How we work
Just as exceptional leaders are uniquely individual, so are the actions each person needs to take on the pathway to achieve success as a leader.
That’s why, at Optimal Life Solutions, we don’t offer a one-size-fits-all package or program.
Prior to offering our executive coaching services, we consult with you to assess your needs and tailor our offering specifically to your desired outcomes.
This allows us to serve you better with optimal utilisation of your resources for excellent results.
Services are provided to businesses and to individuals.
Services to Individuals
Our clients come for all sorts of reasons - sometimes they need to have an awkward conversation and are concerned about what to say; sometimes it's because they are in a leadership space and are concerned they don't know what to say to make their team feel enthused or inspired; sometimes they've been given feedback that they need to improve the way they communicate; sometimes, they suffer from social anxiety and want to be able to comfortably navigate social events.
Often, there's a combination of reasons.
Whatever your reason for reaching out, we will show you respect for your personal journey and work at a pace that is right for you.
Names or information about our clients is not shared without client consent. So, you can be assured of our confidentiality.
The first step is to make an appointment to chat with Mary personally - this is a free, no-obligation session where we look at where you are now, where you'd like to be and what options are available for you to get there.

Business Story Facilitation
Sharing your why with your audience will deepen their interest and enthusiasm in what you have to offer.
Using a process of facilitation and mentoring, this 90-minute session helps you discover your business story for use in presentations or networking events.
Once your magic is realised, Mary writes your story for you. The completed story is delivered a maximum of 10 business days after the session.
When your story shows who you are on a deeper level, your audience buy-in zooms upward.
As an Amazon International Best-Selling Author, and with multiple awards for short stories under her belt, you can be sure Mary knows how to write engaging books and stories.
She enjoys applying her writing ability to your projects.
As every writing project differs, pricing is based on the individual project. Delivery times also vary depending on the scale of the project. For this reason, writing projects are offered on a strictly limited basis and are subject to availability.
"To anyone considering any form of training, coaching, or mentoring in speaking or leadership skills, Mary Wong IS the person you should be looking to.
Having been successfully coached and mentored by Mary in public speaking, I engaged her to Coach me in Business Leadership. Within ten one hour online one-to-one sessions, I gained a far greater understanding of an area I work in but had never been formally trained. Mary’s wonderful training made a huge difference."

"The experience of crafting one’s story and the way Mary extracts it is BRILLIANT. There’s so much you can pick up from Mary’s methodology. I really am very grateful."
Burton Business Consulting.
"With an important deadline looming, the other parties were stalling and my requests for necessary discussions were falling on deaf ears.
Mary assisted me to write an email that ensured their attention. They went to work immediately, and the matter was sorted within the required timeframe."
"I had to have an awkward conversation with a business associate who wasn't holding up their end of the deal.
It could have ended on a bad note, but with Mary’s help to find the right words, the conversation flowed and the desired results were achieved."
"Mary Wong is a very engaging coach, brimming with tips and information. I personally have picked up invaluable confidence when training with Mary and will definitely sign up for more."
