Grace De Castro
Founder and Chief Empowerment Officer - Vision et Agir Management Consultancy
Grace is the Founder and Chief Empowerment Officer of Vision et Agir Management Consultancy, Inc. V+A is a boutique consulting firm specializing in customized people practices and business solutions. As a go-to authority for inspired interventions, V+A runs the gamut from leadership coaching and organizational development to shop floor selling expertise; from life mentoring, career mapping, and image building to public speaking and wellness coaching. All these in keeping with Grace’s professional and personal mantra of “always leave it better than you found it.”
Grace enjoyed an amazing career spanning nearly 20 years which began in the academe as an English teacher (while running her own events management company from the age of 19!) for several years. She made the jump into the corporate arena by starting her human resources career in Unilever Philippines. Grace then moved up to various HR roles with esteemed companies such as Levi Strauss, Shell International, Globe Telecom, Nestle, and Convergys.
With a desire to go back to her entrepreneurial roots, Grace founded V+A while also building another global business in partnership with the world’s premier metabolic health science company.
Known to wear many hats, Grace is an HR Guru, life coach, business and career strategist, and a wellness advocate. She is also an in-demand image consultant and one of the most engaging public speakers in the field today.
Yet among the many roles she takes on, Grace’s favorite remains the closest to her heart – that is as doting mother to her 2 wonderful sons, John and Tomas.
