WHAT PEOPLE SAY
" Wendy Wong is an excellent coach. In the subtlest way she drove me to look at myself retrospectively, to tap on my strengths to see if it matches what I am actually seeking for. She guided me towards creating a matrix that would address my needs and desires against my strengths, traits and capability. She also ushered me into a reality check which made lots of sense to me in making my career choices. A coach like her can make a meaningful difference in helping you make the right choices for yourself!"
S. Periasamy, General Manager o MCEF Malaysia
" Wendy is very focused on what she does. What I like about her approach is that she exceeds expected outcomes through a process that encourages clarification and builds alignment. She is very competent & engages stakeholders well. She also uses her coaching skills to get autonomy & accountability. Once she accepts an assignment, she is 100% committed.
That's the reason when Wendy accepted the role as Chairman the International Coaching Week 2019 (ICW 2019), it was the MOST SUCCESSFUL ever breaking new grounds and milestones.
This is one of the major reasons ICF Malaysia, FIRST-TIME IN 18 YEARS, was globally awarded an HONOREE in ICF Chapter Recognition event held on 28 Oct 2020!
As the ICF President (2108-2020), I am delighted with this outcome and I would not hesitate to recommend Wendy’s services. Her work ethics and quality is outstanding."
Jeff Cheah, President of the International Coaching Federation, Malaysia
"Holistic leadership development is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about Coach Wendy. I have had the pleasure of knowing Wendy in Dec 2019. I was impressed with Wendy's ability to formulate forward-thinking strategies and planning. And of course, her optimism.
If you are looking for a coach who can effectively support your growth acceleration, I highly recommend Coach Wendy."
A. Murukesvan, Chief Representative Handelsbanken Kuala Lumpur Representative Office.
" Wendy’s executive coaching focuses on effective ways to communicate individual values and the contribution to leadership. Through the process one can no longer be apolitical. Wendy creates and nurtures the confidence with others in the organization to solve long and short range challenges. If you ever wondered why you are not receiving due recognition for your work and value to the company, reach out to Wendy. I have nothing but admiration for her sincere work and achievements."

"Wendy is my coach from a peer coaching programme. Knowing Wendy's years of experience in leadership position from global enterprises, I look to her as my sounding board for both business and personal development related issues. As her coachee and a fellow coach, I must say that Wendy is definitely one of the finest coaches I have ever come across. There is an incredible calming quality about Wendy, which I believe comes from her inscrutable ability to listen deeply, so deeply she is able get you grounded instead of fluttering about. And from there, she would draw out key insights and perspectives that many coaches would have overlooked. Wendy is definitely a rising star and a force to be reckoned with in the coaching world. I would recommend Wendy anytime."
