Yvonne listened to my needs closely and customized a program that helped me understand how to use technology much more efficiently in my role as a project manager.  

I highly recommend Yvonne. She is an excellent teacher and her extensive business and technology experience makes her an excellent coach for any professional.

Yvonne is a highly creative, efficient and reliable communication trainer and facilitator you do not want to miss out on.


Yvonne shows great passion for her work, will go the extra mile and always thinks ahead. Having had Yvonne as a guest lecturer in my seminar class was a great win for all R+students entrusted to me.

Yvonne's skills and knowledge enhanced my content and delivery style, especially since it’s much more difficult to ‘read the room’ remotely. The way she handled technical difficulties seamlessly during the course put me at ease.

I’ll be looking for other opportunities to work with her. Please put me on the list of “Very Satisfied Clients.” Thank you for our partnership.

Yvonne is a professional coach with truly global mind. From the time I asked her advice on my challenge to get my Executive MBA abroad, she worked with me through the application process until I passed the entrance exam. While many people would say that my challenge was reckless, she was totally different.

She gave me confidence for my MBA journey, helping me to find out exactly what my strengths and appeal points were. In particular, she helped me recognize how my experiences, even those that I thought were of little significance, were tied to my current career as a professional. This is possible because of her diverse and global background and work experience.

Especially she is excellent sublating Japanese mindset to a global one, with enough knowledgeable and understanding about Japanese people and their unique expressions and ways of thinking.

She is also highly proficient in Japanese and good listener, so I can confidently recommend her as a coach not only for global business persons, but also for Japanese who are not confident in their English skills or for beginners who want to be active globally in the future.

She will surely lead you to become a global leader.
