In her earlier career, Ida worked as a Project Purchasing Manager to build the first Four Seasons Hotel in mainland China and then moved on to help one of her suppliers to set up their Shanghai business. In 2005, she moved to Canada where she was trained as a psychotherapist to work with couples, families and groups with a systemic, culturally sensitive approach.

She is known for her commercial understanding, people insights and international perspective, and is specialized in helping leaders to increase their cross-cultural competency and expand their influence beyond the borders as they move up. For example, she uses the methodology of screenwriting in her coaching to assist today’s leaders to tell a more powerful story that engages an international audience by creating vivid mental images.
