Jill Roussy Toronto, Ontario
Executive Coach, Career Coach, Life Coach
I am a certified executive coach, experienced marketer and qualitative researcher. Curious by nature, a dedicated life long learner and interested in breaking the status quo, my career combines corporate, entrepreneurial and volunteer experience.
I hold an MBA from the Richard Ivey School of Business and spent the first 15 years of my career in progressively senior roles in Canada and Europe working in financial services, home appliances and telecom. In 2003, I co-founded Spark Ideas to help brands, teams and individuals thrive. Spark started as a marketing strategy and consumer insights firm and added corporate coaching as a practice area in 2017. Spark’s client list has grown to 40+ companies, both B2C and B2B, in service industries, entertainment and not-for-profit organisations.
I work with my clients to identify and connect with their values and then develop goals that are aligned with those values. I believe in the power of systems and habits to achieve goals. I use a variety of tools and exercises to help change your perspective, get you unstuck and move forward in a positive way. A strong critical thinker and skilled communicator I help make sense of things and develop simple, straightforward solutions that work. And have fun along the way!
Outside of Spark I am a weekly volunteer with The Stop Community Food Centre and sit on the board of Tapestry Opera a not-for-profit, socially conscious arts organization. I love to eat, cook, travel and spend time in Austin.
Coaching with Jill has definitely changed my life. Jill is able to help me see my blind spots, to encourage my strengths and to help me take actionable steps toward what I want to achieve and experience in my life and business.Alyssa Bertram
