This woman goes beyond and above at anything she touched! I am a huge fan of everything Cynthia stands for! Yes that is a bold statement, but she is that great! A coach & mentor in life and business, she had helped me build a career and business filled with values that attract other quality individuals to work on a common project to make life better for one another! Words can't express my gratitude for having her in my life!Malene Grotrian, Founder Malene Grotrian Designs, Vancouver www.malenegrotrian.com
I will never forget the first time I met Cynthia. We were at the Forum for Women Entrepreneurs, and she was chairing the meeting. Everyone was bringing up their business issues and Cynthia, within less than one minute and without missing a beat, could identify the root of the issue and coach these people (all 12 of them) in the right direction. I was amazed. I had to get to know who this brilliant woman was. I began attending some of Cynthia's events, and met over twenty people who had been coached by Cynthia, men and women. Some of these people had had their business for many years, others were getting started, but all praised Cynthia and described in detail how much she helped each one of them either be more successful or, in certain cases, save their businesses. I have also personally discussed my own business with Cynthia and found her to be incredibly insightful. She is the only business coach I would recommend to anyone. She has an incredible amount of experience, and a personality you can't help but fall in love with.Natacha Beim, Founder & CEO, CEFA, Vancouver www.cefa.ca
I first met Cynthia in her capacity as CEO of a biotech firm. I recently needed help and advice on some business ideas and reached out for her counsel & advice. Cynthia generously responded providing guidance in a thoughtful, considered & practical way. For me, it was like seeing a clear path in the forest, and knowing it is the right way to proceed. It was the affirmation and assurance I needed and it has provided the tools to sharpen my focus, gather the right information, use my creativity & engage my efforts fully. Cynthia is the mark of not only a great mentor and coach, she has the experience & empathy to guide you to where you want to go.Bob Manfield, Principal at DRM Services, Vancouver
