Ahoy there! I spent my formative years aboard a 47-foot yacht christened 'Mischief,' circumnavigating the globe with my fearless family of four. This decade-long odyssey sculpted my unparalleled lens on embracing life's tumultuous seas and rebounding from early life setbacks.
We charted courses along Australia's exotic East Coast, glided through the vivid hues of the Pacific, and ventured into the mysterious waters of the Indian Ocean en route to South Africa. But here's the kicker: at the tender age of 9, I took an unplanned dip in the Mozambique Channel—sans life jacket. Gazing up at my frantic family from the abyss of the ocean was, let's just say, a 'character-building' moment!
But hold on to your hats, because the thrills didn't stop there. Shortly after my impromptu swim, a monstrous storm wreaked havoc on our aquatic haven, forcing us to weigh anchor in South Africa for a three-year 'sabbatical' of recovery.
Just when we thought we'd conquered the elements, we set sail again, traversing the Atlantic to explore the Americas. However, at 16, our nautical saga met a heart-wrenching climax when 'Mischief' betrayed her name, colliding with a reef off Puerto Rico and sinking into the ocean’s embrace.
Left with nothing but our indomitable spirits and tales of high seas, we returned to Australia to anchor our lives back on terra firma.
Now, doesn't that sound like a blockbuster movie in the making? 🎬⚓
Ready, set, hustle! I'm not just any entrepreneur; I'm the dynamo Co-Founder of Inspire Brands Asia. We're the powerhouse consortium at the pinnacle of Anytime Fitness Asia, backed by the financial virtuosos at Exacta Capital Partners and our savvy Co-Investor, Aura Group. But wait, there's more: in the beginning of the Covid-19 whirlwind, we masterminded a merger & acquisition deal that would make even Wall Street jealous (ok, maybe not 'Billions' episode worthy).
Leveraging my industry muscle in fitness (see what I did there?), I played a key role in the acquisition of the Master Franchisee licenses for Anytime Fitness across nine—count 'em, nine—Asian countries and territories. Now, if that's not turning lemons into a Gatorade sponsorship, I don't know what is!
Are you ready to be dazzled? Not only am I a whirlwind of passion for 'Braving Change,' but I'm also flaunting my INSEAD Master in Change (just a graduation shy, folks!). Pair that with a life story that's anything but ordinary, and you've got a leadership coach who's practically the Swiss Army knife of women's fitness leadership!
Diving deep into the whirlpool of emotions, I specialize in coaching badass women fitness leaders—and their all-star teams—through the labyrinth of sustainable change, all while employing a sophisticated systems psychodynamic lens. Think of it as life coaching, but make it analytical psychology chic.
What's my secret sauce? A blend of no-nonsense pragmatism and a sixth sense for the emotional undercurrents influencing my clients. Add a generous sprinkle of my positive attitude, adaptability, and resilience, and you're looking at a refreshing cocktail of transformative change that even James Bond would find irresistible. Oh, and a slightly corny sense of humour.
So, if you're searching for a buoy in the sea of change, I’m your lighthouse, guiding you towards clearer, calmer waters.
