What Customers Have To Say
Associate Director, Campaign Planning and Development
"Anna contagiously drives to go beyond merely making the world a "better" place. She seeks to make it a place you'd actually want to be in, a place you can truly thrive in. That clear sense of joy, purpose - backed by the necessary skills and global experience - was brought each time we met and collaborated. Incredibly intelligent, intuitive, and creative, Anna is a true asset."
Communications & Marketing | Founder | MD of Explore Comms
"Anna led our Female Foundry bootcamp and her involvement as our trainer brought the professionalism of our accelerator programme up a level. Her great depth of knowledge in the start-up world coupled with her inspiring and encouraging attitude pushed our Female Foundry accelerator programme from good to great. The feedback from the women who attended was testament to this."
Author and Entrepreneur
"Anna's unique enthusiasm maintained my attention and interest throughout. It's easy to see how she has earned the right to be advising us on this subject, because she has relevant outstanding examples of her own success in 'start ups' and the professional world. Motivation was one part of the program, the practical examples and extensive resource guide is the other - it's amazing!!! Now I have the necessary tools to refer to in order to continue improving my business."
Vice President, Digital Transformation Division
"Anna was the coach to the 7 startups that were accelerated through the Digital ASEAN Accelerator Programme. Her delivery is clear and compelling, to the point that months down the line everyone remembers her sessions and the learnings. Her "pitch clinic" for startups really helped the founders refine their narrative, bringing structure, clarity and sharpness to their delivery, and equipped them with the right tools to bring sound business sense to their ideas."
Kim Huat Low
"Anna has the knack of making innovative concepts easy to understand and understanding users’ needs. During the ASEAN Digital Program, she conducted a full day class for 7 aspiring innovators from different backgrounds and countries. Several of them had little or no prior experience in managing businesses. Anna’s methodology, empathy and patience helped them to organise their thoughts systematically and gave them confidence to strengthen their business models."
Chester Drum M.D., Ph.D.
Innovation and Clinical Research Specialist
"Any commercialisation reviews are too diffuse and can even become a bit condescending when presented to domain experts. In focussing on specific Lean + Design Thinking methodologies, Anna brought both personal expertise and practical examples of how to get started and scale. For someone who has become a bit jaded as to pre-defined structures for commercialisation of novel technologies, Anna's presentation was refreshing and enjoyable to attend."
"Anna is a true ecosystem builder in my book. A rare ‘species’, one of a few, that has shown time and again to truly and fully understand where venture capital, startups and scaleups, and corporates can benefit from co-creation and collaboration from the get-go. Happy to have met, honoured to have collaborated, inspired to keep building together."
Serial Entrepreneur and Investor
"Drawing on her extensive knowledge of every aspect of the business she was able, rapidly, to research all relevant aspects of the market and to conclude that - in fact - it was unlikely to succeed. The evidence that Anna gathered and the efficiency with which she worked gave my board confidence to pass on what had seemed like a great opportunity and I am convinced that this saved us months of fruitless expenditure and allowed us to focus our energy on other aspects of our business." "

Founder, Ambit Robotics
"Founders typically have a host of people ready to offer advice. But Anna stands out from the crowd with her burning passion to see start-ups succeed. She offers tools which are both thoughtful and relevant."
"Anna shared an immense breadth of understanding on the venture creation process. Anna helped to add much needed context to our considerations around customer focused design providing insights we need to ensure successful outcomes. Anna also recommended frameworks and processes to consider. Since then, Anna has gone over and beyond supporting my venture journey and connecting me to her network. "
