FACILITATION & MENTORING
As Advisor and Partner for talent incubator and startup generator Antler in Singapore and Amsterdam, I provide coaching clinics and design thinking workshops to its founder cohorts to help them address real-world challenges through human-centred problem analysis and solution design.
As a LEAN expert and trainer for Sweden-based global learning provider Hyper Island in Singapore, I’ve led and facilitated tailored training workshops for the Masters in Digital Management Program to teach students how to apply LEAN startup principles throughout the ideation, execution and iteration process.
the WORKING CAPITOL
In 2016 and 2017, I worked with the founders and teams behind one of Singapore’s leading co-working spaces The Working Capitol to provide data-driven team assessments, bespoke training programs, and a 2-day offsite leadership program to support business growth and transformation at pivotal stages of organisational restructuring, growth and new strategy development and implementation.

In 2014, I worked with the Impact HUB Singapore to support its collaborative initiative with the INSEAD Business School and DBS Bank to successfully launch its earliest chapters of a 3-day intensive Social Entrepreneurship Bootcamp in Singapore. I also developed a community leader’s Playbook and Trainer Manual that led to the successful launch and rollout of the Bootcamp at Impact HUB Malaysia and Cambodia.
“Solonia conducted a workshop for my co-founder and I, at a pivotal time for our business; when we needed to address some of our past mistakes and bring to light the learnings, find focus and clarity on the way forward and, identify our own roles in the business. It was a mix of soul-searching, strategising and goal setting - an impactful (and fun!) 2-day workshop that helped me grow and lead with more purpose.”
- CO FOUNDER AND CEO, THE WORKING CAPITOL
“Solonia was pivotal in my understanding of Lean practices and methodology. She led my class at Hyper Island through an intensive 3-day program where we turned ideas into operating businesses - no easy feat. She guided us through the process, teaching us the fundamentals, but also allowed us learn on our own. Solonia is an incredibly intuitive and skilled facilitator, and combines her array of experiences with textbook practices to create a holistic and innovative learning approach and experience.”
- MASTERS PROGRAM STUDENT, HYPER ISLAND
“Working with Solonia is the easiest thing to do. She is present, mindful and great at what she does. She is a brilliant facilitator, always ensuring balance in the room, always making sure all participants are getting the best out of each other. She is agile and open and willing to discuss ideas without prejudice.”
- PROGRAM COORDINATOR, SOCIAL CHANGE IN ACTION
“Solonia is a great facilitator — very knowledgeable, full of energy, great at managing the class and fielding questions.”

“I learned more in this workshop than a full day course.”
