Kate Bollanou

Personal Leadership Coach


Kate is a Personal Leadership Coach and an advocate of women empowerment. Her mission is to help Asian women in the West overcome gender and cultural stereotypes so they can live their life on their own terms.

Kate’s biracial background has given her firsthand experience of the challenges women from Asian backgrounds face. Born and raised in Greece, to a Greek father and a Filipino mother, she can very successfully navigate between the two cultures without losing her own identity.

She has several Degrees and Certificates under her belt and she is a passionate lifelong learner. She first studied Hospitality Management and worked in several luxurious establishments around the world, with her highlight being the 7-star hotel in Dubai, Burj Al Arab.

As her next step, Kate decided to move to England and do her Master’s degree in Shipping and Commercial Law. She continued her working experience as a Shipbroker in London for 6 years.

Right after having her second daughter, Kate got Certified as an ICF Executive and Professional Life Coach. She enhanced her skills with an Ivy League Certificate in Women in Leadership from Cornell University. Kate is also a trained DISC personality assessment expert, which enables her to have a holistic approach with her Clients.

Kate has now put all her experience, knowledge and skills into her Coaching Business, where she guides women through their transformation from feeling constantly constrained, to feeling empowered and confident to take ownership of their life.

Her mantra is ‘Rise and lead your life!’
