Jimmy W.

Optimistic and Knowledgeable Senior Sales and Business Development Manager

All started off from a casual chat with my lovely neighbour at the beginning, Richard was recommended to me when I desperately needed career advice and support last year.One of Richard's greatest strengths is his person-to-person strategy. He can quickly understand a person's strengths and weaknesses, providing an effective and productive formula for him/her to tackle challenges upon various stages of encounter. I also appreciate the encouragement and motivation Richard gave me on how to tactically & tactfully demonstrate my skills to others while at the same time, reminding me of certain weaknesses of myself that could be appreciated as positive attributes in some situations.Though my coaching sessions have not come to an end yet, I have already learned a lot and have become more aware of the increasing importance of building social networks from a broad scope of people with different indu backgrounds. I am sure I can continuously learn from him and others through their advice and ideas.
