What Clients say about Margie's Coaching Training & Executive Coaching experience sharing ......

I had the pleasure of working with Margie as my trainer and mentor.  Not only does Margie have extensive experience and knowlege in delivering ICF coaching programs, she is passionate and committed to the success of those she trains.  For anyone seeking to obtain coaching skills and or credentials, I cannot recommend a better trainer.

- Karen Chan PCC, Global Projects Director at world's largest law firm

Margie is patient, experienced and knowledgeable coach who is also a great coach mentor and trainer.  I have attended her ICF ACC and PCC coaching programmes, where she imparted a great amount of both theoretical and practical knowledge to us, enhancing our ability to be the best coaches we can be! Great work Margie!

- Brian Tsoi  PCC, General Manager, Airport Service Delivery at Cathay Pacific, Leadership Coach 

I am happy to meet Margie and enrolled the coaching course. It is not only a course learning about coaching but also a transformational course to myself too. Coaching is some magical technique to drive people go further in life.

Margie is a fantastic teacher! Knows how to make everybody feel welcome, is very knowledgeable and competent, and handles the content in a way that is pleasant and easy to follow. Studying with her you will get you much practical experience, and that is a huge differential in her class. I am thankful to have joined her class at Paradigm21! Would recommend to anybody!

 - Erica de ABreu Santos Yanney PCC , Career Coach Pennsyvanlia USA

Highly recommended to take the classes.  The best training course with great Mentor I ever had before which lead me to achieve my ACC and PCC in the second year from International Coaching Federation.  Margie is a great professional executive coach. I learned a lot from her class and enjoyed the journey. She really transforms me. 

- Vivian Chong PCC, HR Director Oxford University Press

Margie has been more than supportive towards my coaching journey. She has been sharing with us more than just her knowledge and skills but also her experience as a Transformational Coach.  She demonstrates nothing but positivity and commitment to see all of us sucessfully achieve the ICF accreditation.  Couldn't ask for a better mentor!

- Nalinrat Rattanajit ACC, DIrector of L&D Shangri-la.

Margie is a wonderful coach, teacher and mentor. Her kind support and guidance are very much appreciated.  Also, the entire training program is so well structured for our busy students and organized that I would recommend to anyone who is interested in this field

- Anita Wong Director Asia Legal Counsel 


Before joining Margie's Paradigm 21's coaching training program, I already had many lessons and training on coaching, from the "Grow" model to Nike/Apple's internal coaching trainings. I did not expect much when I signed up for this course, but I must say I am blown away by the experience. First, I love the way Margie worked hard to emphasize the difference between coaching, training, and consulting. This fundamentally changed how I worked with my clients and helped me focus my effort to become a better coach. I used to be all over the place. I would offer suggestions, take clients to solutions too soon, ignore clients' motivations, and "did the work for my client" instead of coaching them to find their own paths. I have evolved thanks to Margie's training. Second, the structure of the training was incredibly effective and supportive. Even though the training was conducted entirely via Zoom, due to COVID, the interaction and atmosphere was better than any of the in-person coaching training I have received in the past, even at my previous companies such as Nike and Apple. The trainer and facilitators made a considerable effort to make sure everyone got to participate without being pushy. They steered the conversation towards positivity, learning, and growth. They created a safe space for me to be vulnerable, which propelled me to thorough growth and ultimately, transformation. Lastly, I really appreciate the vast network of classmates and alumni from all the courses of Paradigm 21. I felt blessed to be in a community of folks who all shared the passion for personal growth and coaching/serving others. It's priceless to be able to find my own tribe! Thank you for this transformative experience. I am very grateful.

- David Siu ACC, Ex-GM MNC, Leadership Coach 


Margie guided us as our mentor in our journey to become transformational coaches at Paradigm21.  Throughout this journey, Margie involced us and pushed us out of our comfort zone to learn.  She was able to sustain our passion and enthusiasm by building social platforms for us to share and learn with other coaches globally.  Lastly by walking the talk, she has set the pace and cadence for us as future coaching leaders to help enrich others lives.  Thank you Margie.

- Kevin Yao ACC, Director Athlete Experience, Greater China, Nike, Shanghai China

I have found the learning experience from Margie extremely positive, the technique and approaches she taught me dramatically improved my coaching skills. She was very flexible and helpful. Her tips, tools, techniques, and suggestion was “spot on”. I am greatly thankful for that, it is enlightening, provoking, reflective and objective focus.

- Montana Chan ACC, ex- L&D Director, MNC HK, Shanghai China, Executive Coach

Never stop learning and I am so lucky to take the coaching program facilitated by Margie, she is patient and willing to answer all my questions, and give me the advice on how to go through the challenges during the coaching session.
