Danny Chun

Devika has helped me a lot, not only on how to be more confident on the business side but also on spiritually. She has helped me be socially accepting of myself and others. She pays attention to details, giving me space to talk, present my problems, and I come back having a different lens through which I look at the same issue. There were lots of warmth, inspiration, along with directions of guidance, while I was encouraged to solve my problem in my way. As it is my own battle, I must fight it myself, while she was on my side to help me remove some of the distractions, and boost my confidence.

Her vast experience working with women and corporate professionals really added to helping me develop in a professional setting as well as in my personal life.

Fanny Cheng

Executive Chairman
Medeli Electronics Co. Ltd.

One of Devika’s writing on Forbes about female leadership grasped my attention so I decided to reach out to her, which resulted in the beginning of a fruitful coach-mentee relationship.

During the year we worked together, She spent time listening to my childhood experience and walked me through how the most subtle experience shaped me to become who I am today. She is a great listener and she asks the right questions to help me gain a deeper understanding of myself. She has a gift to develop connection with people and it is with this connection that I managed to trust her in a short time. This trust is essential to our relationship as she could only give me meaningful guidance only if I allowed her into my world. I have become more attuned to my emotions, allowing me to be more centered as the chair of the business. I am very pleased with the result of the work we put in together. I am sure she would be a great coach to anyone who is interested in the journey of self discovery and awareness.
