"I was fortunate to have the opportunity to join the UBS LEADS program last year as a participant, and this year as part of the organising team. Although the topics were the same as last year, I didn't expect that someone, like Vivian from Evie Consulting, would be able to present it so well. By using tests and role-plays, She was able to deliver effective, practical knowledge and valuable skills in such a fun learning environment. Both the style and the substance of Vivian’s training are very different from the previous training sessions I've been to. I particularly enjoyed the "Charm Your Way Through Sensitive Topics" section. As a graduate who is now looking for a job, this training came at the perfect time. Vivian’s advice and strategies were very insightful. I have already begun to implement her suggestions and are confident they will improve my interviews."

"Vivian at Evie Consulting has worked with our Full time MBA program on a number of managerial development initiatives, principally on the improvement of interviewing skills. Vivian offers strategic insight, creativity and a lively approach to the training, which is highly effective. We find her program highly useful and actionable."

"I was fortunate to attend one of Vivian's seminars on business etiquette. I was deeply impressed by how colorful Vivian's teaching is. Business etiquette is not an easy subject and I don't think any of us are happy to find out that some of our habits are actually considered poor manners by others. Vivian uses vivid stories from her working experience to show us that proper etiquette will lead to better workplace relationships with our colleagues. Vivian is an eloquent speaker and she also has a great sense of humour. I find Vivian's career advice invaluable, and certainly recommend anyone to attend her seminars."
- Laurence C.K. Pak, Michael Page Business Etiquette 2010 seminar participant.
"Vivian has helped us train and coach students from Peking University since she was working at Goldman Sachs. She is a natural mentor and teacher, more importantly, she has strong passion to help students, in a professional way. The Learning Series she led ranked No.1 of the year among all the campus activities and her presentations were always crowded with students. For years she was invariably the most popular HR professional in our yearly graduate survey and she truly deserved all the praise.
Last year with Evie Consulting Vivian gave our undergraduate and MBA students a two-day training seminar on Strategic Interview Skills, Charming Your Way Through Sensitive Topics and Confident Professional Presence. Her delightful approach and expertise on interviews made the training pleasantly effective. Those who missed the classes kept asking us when Vivian will come back to talk again. She has the charm."
- Janet Wang, Director, Career Development Center, Guanghua School of Management, Peking University
"I have always found it difficult to organise and prioritise my goals, both short and long term. However, after I started career coaching with Vivian, I was able to focus my time and energy where it matters most. She has the remarkable ability to help identify what is important to you and resolve any issues that may be preventing you from accomplishing your goals. Our career coaching sessions have given me the structure, self-belief and determination I need to achieve great things."
- Liam McCormack
"Unlike all other interview coaching, Vivian’s approach offers a very special technique that looks at the interview process as a whole instead of only focusing on how to answer each question correctly. Vivian’s method has taught me how to pick the right tool to deal with any type of question at a split of a second. I was amazed by how easily this method can be adopted; even when it comes to nervousness or any kind of unexpected questions (Recruiters just love to be tricky!!!). If I had learnt it earlier than the day before my real interview, I wouldn’t have wasted so much time in preparing myself in the traditional way. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is job hunting right now. If you want to differentiate yourself from the competition in the eyes of the employer, here is the solution sitting right in front of you. Grab it or miss it."

"Marvellous! I have always been an entrepreneur and never interviewed for a job, but Vivian's advice helped me to understand how to structure the answers in an interview. I also revised my resume after her session, matching it with the job requirements of employers. The way she explained the process of filling the gaps between requirements of job and my profile was really appreciating. The best thing that happened to me was that I had an interview just 10 days after her session, and could use all of her suggestions in that interview. I really recommend her services for students as well as experienced professionals.""

"Thank you Evie Consulting! You’ve really showed me how to color myself beautiful! It is so true that choosing the right color and styles makes a difference. After a fun and educational time at Evie, I was so excited to clear out some closet space and to de-clutter my wardrobe!!! Over the weekend I cleared out clothes that have been sitting in my closet and not worn. You know…the clothes you like, but when you put it on yourself and wanted to change into another outfit after you’ve looked in the mirror? Don’t know why, but something just didn’t look or feel right after looking in the mirror. Now that I know what looks good on me, I’m saving quite a bit from shopping - not buying clothes that are not the right color for me, and choosing styles that makes my figure look flattering!"
- Sarah Cheng
"I have had makeovers before a couple of times but Evie Consulting is the only one I have come across who truly understands and senses what I need. Evie Consulting taught me how to bring out the best in me, making me feel natural and confident…. It was an enlightening experience which any woman will be sorry to miss."
