How I Got Here: Tanja Bach

Tanja Bach Profile Pic2Ever been asked “What do you do?” My answer: “I empower people to become the best version of themselves.”

As a coach and facilitator, I am lucky to do what I love by enabling leaders, teams, entrepreneurs and anyone with a dream to realize their potential and be the best version of themselves. I like to think of it as giving them the mental “kick” they need to propel themselves to success.  After 10 years of freelancing, I officially registered my own business in January 2017, “Contents Bridge,” which specializes in leadership training, psychometric assessments and coaching.

FEW has been an important part of my journey here in Japan. Since moving here, I crossed paths with FEW twice with very different purposes and outcomes.  The first time was in 1999, when I was new in town, looking to find some friends.  However, as work got busy, I took a break from FEW that unintentionally lasted for almost 15 years. Fortunately, the friendships endured that break and in 2015, I was approached by the FEW Board to be a speaker at the FEW Career Strategy Seminar (CSS).

In summer 2016, by the twist of fate, I ended up being a committee member of the Women’s Start-up Club.  This activity goes straight to the heart of my passion to empower entrepreneurs with encouragement and practical, hands-on tips on how to be successful.

I feel fortunate to have met and benefited from the knowledge and energy of amazing female entrepreneurs at different spectrums of their start-up journeys and am able to connect to a variety of inspirational speakers. Not only has this helped me to grow as an entrepreneur myself, but the connections and network have provided business opportunities that I otherwise would have not come across.

For all of this I owe FEW, the WSC and all of those that participate a big thank you!
