What our clients say
I worked with Bernard when we were both at a multinational corporation that provides information management services in over 23 countries. Bernard was then our Asia Regional HR Leader and I was the General Manager for Malaysia. He and I worked very closely in developing and nurturing a young and passionate team. I was able to leverage several skill sets which Bernard possessed; namely his ability to put together a learning program based on the business needs. He is also an excellent facilitator/trainer who is able to articulate and explain complex concepts well and very good in engaging the wider audience. Most importantly, he was very business savvy and was able to contribute greatly in helping me develop a strong people strategy aligned to what I had wanted my business to achieve.
I had the opportunity to work with Bernard again after a long hiatus when Bernard started his independent consulting business (Invigorate Consulting) in 2019. I had engaged Bernard yet again to help me develop a strong people strategy geared towards building a much stronger leadership pipeline to protect the business future. He helped me to develop several leadership programs aimed at developing my high potentials further. He also coached my leadership team as a group and was very effective in drawing out meaningful insights from my leaders.
I would definitely welcome another opportunity to work with Bernard again in the future.

I am pleased to be able to recommend Bernard and his company Invigorate Consulting. Bernard is an empathetic person who is able to understand client needs and priorities; knows how to plan and structure assignments to meet client needs.
I was most impressed with Invigorate Consulting for their training delivery that they were able to facilitate a topic such as "Coaching for Performance" in a simple and understandable manner that multiple audiences could grasp and digest. Our front line managers were able to take both theoretical and practical techniques from the learning and integrate them into their daily practice. We have seen very good development from line managers in their management of teams and they have grown in confidence as a result. Thank you Bernard, for supporting us in our progress towards our goal of becoming a high performing organisation.

Having known Bernard as a colleague, I have benefited from the many workshops he ran for our Management Team, where he was the Chief Facilitator. Sessions he facilitated impels everyone to contribute as he stirs-up a different angle of thought and perspective; which is often needed when looking at business challenges. More recently my Team leveraged on Bernard’s facilitation skills again as we learned how to reflect and journal in order to think and act differently in a season like this. I witnessed those who participated openly have benefited in their own personal development.

Engaging Bernard has been a worthwhile investment for our SME organisation as his expertise and years of experience is extremely resourceful. Through many intensive hours of discussion, brainstorming and the implementation of effective strategies, a number of the HR challenges we have been facing have been resolved! Bernard is easy to work with, very reliable and provides ongoing support and followup to ensure continuity!

The series of sessions have given me a chance to witness Bernard taking coaching and sharing to another level amidst the Movement Control Order that we are in now. The virtual sessions have again proven that coaching is not only limited to only face-to-face but it can happen in many forms of communication. Aside from the effective sessions, Bernard left an impressive impression with my team and best of all the team remembers and puts into practice what was shared and discussed.
LEAD Through Crisis sessions if were to be summed in one word it will be REJUVENATING. These sessions have revived tips and knowledge that we know but have been long been forgotten. It gives us all another opportunity to unlearn and relearn. It is truly fantastic to see how each and every of my team members have benefited from these sessions and indirectly it has enhanced the team bonding as these sessions help build a common topic in their daily communication.

We first engaged Bernard to journey with us, using his LEAD Through Crisis workshop module, on the onset of the Malaysian government’s Movement Control Order to help the team navigate through such unprecedented times. Throughout this process, he demonstrated professionalism, passion and thoughtfulness in how he delivered the topics and dedication when he engaged with us individually.
From my experience, he value-adds to our conversations. And the fact that he carries with him that sense of integrity and wisdom, he made it all the more easier to work with him.
