Yu Du

co-founder & visionary coach

Yu is a co-founder of VisionaryLab. She is an advocate of multi-potentiality: a movement leader, a visionary coach, a meditation teacher, a somatic movement coach, an IT expert—and, most importantly, an inspired visionary.

Yu’s background includes a career in European Bank for Reconstruction and Development in London as well as Nabisco International and Danone in China. She is a co-leader of the Meaningfulness Movement. Yu holds a Master’s degree in Information Technology, a Bsc in Chemical Engineering, diplomas in Transformational Coaching (International Coach Federation accreditation), Somatic Movement, and The Science of Yoga (Yogic studies).

Having worked extensively with leaders and individuals in bringing in creativity, balance and commitments to their visions, Yu’s passion is to create an ecosystem of methods, tools, resources and inspirations to support visionaries. Yu’s commitment is to nurture and serve this ecosystem.

Yu has a deep interest in philosophy, opera, martial arts, SCUBA diving (with sharks!), although she has yet to find a way to do all of these together at the same time. She is an enthusiastic piano player and slave to one very friendly cat.
