Doy has conducted many workshops for leading high technology, consulting, and financial services firms, including Adobe, Cypress Semiconductor, Novartis, as well as non-profit and governmental organizations. When coaching and training professionals, he draws upon his own professional experiences as a business strategist, a product manager, and an operational manager overseeing global teams in the financial services and high- tech industry.
Doy has a BA in Economics from Stanford University and an MBA from UC Berkeley’s Haas Business School. He is a certified coach from the Berkeley Executive Coaching Institute. While at Stanford, he directed Stanford’s Mixed Company a cappella group, produced an album, and won the 2001 Contemporary A Cappella Recording Award (CARA) for one of his many a cappella arrangements. His love for the performing arts extended to other stages as an actor—from Shakespeare to Broadway musicals—and a dancer with Bay Area’s hip hop dance companies. Today, Doy utilizes his extensive experiences in the performing arts to develop communicating skills and leadership presence for others.
Growing up in a multicultural and multilingual household, Doy has a deep appreciation for diversity and different perspectives. He spent half of his life in Southeast Asia and the other in America and has met many inspirational leaders and powerful communicators—each with their own qualities and approach. Doy’s goal as a coach and instructor is to be the catalyst for others to discover their full potential as an authentic leader and inspirational communicator.
