‘There are no problems without solutions’


Why Dragon&Phoenix? Dragon and Phoenix are two of the most powerful symbols of success and prosperity in Chinese mythology with red representing good luck and fortune, and gold representing wealth and abundance. A rising phoenix symbolises rebirth, beating all challenges in life, and defeating hard times, and therefore represents transformation, strength and renewal. In Feng Shui, this pair is also considered to be the ultimate symbol of ‘marital joy’. The equivalent in a business context, therefore, is strong business partnerships and mutually beneficial business growth arrangements, and this is my key focus when providing you with business consultancy services.
