intrapreneurial journey was truly exciting because I was given an opportunity to
create great lasting innovative
value for the entire Asia-Pacific region. I left the UN job many years ago,
yet many beneficiaries of my intrapreneurial work keep using my inspirational,
educational and training materials on
business incubation and international
technology-based business cooperation developed during that period.

embark on a greater
journey of a world-changing venturepreneur. Shortly after leaving the UN job

Inspirational Business e-Coach.

all over the world to become more creative and innopreneurial. I received
of THANK-YOU notes during the launch year that encouraged me to keep making
the e-Coach bigger and better continuously.
