict and Blame to Responsibility and Fame

*This article was featured in the Enterprising Women magazine Volume 16 number 4 edition in 2015 One day the phone rang on my desk and thus began an interesting journey.  I was being approached by a large multinational corporation to coach two senior executives who “hated” each other. I was told they simply could not work together and were constantly fighting each other and their colleagues.  One was presented to me as being a sweet and usually cooperative woman, whereas…

I travelled and this is what I saw. Thank you Nepal!

Hello, Do you also feel that when you travel, you (re)connect with parts of you, you had forgotten about? I went to Nepal to celebrate a friend’s birthday and visit certain philanthropic projects my Rotary Club (and I) have had over the past few years…I knew Nepal had suffered a severe earthquake about a year ago and was expecting to see some vestiges of that…at first, nothing was obvious. The hotel we stayed at overnight was in good condition and…

Change…from old comfort to new adventure!

How do you like change? I tend to like being in my comfort zone and then suddenly I need an adventure…and I go for it…it is like my soul says: come on, let's explore new horizons... 6 years ago, Jennifer Walker (www.jennifer-walker.com) and I decided, over coffee, to open an office together…we strolled down Queen’s Road and were led to what became known as 1103 for short, (1103 Commercial House, 35 Queen’s Road, Central) a haven from the hustle and…

Chinese Year of the Monkey

Are you prepared for the Chinese year of the Monkey? We have just transitioned from 2015 into 2016 and shortly the Chinese New Year will be upon us, with all its additional beliefs, dos and don’ts…they say the sign of the Monkey is volatile, all over the place, challenging, “cheeky! However, and especially in this new era of 2016 and beyond, we can chose to see our lives from an aspect of abundance and joy and our reality will reflect…

Between the Years

Hello The “time between the years” is what this time between Christmas and the New Year is called in German…and indeed it is a time where most activities of the year just pass us by, peter out and we gear up to the new…what is to come.  What can we expect for ourselves this upcoming year?  It’s exciting to think up scenarios of what that will look like. It is a good time to look back and reflect on all…

Com-Unity Spirit

On June 27th at the Alive Wellness Center, I will be the moderator at an event centered on how spirituality makes sense in the business world.  On how we can support the younger generation build a better world AND what constitutes a progressive society. Lily Ting will share the stage with me.  She was born in France and was educated in a Christian environment while growing up in a traditional Chinese family.  Since her childhood, she has developed a curiosity…

I COULDN’T EVEN TAKE A DAY OFF OF WORK!!!

“The thought of getting out of bed and get ready to tackle yet another day at work was just too much to handle. In fact…each morning, it was beginning to feel like that more often than not. On this day I picked up the phone and called work to tell them I wasn’t feeling good and I wasn’t going into work. I hung up and IMMEDIATELY felt better. But it was fleeting. My next thought was about all the work…

5 Reason why you should learn to breathe

When I speak in front of an audience, one exercise I love to do is a breathing exercise.  I literally teach the audience how to breathe. What?  Don’t we all know how to breathe? Well of course we all know how to breathe, otherwise we would hardly be alive.  However, I teach them how to breathe in a way that will improve their mind and body (health) and create new possibilities. You have to pay attention to what you are…

Is your LIFE a Mirage?

Have you ever had a dream? Or many? One of mine was to experience the Sahara meeting the Atlantic...So I accepted an invitation to a traditional Moroccan wedding in Marrakech and took the opportunity to fly to Dakhla in Western Sahara, the southernmost part of Morocco to fulfill that dream. This is an area where the undercurrents of dissent run strong (tribal issues are politically influenced by a neighbouring country) However the larger part of the population are happy, as…

Enterprising Women Awards

I am the last one in line of my group to receive my 2015 Enterprising Women’s Honoree Award. There are 8 groups that are being honored this night… 80 women who have met certain criteria throughout the year, two of which are sales revenue and philanthropic work. As I am inching toward the stage, listening to each woman in front of me receive her award, everything goes silent and still, and all I can hear is the sound of my…

And the Oscar goes to...

The Oscars, the stars, the red carpet! It was all sooooo exciting! The 2 hours of make up, the one-hour of hair styling, the uncomfortable shoes! It was all so exhausting! Now add to that the pressure to look great, the pressure to make sure you get interviewed and lastly the pressure to keep up with the illusion. 2014 was my maiden voyage onto the pressure cooker that is the red carpet of the Academy Awards. I have watched the…

Chinese New Year 2015

Kung Hei Fat Choi and happy year of the Sheep (Goat? Ram?) I have just landed in New York where I shall celebrate what for us Hong Kongers is an important holiday, the beginning of a new year, and I wanted to share a vision I had as a young woman considering her future…. The headline would read….”Secretary General Jacqueline Muller ends War”. I was 16 years old at the time and I was dreaming about what I would do…
