With more than 13 years’ experience working with people, in business and in organisations in Cambodia, Vietnam, Thailand and Japan, Vibol (Luke) has committed to developing himself and helping others to develop their skills, knowledge and positive attitudes. His main speciality lies in people skills -“soft skills”. Luke believes that while a combination of soft and technical skills are important; it is the soft (people) skills that are essential for enhanced management and in the 21st century’s business environment; and it is these skills, along with critical thinking, that are lacking – but most needed – here in Cambodia.
Luke began  working  with    people in   teaching  roles and youth  counselling  and also  with a   number   of training organisations   working as a trainer, facilitator and coordinator 10 years ago. He joined Inspire Asia at the beginning of 2015 after he was offered a position as a  trainer and facilitator, where his skills and knowledge have become even more global and broad. For the past 3 years his main role has been in facilitating and coordinating all programs and workshops, and also in training and translation. He delivers professional programs, workshops and seminars in both Khmer and English and regularly receives excellent feedback from clients.

He  continues his research and understanding of the needs and requirements of the Cambodian organisations and workforce so that his skills may be utilised and shared with others not just in a theoretical way but through practical application and full understanding.
