As a Canadian, now living in Switzerland, I have my roots in the world of ice-hockey. I worked many years as a player, coach and manager for top teams in Germany and Switzerland. I also had the opportunity to work with Team Canada at six Spengler Cup tournaments.
Since 1999 I have worked full-time as a in-house trainer, coach and keynote-speaker. My education, a Bachelor of Education and a Bachelor of Physical Education, at the University of Manitoba, provided an ideal foundation for my work today. I extended this with further education as a trainer and speaker in Australia and Canada.
Early on, I identified the link between high performance in sport and business and realized that there are many parallels between these two worlds. Drawing on my past experiences in professional sport, I share many personal examples and exciting real-life stories to make my sessions come alive.
My passion is leadership development. My mission is to help people see their potential so clearly that it makes a difference in their lives. My work includes coaching, team vision, motivation, high-performance, communication, psychology of winning and health and wellbeing. I believe that the development of leaders and leadership is the competitive advantage. The core of my philosophy is that leadership development is an inside-out process. It begins by defining clear values and creating a vision and mission on a personal level and that leads to effective leadership on a professional level.
