Sam C Lim

CEO, Francorp Philippines

Jen is able to bring out the best in me and therefore in my team. Her depth of knowledge when it comes to business is complemented by her approachable and patient demeanor. While she often has ideas on how to solve problems, she takes the time to discuss, assess and bring out new ideas to create new possibilities. She does not hesitate to give direct feedback, but delivers it in such a way that inspires correcting and improving issues. Having worked with her in Shanghai and Tokyo, Jen is able to navigate the different intricacies of cultural dynamics and knows the importance of getting the job done, while managing and improving relationships.

She sees things no one else sees and is quickly able to zero in on the detailed actions needed for improvement. If you want support to improve yourself, your team, or your overall business strategy and execution, she is your go-to person!
