About Sylvia

What motivates me every day is helping leaders like you bring out their bold ideas with confidence so they can empower and inspire others.

Over the past 20 years, I’ve coached and trained over 7000 professionals across Canada, the US,  South East Asia and Europe in voice, public speaking, communication and leadership skills. From CEOs to politicians, public servants of all levels, scientists, entrepreneurs, among others, I’ve helped leaders take their communication from unassuming to impactful. 

Having grown up in Europe and worked internationally, I understand that leadership and communication challenges are universal, and that to overcome them means drawing upon your own innate strengths.  

This is where I come in. As a coach and trainer, I simply facilitate your learning and discovery process by listening to you and sharing valuable tools.

My innate ability to quickly identify your needs and apply a coaching process that is totally customized to you is one of my biggest strengths, and it would be my pleasure to help you attain your leadership goals.
