In Summary, I would say that it has been an extremely positive experience working with Paul. He has great expertise in this area which he has kindly shared willingly. He is a calming influence in the turbulent early period to provide reassurance and allowed me to have the confidence to go straight back into the market. Would highly recommend Paul for future assignments!

Working with Paul is always enjoyable since you can always find his insights in various subjects when we started our conversations. You can get different perspectives from his words of which you have not thought of before.
There is always no pressure unlike some other consultants you met before. The meetings are always conducted in a way that is helpful to the situation you are facing.
First of all, the “plan B” concept that Paul raised is inspiring. For a person who worked a corporate life for his entire career had never thought of plan B or plan C. We are always so deeply involved and devoted to the corporate life leaving us little time to even thought about other options. B and/or C plans can be some other things that you treasure in your life that will need time to cultivate. Paul is giving us a life consulting opportunity to pursue what we really want to do, esp. right after our corporate engagement when you felt confused with no plan nor direction on where to go or what to do next. His help is grateful not only giving you hints but also comfort your minds as life is much more than what we usually do within a corporate environment.
The assistance of getting a proper CV written and a review on what we have done and achieved is really helpful. The tools given to us on exploring/knowing what we actually want to do really help to shape the next action plan effectively for us.
Making the next career with what we are good at and what we are fond of is exciting to pursue. I had never thought of trying to pursue a part time career in golfing, a sport that I love, but that idea is striking to me. This is plan B that I will work on later.
The coaching that Paul had given to me is giving me a chance to look at life differently on top of just thinking about the working career. We could be able to develop much more options for ourselves which make life more colorful and enjoyable.
Thank you Paul for your help !

I had the chance to meet Paul with whom I spent 10 sessions that changed my life. I remember my first session when I wanted to complain and describe all the things that bothered me. He didn't react to that, but focused on the future and wanted to know what I need. Then, he taught me how to find solution without wasting valuable time on analysing problems. I very quickly understood, how I can resolve conflicts in a very constructive way. I managed to influence others and get what I needed. In addition, he taught me to judge what's worth fighting for and what's rather unimportant. It helped me to increase my efficiency and focus on the issues I needed to tackle to have most impact.
The tools he gave me, work in many situations and now I know how to act and behave. I don't need to talk to him directly anymore. I know how to solve conflicts in a very constructive way. I learned how to influenced others and how to convince them in a way what I needed.
I recommend to do life coaching with Paul. I learned that in fact I have numerous opportunities and alternatives. His concept of plan B is very convincing and gives me a lot of strength and self confidence. This helps me to perform better in my work life.
Paul is very authentic and convincing. Thanks to his long experience he has an excellent understanding of the mechanisms of big companies and knowledge what's needed in that jungle. He lives what he teaches and I am glad that I still have regular contact with him.

When you need coaching you don't want a junior consultant to learn his job by coaching you, you want the experienced coach to have time for you and to use his/her gift and know-how for your benefit instead. There are big coaching firms around, which are reputable, have a worldwide presence and have refined very useful tools - but it's likely that the senior partner will have little time for you and you will end up spending most of the time with a junior consultant.
Paul Heng's coaching precisely avoids this problem. He is surprisingly available (almost 24/7) and, while the tools are there (and they are certainly very useful), it is time spent with him that brings outstanding value; Paul's unique profile combines both experience in human resource and coaching and a personal journey where he had to make some defining decisions. Paul is comfortable with both Western and Asian cultures, and he also knows how MNC's function and manage people. All along it isn't about Paul Heng but about you, and that's why it is so valuable.

Working with Paul Heng has certainly been a value-add for me, not only directing to find the good and right job, but also giving me broader perspectives in many aspects, more than just about career. I would say the coaching and direction from Paul has brought a lot of valuable points to sharpen my skill capability to be highlighted, broaden the mindset, sharing ideas and values, building confidence and helping me make a focus on job search. After putting all the efforts, patience, prayers and help form Paul, I am accepting a job offer, among several leads. By this note I would like to say big thanks to Paul Heng - for your great contribution during the latest couple of months providing your best advice and counselling support.

The program was great , but the people made all the difference. I was made to feel at home in Singapore, the people at Next Career were my first friends in Singapore – they supported me all through, much after the program ended, they continue to support me even now. They offer much more than career transition – their empathy is genuine, they can feel my pain and enjoy my rewards .Clement and Paul have been the best friends I could have had.
