YPO member

Past CEO YPO and Coaching International


Catherine, virtually single handedly, created, designed, and launched the YPO Mentorship program and not only delivered the initial trainings but ensured that execution and improvements were established and followed through on.


She has a warm yet professional manner and is highly organized and diligent in everything she does. Her evolved self-awareness and high EQ stand out for me as the key behaviors behind her success. Catherine also takes responsibility, confidentiality and integrity very seriously.


In my role as President and COO of YPO, we worked closely for many years and I could always count on Catherine to shoot me straight and provide sound and strategic advice from her own extensive business, YPO and personal experience. In a word she was exceptional to work with. I developed a deep personal regard for Catherine over those many years.

YPO Dubai Integrated

I had the honor of serving with Catherine on the International Learning Committee of YPO between 2016 and 2018, where she was oversighting and strategically guiding the roll out of Mentoring across the organization. Her passion and drive for YPO and mentoring are still examples that I share with incoming members about servant leadership delivering rewards to both our community as well as those who take on leadership roles.


During our time on the learning committee, we engaged in numerous forum style activities, and I always found Catherine to be present, authentic and willing to share her experiences for the whole group to benefit.


Her great success in business, raising two wonderful young ladies who have followed in their mothers’ entrepreneurial shoes and her ability to find a life balance where her and her husband spend months at sea indulging their passion for sailing speak volumes of the credibility, diversity and gifts of wisdom that she would be able to share with fellow YPO members. That she is already a highly revered mentoring facilitator only goes further in demonstrating how her magnetic personality would extend to and benefit many forums. 


Of course, with all these positive attributes, there must be something that would make her a better candidate, and I think that if we could clone Catherine and have someone like her in each region that would be the improvement that I would seek.

YPO Singapore International Board of Directors 2017–2020

International Vice Chairman 2019/2020


I came to know Catherine through our service together on the International Networks Committee and then the International Education Committee (as the Learning committee then was). I subsequently had the privilege of leading Catherine when I served as the Chair of the Learning Committee. Catherine’s willingness to serve on these International Committees reflects a very strong desire to broaden her experience beyond her Chapter and Region, and too be of service to our Members and the YPO Organization. Throughout the time I worked with Catherine, I found her to be passionate about YPO and its ability to make a positive contribution to our members’ lives. She honours her commitments, and was tireless and inspirational in the work and effort she put in to serve our Members.


She’s very personable, open, authentic, willing to be vulnerable and also frank and honest in a positive and respectful way.

Catherine conducted another fantastic Mentoring Masterclass, this time for a customer Merck Applied Solutions. The challenge was to condense it into 45 minutes and she did that so eloquently.
