Live life like it is your last day!

I am a social and emotional intelligence coach and facilitator who helps professionals develop their leadership skills. I am passionate about building cross-generational collaboration and innovating education.

I have started a social endeavour, Yes Everyone Matters (YesEM), with a vision to create an enabling environment where every professional gives an extra mile for the work that they do and where they are respected and valued regardless of their profession, position, age, gender or appearance. Facilitation and leadership are two key approaches I use to fuel the ripple for YesEM. 

I have a strong background in leading change in the water, gender equity and tourism sectors. I am a Collaborating Partner of TransformationFirst.Asia Pte Ltd and the developer and facilitator of the Emerging Water Professionals Program of the International RiverFoundation in Australia. I have worked with Melbourne Water, OXFAM, Australian AID, UN International Labour Organisation, Global Water Partnership, and Engineers Without Borders. 

I serve on the Alliance for Water Stewardship Board of Directors as the Deputy Chair. Alliance for Water Stewardship is a global network dedicated to advancing and deepening the impact of credible water stewardship. Through our collaborative work we inspire water users and managers to be responsible stewards of our freshwater resources.

Being a highly enthusiastic and motivated facilitator, who brings out the creativity from individuals and lifts up the energy in the room, is what I am known for.


And yes I used to be a tutor at the University of Newcastle, a tour guide, a waitress, an op-shop store assistant and a TV host :).

"With uncommon enthusiasm, Vanh makes serious work fun. She brings a deliberate focus on how to draw out more intelligence, creativity, and imagination from groups. Her ability to match methods or structures to the purpose-at-hand is refined - trust her to help you figure out an inventive way to get at your goal while including and respecting each person's contribution. Her agility in moving between groups/cultures is impressive. Trust her with your people/situation and you'll emerge on the other side better for the experience she'll design".
