“In my first year of managing people, I worked like a robot. Working with you provided me fresh perspectives of professional relationships and people problems“

"My engineer has become less "anxious". In the past, I can hear a "scream" inside his head whenever he was given a task that's outside of his comfort zone. But there is more confidence and looking forwardness now, so it gives off a different kind of assurance that he can get the job done"
Bobby Keong
Engineering Manager

"I understood how to deal with crisis, how to balance my attitude towards my team (not too nice but also not too strict), how to lead discussions properly, and how to manage an efficient schedule. The conclusions after every session are very clear and the action points are feasible, thus can be put into practice immediately"

Evolving Engineers

I started my career in Silicon Valley and was previously engineer no. 2 at fintech startup Xfers.

Over the course of 4 years, the team grew from a 5 person outfit working out of a condo apartment to 100+ people in multiple countries. I rose through the ranks to become Engineering Manager of the core transactions platform, managing engineers from Singapore, Indonesia and Vietnam.

Even though I liked what I was doing, I felt something was missing. I decided that being only a shy, square and nerdy engineer isn’t going to cut it in my life.

I also wanted to have deeper connections between my engineering work, personal relationships and being a leader. To be my strongest and truest self, and make an impact on the world.

I have been actively working on coaching and human developmental work since 2016, organising events and volunteering for coaching-related causes. To date, I’ve impacted more than 300 people through the events I organised.

Today, I integrate both my work in coaching and tech startups to help engineers gain confidence, become competent leaders and get promotions.
