" 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.
