About this event

With the huge amount of uncertainty brought by COVID-19, people are finding it difficult to be resolute about one's decision, especially in the domains of career and life. "Should I start my own business? Pursue MBA? Join a start-up? Relocate to another country? Wind down the business?"

Today's professionals are trained to be hyper-analytical and rational in business decision-making. This is a core competency enabling us to thrive in the business world. However, when applied in the personal domain with the increasing uncertainty, we often experience stress or even fall into an "Analysis-Paralysis" state.

Please join Yolanda Yu, a serial entrepreneur, a coach and a mother, to hear her perspectives on making resolute decisions in career and life. Yolanda will also take us through her journey of vulnerabilities and determination during her transition from a successful corporate career to entrepreneurship while juggling with her personal life.

Yolanda Yu

Founder, RePerspective Coaching

Yolanda is an Executive and Career Coach. Based in Singapore, Yolanda coaches start-up CEOs and senior and emerging leaders in MNCs such as Amazon, Google, Shopee, Grab, and McKinsey from around the world.

In her 20 years of professional experience, Yolanda served various leadership positions in Mastercard, Visa, Lazada-Alibaba, and helloPay, a Fintech start-up, in APAC Emerging markets. A highly regarded professional recruiter in her earlier career, Yolanda was also an HR solution consultant and a start-up owner.

Her winding career journey was a history of relentless pursuit, full of confusion, self-doubt, and at times self-induced misery. The paradigm shift happened when the quest changed from “How can I succeed” to “What do I deeply resonate with”. The real answer was allowed to surface only when the real question emerged. From there, Yolanda founded RePerspective Coaching to help uncover new perspectives for Leadership and Career Development, drawing on her diverse business and HR experiences. Using an integral approach, Yolanda coaches “the whole person”, helping executives grow awareness, increase resilience, manifest positivity, and expand leadership capacity.

Yolanda holds an MBA from INSEAD and a Bachelor of Computing from NUS, as the youngest Ministry of Education scholar to enter university at age 15. Yolanda mentors and advises several start-ups. She returns to INSEAD as a judge and regular speaker at EMBA and MBA classes. Yolanda is also a multi-award-winning author, published in renowned magazines and journals such as New York Times Travel and Char Journal. Her book was shortlisted for Singapore Literature Award 2020. Yolanda is also co-organizer of the Global Migrant Festival, an international platform giving voices to the migrant community.
