As we welcome on board our new VP Membership, here's a quick introduction of Linda Sim :-

Linda Sim - VP Membership

One of my favourite quotes, by Lao Tzu, ancient Chinese philosopher & writer, is…

‘Knowing others is wisdom. Knowing yourself is enlightenment’.

The reason I love this quote so much is that it helps to form the foundation of my coaching relationships. I believe that having self-awareness is the key to living the life you want, achieving the goals you set, and creating the relationships required to get there.

Born and brought up in Hong Kong, I have 24 years’ experience in coaching, training and facilitating across Sales & Marketing, eCommerce and Loyalty on 4 continents, encompassing a 20-year corporate career with Cathay Pacific, and overseeing their loyalty programme and membership.

I have always had a love for my customers and a strong desire to help them achieve what’s important and makes them happy. With this in mind, and working closely with the HKICC family, I hope to contribute towards what you need, want and value in the membership space. All ideas are appreciated, so please feel free to share with us! Together let’s STRIVE forward...


It’s a pleasure to be part of the HKICC team, and I am grateful for the opportunity of collaborating with you all, and look forward to serving you as best I can.

Our first Coach Development Program in 2020

A full house at HKICC’s first Coach Development Program in 2020! Thank you Coach  Katerina Kirillova-Stanley’s insightful sharing on Metaphorical Associative card (MAC), a tool which has been adopted by psychotherapists to work within coachees’ emotional, mental and physical spheres creating a free, secure and non judgemental environment.
Participants got to understand the theoretical foundation of MAC and were given practical algorithms of the cards for their self transformation.
Also welcome our 5 new members!

It was a great kick off event for #hkicc on Jan 16 with 21 coaches actively participated. Applying the magic of  Metaphorical associative cards, coaches found the coaching sessions more fruitfully deep diving to reflect inner voice of clients thoughts. The theme of self managing at the beginning of the year trigger coaches to empower themselves for new beliefs and actions. 
Coming on Feb 22 will be learning to  disrupt ourselves and March 19 embracing self care.
Please come and join us. Don't miss the chance to transform to where you want to be.

Interim President's Message April 2019

Dear members and friends,

I cannot believe it’s already April and the second quarter of 2019. We at HKICC has been taking on the challenges of creating a more relevant and sustainable community for you. I am happy to report that we have made encouraging progress and anticipating lots more to come.

 As President who serves the International Coaching Community in Hong Kong, I feel very strongly about the importance of having a strong and supportive community, as I and my fellow coaches would agree, that we would not be where we are without the support of each other, learning and having fun together, and most importantly the help we get when we face challenges, picking us up to do better all over again.
That’s why we started hosting the Coaches’ Roundtable in February this year for both experienced and novice coaches to share wisdom on a different coaching topic. We have also initiated a Coaching Lab from late March for new Cantonese speaking coaches to support them in their coaching journey. Last but not least, the very popular Let it Shine Series has been enhanced and will be brought back in May this year for those who have learned coaching skills and are looking to learn how to start their coaching careers and businesses.
There’s more:

  • The First HKICC Coaching Symposium “Deep Immersion into the Sea of Coaching” which will take place on April 27, 2019, will bring three wonderful speakers to share with you their coaching specialties.  This will take the place of both the monthly Coach Development for the month and the Spring party we announced earlier. Please see our separate email for details. We are looking for a number of volunteers to help us lead this event better so please contact Selina Wong at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We welcome and appreciate your participation. 
  • Riding on the success of our first Outreach programme for 2019, Stanley Chiu, VP of Public Relations, has secured a very worthwhile pro-bono coaching programme with the Golden Bauhinia Women Entrepreneur Association (GBWEA), coaching their members who mentor underprivileged female university students. We have just met for orientation on April 3. 
  • To better understand your needs so we may serve you better, we will be sending you a survey soliciting your input. Please look out for it and be generous with your suggestions. 
  • The HKICC Annual General Meeting (AGM) is scheduled for May 2019 and we are very excited about the special speaker we have invited. More details will be available soon. 
  • Further ahead, we are thrilled to be joining forces with the International Association of Facilitators (IAF) and the International Association of Coaching (IAC) in late October to bring you a facilitated dialogue regarding the future of learning and development including coaching.

Now a call for help: to effectively execute these activities, we need more hands than the board members and VPs who work tirelessly to build this community for you. Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you can spare your time to help build the coaching community:

  • project volunteers for the symposium on April 27 (Sat)
  • membership liaison
  • social media and engagement
  • project management

Please join us in putting our initiatives to work for you, our members and community, learning and growing together.
Starting from this president message we would also like to showcase one of our board members or VPs every time. Our first feature will be on Elsa Tang, our Treasurer and much more:

Interim President's Message Dec 2018


Dear HKICC members and friends,

Looking at the simmering harbour while writing this on a lazy Saturday afternoon, I feel blessed and thankful for this rare moment of peace and tranquillity as we approach the end of 2018, a memorable and eventful year for me. I am very honoured to be the interim President of the HKICC, excited to be married to Vanessa in May, and to top it all off, am expecting a new family member in the coming few months.

As I start thinking about how to get ready for our little one, we at HKICC is also busy thinking about the changes and refinements we need to make to better serve you our members. Trailing on the success of our cosy and warm Christmas Party a few weeks ago (many thanks go to Noor in co-ordinating this, who sadly will be stepping out as VP of Strategic Planning to concentrate on developing her business) , we are planning a first-ever Chinese New Year gathering (tentatively on the evening of Thursday, 21 February 2019 so please mark your calendar) to welcome the Year of the Pig with exciting new initiatives for new and experienced coaches:

  • We will organize the third Let it Shine series, as well as a coaching support group The Coaching Lab for new(er) coaches.
  • Angela Spaxman, first President at HKICC, will lead a HKICC Coach’s Roundtable series for more experienced coaches to share experience, ask questions, and support each other.
  • We will start the latest Community Outreach Project with KELY, a non-governmental organisation which aims to provide support to youths between the ages of 14 to 24. We have to thank our member Eileen Tong as the brilliant project lead and also our past president Carole Lewis who will serve as mentor coach to our coaches
  • Stanley Chiu, newly appointed VP of External Affairs, is committed to promoting coaching amongst different professional and business communities in Hong Kong
  • Additional new and renewed initiatives will include refining Membership Benefits to attract and support coaches

With our many initiatives we are continually looking for passionate and proactive members to be either project leads or VPs to help us better serve your community.  If you are interested or have any suggestions please do let us know.

I look forward to a fruitful year ahead at HKICC, and I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and a healthy, rewarding New Year.


Nicholas Wai
Interim President, HKICC

Ps: join us in advocating professional coaching!
