chan vibolMr.Bouth Chan Vibol (Luke) Professional Learning & Development Facilitator BBA Degree in Business Administration, NUM Cert IV in Training and Assessment – Fortress Learning, Australia. With more than 13 years’ experience working with people, in business and in organizations 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 specialty 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 counseling and also with a number of training organizations 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. Luke has worked with many individuals, businesses and organizations in Cambodia across a broad range of sectors including many different NGO’s, logistics, telecommunications, MFI’s, banking and Finance, insurance, wholesale distribution, manufacturing, engineering, construction, petroleum, oil and gas, brewing and canning, educational institutions, service industries, franchise companies, dental clinics and tourism and hospitality. He continues his research and understanding of the needs and requirements of the Cambodian organizations and workforce so that his skills may be utilized and shared with others not just in a theoretical way but through practical application and full understanding.
