Experience

In 1983, I arrived in Canada as a landed immigrant after a life-risking journey from Vietnam and 2 refugee camps in Indonesia. 3 years later, I got a part-time job programming computer software while still in grade 10 and learning English as a second language. All that fun and excitement distracted me from my earlier dream of becoming a school teacher. I went on to enjoy a robust and rewarding career in information technology, working with many public and private organizations across North America.

In 2006, I founded a leadership & management consulting company, based in Western Canada. When 2010 rolled around, I was invited to facilitate business, management, and leadership courses for universities and colleges. My career took another turn, back toward my teenage dream of teaching.

Today, I enjoy a dynamic mix of executive coaching, leadership training, management consulting, university teaching, workshop facilitation, and keynote speaking.

I help leaders build collaborative cultures for innovative success.
