Lai Han Sam

Han Sam, aka Sam, is a life coach who focuses exclusively on coaching women with a global outlook. She specialises in mid-life and career transitions, working with corporate and private individuals in areas of better work-life balance, fulfilling relationships, productive careers, financial freedom, self-awareness, as well as personal and professional development. Her style of coaching is intuitively in the moment, with a creative flair and focus on pragmatic results. Clients love her strong but supportive approach.

 Her clients include founders, entrepreneurs, C-suite executives and mid-level managers in MNCs, as well as corporate professionals with backgrounds hailing from healthcare, sustainability management, legal, retail, technology, banking, media, marketing, accountancy, finance and startups. Sam has more than 20 years of experience navigating the corporate world in a NASDAQ-listed company, leading high-performance teams and coaching associates in sales, marketing, operations, as well as support and client management. These are valuable skills she brings to the coaching process. In her last held position, Sam was responsible for market direction and strategies related to the Singapore healthcare market, managing a pipeline worth 140 million dollars.

No stranger to change, her transition from being a pharmacist to working in a multinational healthcare IT company, to starting her own company, reflects her coaching style of exploring the unknown and remaining curious about life.

She lives in Singapore with her husband and four teenage and young adult children, and has her hands full between her personal life and work. The challenges of being a wife, mother, and a full-time worker stretch her balancing skills and mould her decision to live a purposeful life.
