I worked with Trang during a transition of my firm from the owner manager (who was CEO) to myself (now CEO). During this time I was also preparing the business for sale (to PE). Trang had pragmatic approach, and really understood the challenges a business like mine was facing. I really enjoyed working with Trang. Our sessions and time together were always extremely productive, but also fun.

Chief Executive Officer, Portfolio Company

I found working with Trang to be extremely beneficial both professionally and personally while at the same time very enjoyable. What really came across strongly in our coaching sessions was her insight and experience of dealing with the challenges I was facing which meant I was very confident in the strategies developed to overcome them. I couldn't recommend her highly enough as a coach.

C-Level Executive, Director, Group Executive Committee

Trang has an amazing ability to see the bigger picture, ask those deep, empowering questions, and dive directly into the heart of the matter. She has incredible intuition, and masterfully led me during our work together to a place of greater clarity and higher vision – both with respect to who I am as a person and who I am as a CEO.

Founder & CEO, Private Company

Trang does not indulge you. She provided the right balance of tough love and support to help me make the changes I needed in order to be a better and more effective professional. Sessions with Trang felt like working with a trusted colleague.

Partner, Private Equity

Trang was able to accurately pick the areas I needed to focus on to increase my personal and professional effectiveness. She was able to tailor her input to my personal situation which I found very helpful. She contributed to a step-change in my level of awareness and impact. She is thoughtful, a good listener, aware, and direct. I would recommend her highly.

Director, Private Equity

I really appreciated your honesty and integrity. You pushed me to make me improve. You did not tell me what I wanted to hear but instead you looked to unlock all my issues to make me a better manager. The sessions were though provoking, well constructed and had a clear goal.

Managing Director, Global Investment Bank

During our sessions Trang helped me see a broader range of perspectives, reflect on my decision making process and potentially include other possibilities to reach a more productive outcome on a team level. From the start, Trang perfectly married real work situations with my personal attributes leading to a much higher level of awarenness. This allowed me to effectively influence and collaborate with stakeholders at the executive level more effectively.

Managing Director, Global Investment Bank

Coaching with Trang at any time would have been valuable. As it coincided with me assuming and transitioning to a new role, it was priceless.

I chose Trang as my coach because of her ability to listen, probe the key points, and adapt her approach to the point at hand, all done with energy and enthusiasm. This meant that we could spend the time focused on honing my skills and reviewing changes I had made between sessions.

I would thoroughly recommend Trang to anyone.

Director, Africa Regional Head of Tax, Global Investment Bank

I invited Trang to speak to a group of female entrepreneurs at C. Hoare & Co. over breakfast. She was incredibly inspiring and engaging, and drew many interesting stories from the audience as well as sharing some of her own experiences along the way. Trang has a very clear and succinct style, is able to pose the right questions and has a thorough understanding of the challenges facing executives and owners of businesses at every stage.

Portfolio Manager, C. Hoare & Co

Trang's coaching sessions were a valuable tool in my progression to the next career level

Managing Director, Head of Legal EMEA, Global Private Bank

Working with Trang has been incredible. With each session, she gave me the insight and tools to break through internal barriers that have held me back. Not only has she helped me professionally, she has also increased my happiness personally. It has been a transformative experience.

Partner, Magic Circle Law Firm

Thank you very much for the coaching. Discussing my thoughts with you was extremely helpful to understand the power of effective client relationship management and to find my own and authentic way of handling clients. I would be grateful if we could work together again in the future.

Partner, Magic Circle Law Firm

From the first day we spoke I found our discussion useful. As the sessions went on I learned more about myself and at times what I learned was eye-opening. You were a great listener. I was candid in my views but you did not judge me. Instead, you challenged me to see other perspectives.

Partner, Magic Circle Law Firm

Thanks so much for all the support and guidance you have given me through the partnership selection process. I am not able to do this without having you in the picture.

Partner, Magic Circle Law Firm

"Again, thank you very much for your help. I particularly appreciate your perception and ability to guide me, through a few thought provoking questions, to the answers I’ve been looking for. Your background and direct experience with some of the issues I’ve been encountering was also invaluable – from the start I could see that you understood where I was coming from. You’ve helped me reinvigorate my passion for my career"

Partner, Hong Kong, Magic Circle Firm

Working with Trang has helped me to become a more rounded professional. She used her own experiences and knowledge to assist me to enhance important people and teamwork skills, but allowed me to do so in my own way and in a manner that allowed me to retain my own personality. She listens to what I have to say and creates bespoke sessions based on issues I am facing, or specific areas I would like to work on.

Lawyer, Magic Circle Law Firm

Trang has helped me to identity and overcome my internal barriers. She has given me the tools to tackle the professional and personal challenges that I was facing. My mindset has really changed after working with her. She is an amazing coach I would highly recommend her.

Partner, Hong Kong, Magic Circle Firm

Trang is a great coach. I hope to continue working with her as she listens well and brings out new ideas and reflections in me.

Partner, Luxembourg, Magic Circle Law Firm

I know it's unbelievable but, against all the odds, I've been made Regional Managing Partner of Europe! I really want to thank you – you supported and believed in me from day one.

Regional Managing Partner Europe, Magic Circle Law Firm

Trang is a fantastic coach and I feel privileged to have worked with her. Given her very senior banking experience, she really understands the environment we operate in and the challenges we face. She is very supportive and empathetic, but also probing. Trang really challenged me to address and confront my development needs, but also to recognise and believe in my strengths. She equipped me with practical tools that I can use in preparation for difficult situations but also day to day, and I feel far more confident and empowered as a result. The difference in my confidence is clear, and has been commented on by a number of colleagues. It has also been reflected in my business results, which is testament to Trang's work. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Trang as an executive coach and have benefitted greatly from her intuitive and strategic advice and support.

Counsel, Magic Circle Law Firm

Trang is a great coach for me – I feel I am already making progress. She is very charismatic and has a deep understanding of the issues I am facing. She challenges me appropriately when and where necessary.

Partner, Moscow, Magic Circle Law Firm

Your coaching and insights were most appreciated by the students. Teams immediately processed your feedback and discussed how to improve their venture.

Director of Academic Support, Global New Venture Challenge, University of Chicago Booth School of Business

A huge thank you for the time, diligence and care you give to me during these last few months. You challenged me again and again on the points that were raised and helped me to look beyond the words. You teased me to tickle out the next level in the evolution of our discussion. On top of all that, the experience was pleasant. I hope we have an opportunity to work together again.

Partner, Head of Real Estate Practice, Magic Circle Firm.
