Irene Ohler’s Story

Irene arrived in Vietnam in 2012, after 15 years of international experience on 4 continents in leadership development.


One of the first things she noticed were the remarkable women of Vietnam. She kept meeting accomplished women, in both formal and informal leadership positions. She was fascinated and knew she had found a huge treasure still to 'be uncovered'. This treasure has remained a passion and a focus for Irene.


Since then Irene has pioneered a number of initiatives to inspire women and ignite their leadership.  She has co-authored the award-winning book on Women Leaders, Ba Trieu’s 21st Century Daughters. Stories of Remarkable Vietnamese Women, has co-founded the inter-cultural and inter-generational events series, the Women’s Storytelling Salon, and become a sought after speaker on the topic of women leadership. 


2019 saw the birth of LightPath Leadership, which combines Irene’s deep experience in executive coaching, intercultural consulting, the power of storytelling and her personal mission of creating impact by developing authentic leaders.


As part of this, LightPath Leadership is now offering cutting edge international women leadership programmes tailored to the Vietnamese context.
