She is a regular and frequent guest lecturer in Pepperdine University's doctoral program in Organizational Leadership.

Break Through Business Results

Agnes is a coach and partner to leaders who deal with the complexities, uncertainties and turbulences of today's global business world - while having to deliver ever better business results. She understands organizational (and national) cultures and how best to navigate them.

Agnes’s coaching is credited with supporting:

  • A senior partner in a global consulting company repatriating from an assignment in Asia. Accepted a substantial regional responsibility in the US with minimal adjustment period, making a smooth and cost-effective transition for the company and quickly leveraging her experience to lead her region to top tier performance.
  • Supported a senior partner in a professional services firm during a transition to a stretch assignment. Coaching led to a new function with global responsibilities and a seat on the executive committee.
  • Coached a female Senior Partner in one of the nation's Big Four Accounting Firms to achieve election to the firm's board by strengthening her firm-wide strategic perspective, building credibility and connections through collaboration and sharpening delegation and mentoring skills.
