Our Intention, Values, Team, Network

Our Intention

Epicoaching started in Singapore with the intention to invite others to transform their life through coaching and agility.

We believe that the next generation of extraordinary leaders, like you, need to embrace agility and build meaningful, compassionate and curious relationships. They also need to become masters at taking in and taping in all perspectives available to them. Lastly, ignite other’s passions and transform people around them by staying connected to, and stating, their true intentions.

We understand that one cannot act alone to do great things. For that reason we are very excited to be part of an international network of coaches that are committed to make an impact on the world around them.

Executive & Developmental Coach

I believe that people need to write their own story, and have intense relationships, for the world that we know now to evolve to one we want to live in the future.

Michael Bertrand

Founder & Executive Coach

I am here for those who have arrived at a junction, either intentionally or not. They may be experiencing tension or sheer excitement; whatever it is, it is a big thing!  I help my clients navigate complexity, find innovative solutions and transform themselves.

Leadership Profile

I offer a rich developmental space for my clients to scale their impact on people, culture, or society, become more connected and courageous, and have deep relationships with themselves and others.

I hold space for clarity, acceptance of what is and the richness of choices available in any situation. I mirror patterns that may be getting in the way and explore alternatives.

My specialities are executive coaching, team coaching, facilitation, and team performance. I have an ICF PCC certification and have been trained in neurobehavioral coaching, systemic coaching, adult developmental coaching, Immunity to Change, and co-active coaching.

Since I discovered integral coaching and adult development theory about a decade ago, I have been exploring it and gradually integrating it into my work with my clients. I personally experienced the power of understanding from which lens I am perceiving and experiencing the world around me. It has helped me reveal powerful assumptions and beliefs and clarify what really matters to me. I have realized that, to me, alignment is about embracing two perspectives that appear not able to co-exist, that being curious about my own shadows is where the most profound opportunities reside, and that the day I let go of the need to be seen is the day I truly see myself. All these perspectives have helped me generate flow in my personal and professional life by letting go of my resistance and committing to be in the moment, as present as possible.

My life has been one of integrating with many cultures, one of many reboots and one full of powerful encounters. I grew up in a mixed-culture family, and I could never choose which one to call home. For a long time, it felt like I could not have roots because I needed to make a choice. Today, I realise that it was a gift. It led me to explore living and adopting multiple cultures, professionally navigate a wide range of opportunities in which I have held senior leadership roles, led large teams across multiple continents and drove large organizational transformations. I owe the giant leaps in my life to the wonderful people I encountered along the way who helped me see beyond my perceived reality, challenged me to be courageous or simply held a powerful mirror in which I could observe myself. Thanks to them, I now dedicate my time to offering the same to others.

In addition to these exhilarating professional experiences, I also found time to pursue my passion for sports. I have been an elite athlete competing at national and international levels. All these experiences have made me very comfortable with the unknown, made me an expert in perspective taking, ignited my passion for team dynamics, and created a space of simplicity for myself. I work with my clients from a place of deep empathy, calm, courage, and curiosity.

Fazlina Nasir

Operations Director

“I believe there is no perfect moment to start living your dreams. You will be what you believe in!”

I am trained in Neuro Linguistic Programming, Enneagram, Reiki and exploring topics such as hypnotherapy.

My passion for self-development is what invites me to explore and help those around me.

My intention for the future, is to create a sustainable and impactful coaching practice that will create the space and support adult development.

My background is very diverse, and I have never been afraid to take big steps to change the course of things in my life. I have always been part of a team, may it have been in in complex offshore projects or in tight security engagements. Each experience has been for me an opportunity to learn more about myself and the teams I worked with.

All along, I keep noticing the importance of building strong relationships, bringing empathy in stressful situations and being courageous in front of setbacks.

I have seen what amazing things teams can accomplish when their emotional system is flowing and when they stay available for each other.
