Sok-ho is a Passionologist, a global-minded business leader, and he lives his life and his career with Passion.
He spent 15 years working in global organizations in retail and consumer analytics senior roles and as an entrepreneur. He has also served as an advisory board member and a mentor to social enterprises.
Encouraged by his longing to ignite people’s Passion, Sok-ho got committed to various people initiatives in the space of leadership development, organizational culture, and diversity & inclusion. This also encouraged him to create his own positive psychology coaching practice.
Moved by the tragedy experienced by his own family, survivor of the Cambodian genocide in the 1970’s, and inspired by passionate role models met in his life, Sok-ho was called by his longing to give back to the world.
Hence, he launched a movement that he calls “Passionology” which aims at unleashing people’s Passion for the world to thrive sustainably, leveraging the science of Happiness among others disciplines. This concretized with the formation of Institute of Passion, a well-being and cross-disciplinary scientific Institute and with his PhD in Positive Psychology at the University of East London where he investigates the topic of Passion.
His Passion for growing others motivated Sok-ho to lecture in universities and schools and to be a speaker at major conferences and key events to deliver his humanistic vision.
