Hartwell Buck has partnered with Michelle Comrie to offer tailored Executive Coaching services to support the professionals we work with to transition confidently between roles or to successfully navigate career path choices.

Originally from Zimbabwe, Michelle brings over 20 years in international business into play in her Coaching, with 15 + of those focused on the APAC from bases in Hong Kong, Singapore and China. Working with her 1:1 will be an engaging and experiential process – she works best with accomplished individuals who have been primarily ‘task driven’ in their careers to date. Michelle has an insatiable curiosity to help provoke people beyond their traditional thinking. This reveals underlying assumptions and missing viewpoints that can block innovative solutions. Our clients attribute the quick-fire success they have attained from working with her to her skilful instinct to draw out the true core of what is restricting performance, and how she uses positive psychology to build confidence and empower change with excitement, accountability and 100% commitment.

Michelle is a Professional Certificated Executive Coach (ICF PCC), is Hong Kong’s first mBit Coach and Trainer, and proudly stands as a Mentor for Women Leaders as part of The Women’s Foundation, Hong Kong. She is Behavioural Assessment & Observational Skills certified, and a CABI™certified Resilience Coach. The CABI™ Leadership Impact Model is a research-based resilience framework which has enabled 5,000 + Asia-based global professionals to discover their unique leadership voice regardless of culture and personality type.
Michelle is also the Founder and architect of an exciting CSR Coaching/Mentoring initiative called “Bold New Horizons.” This is a vibrant partnership with The Akilah Institute, which, as East Africa’s pre-eminent higher education institution for women, is educating female leaders to solve the world’s most pressing challenges.
