Thank you for a wonderful session. Great fun and highly productive! You have a great ease with facilitating these sessions, which is very unusual. I know you put it down to your TD type, but it is also highly personal and unique to you. Sue

Sylvia was born and bred in Glasgow and left school with excellent qualifications, pursued a career in nursing, midwifery and intensive care and was rapidly promoted to ‘Theatre Sister’ in Open Heart Surgery.
With an intense interest in health and nutrition she started her own Health Food business and ran an independent shop and a franchise in House of Fraser, Glasgow.
After a move to the south of England, Sylvia worked for several years in sales in the Pharmaceutical Industry where she had excellent training in sales/marketing and presenting.
This led her into ‘Industrial Motivation Ltd’ where she regularly ran breakfast meetings for senior executives followed by presentations to their board of directors and subsequent motivational campaigns within their organisations.
After a family career break Sylvia took on the role of Business Development Director for a finance company and it was during that time that she discovered the power of networking which led her to her role of National Sales Director for The Athena Network.
Sylvia’s Quote –
“Investing in the Athena Network was the best business decision I have ever made. I am constantly surrounded by the most incredible women who are inspiring each other to phenomenal success. I wanted to make a difference and I am absolutely blown away by the impact my Athena groups have had!”
My training and accreditation with ‘Talent Dynamics’ considerably augments my current skills and enables me to guide individuals, teams and organisations to greater ‘Flow’.
In ‘Flow’ – trust, communication and performance accelerate, and a team or a whole enterprise becomes a joy to work in as people, teams and enterprises start making massive breakthroughs in performance and profits.
