Working with clients across Asia-Pacific
Vanessa Lee is a core member of the Cirrus team in Asia-Pacific. She is highly valued by clients for her expertise, extensive leadership and consulting experience, and her ability to engage and enthuse people across different organisations, geographies and cultures.

“Her facilitation style connects and motivates participants to think outside the box,” says one client.  “The experience and the business examples she shares makes programmes alive, enjoyable and memorable.”

Vanessa has over 20 years of multinational corporate experience, working as a senior executive overseeing leadership and talent development for major global companies including Coca-Cola. As a consultant, she has implemented global leadership development programmes for clients including Aetna, American Express, BlackRock, Danone, DBS (Development Bank of Singapore), Deutsche Bank, HSBC, Johnson & Johnson, Kimberly-Clark, Novartis, Standard Chartered Bank, Walmart and SAP. This breadth of corporate experience enables her to connect with leaders at all levels in diverse cultures and to draw on a range of real-life business examples to inspire behavioural change.

“I am passionate about my job,” says Vanessa. “Because of my own multi-country, multi-industry leadership experience, I understand the challenges of delivering top performance while facing the uncertainty of emerging markets.”

Her leadership development expertise encompasses connected leadership, situational leadership, performance management, emotional intelligence and diversity.

An expert coach, Vanessa is accredited by the International Coach Federation and has coached hundreds of leaders across Australia, China, Hong Kong, India, Indonesia, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, Papau New Guinea, Philippines, Singapore, Taiwan, Thailand and Vietnam.

One recent coaching client values the impact she has had across an entire senior leadership team: “Vanessa’s coaching has been proved to be very effective. I can see that my team has become more creative, self-empowered and resilient in problem solving.  Moreover, having my whole leadership team going through executive coaching with Vanessa helps to create a strong sense of team spirit as they are having a powerful experience altogether.”

Vanessa is fluent in Cantonese, Mandarin and English. She has an MBA from the University of Hull in the UK and a BA from The Chinese University in Hong Kong.

“I enjoy working at Cirrus because of the energy and collaboration,” says Vanessa. “The diverse, cross cultural and cross generational mix of Cirrus talent is an excellent mirroring of our clients around the world. We walk the talk of creating an inclusive workforce to maximize the contributions of the talent pool in the organisation. Being an international company, we have the benefits of leveraging best practices across continents to offer the best solutions to meet client needs.”
