“I would like to extend our sincere appreciation for your sharing. It is highly relevant, thought-provoking and was well-received by our members, many of whom are professionals and business leaders. The Q&A session was dynamic and intense. I am certain that our members have benefited tremendously from this sharing.

The primary takeaway from the session is how to prepare for a prolonged adjustment to the current COVID-19 pandemic and how leaders can be prepared to make the necessary shift in the manner they are leading and engaging the team in the “new normal” of the post-pandemic workplace. The case studies and examples used during the session were also useful.”

“We would like to express our most sincere appreciation for you taking some of your valuable time in providing the webinar for our Banking and Financial Services Union members.

Your ‘Influence with Authority’ session had benefitted our members immensely. Fresh graduates who have just entered the workforce had provided positive feedback, and even the
more experienced staff had gleaned something valuable from your session. The lessons learned will come in useful during the day-to-day function within their companies!

On behalf of the team, I wish you all the best for your future undertaking and thank you once again for the enriching session for our members.”

“The practical case studies and important lessons you impart across the intensive modules; together with the systematic and fact-based approach of the programme, allow for a deep understanding of the best practices and the pertinent leadership practices that can be immediately applied to our daily work. The learnings are not just critical to our organisation’s digital transformation needs, but also each participants’ professional and personal leadership development.

I would recommend CEE and DLI for any organization looking to develop its senior leadership team. The lessons are practical and the learnings profound. The programme has put us in good stead to deliver on our responsibilities as leaders; as we push forward through challenges and embrace new opportunities that the digitally charged era of Industry 4.0 offers us.“


“One valued aspect of the Masterclass is the highly contemporary, practical and relevant nature of the programme to our business. The highly experiential course utilises a dynamic blend of skilled instructor presentation and individual as well as group skill practice in each of the concepts presented, using real business concerns, issues and challenges brought by participants.

The introduction of multiple critical thinking process tools (including Cognitive Readiness, RED Model, Phoenix Checklist and Force Field Analysis) allows our leaders to look at problems comprehensively and make well-thought-out recommended action plans and effective decisions. The participants can use the processes they learned to apply to ongoing business challenges they faced in leading their respective teams toward achieving our organisation’s mission, vision, strategic intent, goals and KPIs.”


“The Action Learning-based Workplace Project, where the participants were required to work on specifically designed project teams, have been found by them to be extremely useful as they were able to immediately apply newly-acquired leadership practices for multidimensional problem-solving to important challenges and opportunities facing their organizations.

The participants also valued the series of contemporary and practical case studies that were introduced throughout the programme which were relevant to their circumstances. The programme curriculum includes breakthrough academic research from the latest book, “Leadership in Disruptive Times” (2020), which the participants have found to be critical in developing their agility in navigating the complexity of leading in an era of the highly disruptive and digital-driven workplace.”

“Without a doubt, you have helped to elevate his level of performance and enabled him to be a stronger executive and leader. You have a very effective style and approach. First and foremost, it comes across clearly that you take this very personally – there is a very strong vested interest in ensuring the individual is successful. You also hold yourself accountable and ensures there is a regular check-in with the sponsor to assess and evaluate the level of improvement – these alone gives me full confidence in your commitment to results and excellence.

Certainly, the breadth of your experience is impressive and provides a very good perspective for the leader that you coached. There is certainly a case to be made about learning from the best, and you have this unique ability to distil your learnings from the best leaders in the regions and pass that on in your coaching program. I have no hesitancy in recommending you as a top tier professional executive coach.”


“The extensive case studies of global leading organizations including Microsoft, Netflix, Starbucks and DBS Digital Banking highlights the importance of the leaders’ role in both creative disruption and disruptive innovation by connecting resources and people adeptly to build an innovation-driven and customer-centric culture to develop and implement digital transformation agendas within their organization.

The Action Learning Workplace Project as part of the Post-Workshop Assignment enables the participants to implement the newly acquired leadership skills and tools at a rapid pace within their organization and, crucially, to adapt quickly to change by adopting a ‘disruptive digital mindset’ and lead the disruption of their organization again and again to ensure their sustainability in the highly competitive era of the Fourth Industrial Revolution (Industry 4.0).”


“Based on our various interactions and mentee feedback, it is amply clear that the engagement was highly valued-add ing in terms of self-reflection about leadership styles and learning techniques to adapt them based on different people and situations. Your open, honest, direct style of interaction has been very helpful in quickly gaining relevant insights. At the same time, your support in sharing and applying critical tools to manage different levels of influence and impact has also been helpful to shorten the learning curve in the mentees’ leadership development journey.”


“I would like to express my sincere gratitude for your ongoing executive coaching for one of our Global Senior Vice President. Thanks to your cross-cultural coaching the said senior leader could, in his new role, bridge the cultural gap and better work to meet the company expectations. He could feel and understand the impact of cultural differences in his new challenge and he learned how to build a good relationship with collaborators emphasizing cooperation, group goals and harmony in his new working environment.”
