"Your facilitation business (and busy-ness) is fully integrated with your life.”
My conversation this week is with Uyen Vo from Fierce Consulting.
I LOVE THE WAY Uyen sees the world, considers things, and ultimately - operates.
She thinks about things in an analytical way - though, not in a black and white way, I find her reflections are shared in a very playful analytical way!
Uyen shows people how to get more done, save resources, and reduce employee burnout. She does this through delivering engaging workshops on project management, personal effectiveness and leadership.
You’ll hear Uyen's analytical prowess and some great phrases she uses in this conversation to reflect on work and life.
After graduating from the University of Cambridge with a BA Hons in Economics, Uyen Vo joined Lloyds Banking Group in the City of London.
Needing a change from all those spreadsheets, she made a sideways move into people development. Since then, she’s been blessed with a really varied career, including corporate social responsibility and technical consulting, and she’s a facilitator, consultant and entrepreneur as the founder of Fierce Consulting.
In this episode, you will learn
- How Uyen deliberately planned her career transition, including weighing up the financial risks associated with going out on her own
- How Uyen landed on her powerful value proposition
- How she re-oriented her time marketing her business from a scattergun approach, to a relationship-centred approach
- Some of the economic concepts she uses to weigh up her decisions (including opportunity cost and utility)
