Clients’ Recommendation

“I cannot recommend Koon highly enough for her outstanding coaching skills and structured approach to the program. Koon was able to get involved with key stakeholders to initiate change and create visibility for the effort and work I put in throughout the program. Her coaching led to a remarkable transformation in my career.” Alicia de Los Santos, Director at Macquarie.

“Thank you for helping me uncover the strengths, courage, determination and the better version of myself. Could not have done this without you.” Gloria Yuen, Head of Regulatory Enablement at NAB.

“I highly recommend Koon – she is an effective and accomplished leader, coach, and contributor. In Koon you’ll find two key elements. Koon understands business, leadership and relationships deeply, both from an “inside” perspective (ie, knows how the system works), and from an “outside” perspective (how to look at the system through different eyes to challenge your thinking on situations). Becoming part of Koon’s community is rich and valuable.” Daintree Peters, CEO of Assembler.

Koon understands how large, complex organisations work. She challenged my thinking at a practical level and weaved strategies, communication effectiveness and personal aspirations into our coaching sessions.” – Eva Chye, Director at PwC
