Welcome to Discover You Inner Genius
A place for high achievers to find clarity and direction in their career and business
"Best program I have ever attended in my career - Kacie"
Welcome! I'm Yu Dan. I'm known for helping people find clarity in their career, business and life, so they can focus on what really matters and succeed with joy and meaning.
In 2008, I was a senior executive with a young family. Seemingly, I had it all. However, I felt tired, unhappy and wanted to quit. In the end, I didn't quit. Instead, I began a search for an answer.
I did extensive research over the years. What I found is that what I felt is normal and many people experience this at some point in their life. This can be turned around with a simple approach.
The Inner Genius approach gave me renewed direction, energy, and took me to a whole new level of joy, success, and fulfilment.
My greatest joy today is enabling others to do the same. Read my search and journey.

You see she had a similar affliction, till she discovered her path and established her "Discover Your Inner Genius" program to share it with others. Yu Dan is practical, passionate and an ex-corporate exec. Working with her has completely changed my thinking.
Charlie Pidcock - Entrepreneur & Thought Leader
I have attended a number of programs over the years. Yu Dan’s “Discover Your inner Genius” is one of the best. Yu Dan takes you on a journey of self-awareness and discovery beautifully and empathetically.
My career and life were like a jigsaw puzzle, I had all the pieces, but just don't know how to put them together. Yu Dan helped me put the puzzle together. It has given the direction, clarity, purpose and renewed energy I needed for my business and myself. I am back in the flow with absolute clarity.
Put some time aside for yourself – you’ll get it back in spades. It's one of the best things I have done in my life.
Kacie Serls - Head of Sydney & Brisbane - Reprise
"Discover Your Inner Genius" is the best personal development program I've ever attended!
I entered the program feeling disengaged and disenchanted with my job and it was impacting the rest of my life in a negative way. I left the program feeling energised and have outlined ways to ustilise my natural strengths and abilities in my day to day not only at work but also in my personal life.
Yu Dan was able to help me dig deep. The output of the session being a personal vision, purpose and roadmap that has inspired me to do things in my daily life differently and explore opportunities that I never thought were possible.
For anyone needing a new lease on life this course is for you.
Ben Mooney - Director of Sales & Partner Alliances, Publicis Sapient
I knew Yu Dan was the best person to work with me on this journey. Coaching is a tough gig but comes so naturally for her making you feel comfortable while also pushing you to be your best. Each session moves me closer to my goals and it is great to know Yu Dan is there to help guide the way.
I am now in a job I am very excited about. I have also set up a social enterprise on the side which is completely aligned with my Inner Genius and passion.
It has been life changing!
Jennifer Alison - ex-Digital Marketing Manager, now founder of Next Chapter Photography
When I came to Yu Dan I was at a huge turning point, with a well-paying, but stressful marketing job and a growing sideline in wedding photography.
My health was suffering so I made the leap to focus on my own photography business, something I'd dreamt of for 10 years. The Inner Genius programme and Yu Dan's ongoing support have helped me gain clarity when I needed it most, work from my strengths daily and sideline the fears. I've secured enough weddings for the season ahead one back in the UK, a lucrative destination wedding.
My business is growing rapidly and I'm already confidently quoting at the prices I'd planned for the end of 2018!
Adam Goodman, Strategy Director, Accordant
"Discover your Inner Genius" is the best program I have experienced in my career. The program helped me identify & clarify not only my strengths but also my fears. The discovery is fun, but more importantly enlightening and actionable. You leave the sessions motivated with a method to leverage your key strengths in overcoming your fears in work, in life and in almost any situation. The career roadmap has provided me with a plan to take forward and one of the best quotes I'll utilise is "Make Friends with your fear. Fear may come along for the ride, but it's going to take a back seat".
If you want to discover your Inner Genius, your vision and your purpose, and start to work towards the career you truly want - certainly take the program!"
Anneka Hunston – Head of Solution Consulting, Asia Pacific, Adobe
The “Discover Your Inner Genius” workshop is life changing and like no other as you will identify your strengths and inner genius to help you be the best you can be and use them to overcome fear. The workshop is delivered with the perfect balance of inspiration and practicality. Yu Dan is passionate, knowledgeable and intuitive who knows how to guide each of us to discover our inner genius.
Huw Griffiths - Director of Client Services, Accordant
"Discover Your Inner Genius" has truly helped me see my strengths, Inner Genius and potential in a different way. A way that I am extremely excited about, and that I know is going to have a powerful effect on my life and my career. Yu Dan has developed this workshop in a way that things which are traditionally complex, e.g. thinking about your own strengths and potential - becomes simple and clear.
I would highly recommend this program.
Dr. Michael Popplewell - Entrepreneur & Founder, True Results
Amazing! I recommend this to anyone who wants to live abundantly, pursue their dreams, and live authentically at the same time.
Dr. Brendan Coutts – Head Analyst, Ricoh & Founder of Inner Lantern
This workshop is amazingly, superbly great! I can’t overstate how powerful it is. To say that it showed me how to create the career and life that is my purpose for being here on this planet is a huge statement – but that’s what Yu Dan delivers.
It has given me a deep understanding of what I am here to do, how I will make it happen, and how to overcome anything that could prevent me from living my fullest and most meaningful life. How incredibly cool is that? And this was not just my experience. Part of the beauty of the workshop was seeing other people experience the joy of getting the same clarity about their career and life path. You owe it to yourself to stop doing whatever you are doing, and do this workshop.
Mark Krywienko – Client Services Manager, Ecosave
I have never been happier. The impact during and after the workshop has been very profound. The exercise that we used to overcome our fear was the most powerful technique I have ever come across. I now have more confidence, personal strength and self-awareness. I work in Sales and Marketing, and have a passionate interest in Music.
What I took away has had immediate benefit to me in both areas. The program is inspiring and real and is led by Yu Dan whose life long learning and experiences has enabled her to create this powerful program.
Jurgen Schmechel - Entrepreneur & Founder, How to make it last
Yu Dan's "Discover Your Inner Genius" program is stimulating and exciting. Even if you knew some of your strengths, her unique approach allows you to dig deep and really get in tune with your individual strengths. That clarity then leads effortlessly to discovering your Inner Genius. I highly recommend Yu Dan's workshop to anyone, who wants more clarity and confidence in their lives.
For me this clarity was a great revelation and I am using the vision and the purpose every day. Thank you so much Yu Dan.
Ingrid Messner - Entrepreneur & Founder, Authentic Values
I have done a lot of strength development work. This is different.
Yu Dan combined several evidence-based concepts, expanded on them and created a very practical program that helped us first define our strengths and then how to use them to achieve our vision on a daily basis. We left with a clear action plan that we already started to implement. The workshop is very energising, lots of fun and has great insights. By knowing my strengths and Inner Genius, making life and business decisions has become so much easier. Thank you!
Robert Lindley – Sales & Marketing Leader, InQuik
Having worked in corporate for over 30 years I've spent my fair share of time in training courses. With the title of "Discover your Inner Genius" I was attending with high expectations and I can safely say that those expectations were met and exceeded. Everything from the venue, content and Yu Dan's mastery of bringing out direction and clarity from the attendees was superb.
I'd highly recommend this course to individuals or companies looking to make the most of their most valuable asset - yourself or the employees within your organization.

Yu Dan, I can't believe I have really been able to discover my gifts, Inner Genius, purpose, vision, let go my long-held self-limiting beliefs, and create a roadmap for my career & life to take forward all in such a short period of time.
I didn't think it was possible! I have never been happier.
