If you are in need of a dynamic and powerful keynote speaker, then look no further... Cindy Stradling is the lady for your next event! I listened to Cindy keynote at her annual Women’s Conference and also at our 35th Anniversary Toastmaster’s dinner. Both times, I was captivated by her powerful storytelling, delightful humour and skillful audience engagement style. She is an inspiring keynote speaker, trainer, and facilitator and she will leave your audience uplifted and wanting more. As a fellow speaker, I can truly say that Cindy is an absolute pleasure to work with and I could not recommend her any higher.

For the past 3 months I have consciously committed to be present, be still and be silent and observe my surroundings and energies of people I’m interacting with to better manage my reactions to others.  A work in progress – Thanks Cindy for the follow up.

As a result of my participation in Cindy’s coaching program I have re-examined my career goals.  Thanks to this introspective approach and coaching from Cindy, I have been able to determine where my real passion lies and am in the process of getting into action to turn this desire into reality.  The step-by-step approach brings about small but important change that over time makes a significant impact. This has been an ongoing path of discovery that I recommend to anyone who wonders if this is it or is there more to life. Thank you Cindy for your patience and support.”

3 Months after attending THRIVE I have been fairly consistent with my daily ritual to recharge, although I had to tweak it a bit from my initial intention.  I have been more conscious of feelings and reminding myself that I am in control.

In experiencing the coaching routine, I have a more in-depth understanding of the word accomplishments. For me, working on a daily basis to recognize, has been more beneficial.  It allows for easier change and shifting with hope of it becoming a more natural occurrence without having to track it.  Understood how our “circumstances” of life can cause any disruption of our “staying on track”.  It is working within those circumstances and going through them to continue to be on track where we do not become discouraged.  This is where knowing you can wake up the next day and begin again.  Tracking daily allowed me to catch a glimpse of how flat I was really living my life.

Cindy and I ‘met’ when she sent a note out to her community on behalf of one of her colleagues (kindly forwarded to me by a shared connection) looking for coach/facilitators. Cindy walks her talk! Upon seeing my response, she looked up my Linked In profile, invited me to connect and have a call to get acquainted. I felt an immediate connection with her, appreciating her energy, enthusiasm and wonderful sense of humour. I was in the midst of my business planning and had been looking for a coach to challenge me in my thinking and before the end of that call, asked Cindy if she would be that person. Cindy brings a unique balance of directness and compassion to our conversations. She generously shares her wisdom gleaned from her longstanding business success and life experience, and readily connects me with others in her community who may be able to offer perspective on a given topic. I am so grateful for the way Cindy has challenged me to think differently about my business and honoured to be in a shared community with her.

Coaching with Cindy Stradling has been a lifesaver, and a life changer. Working with her has given me structure, accountability and better follow through. I am meeting deadlines, finishing projects, and learning to plan! Instead of jumping from crisis to crisis, I feel like I’m accomplishing important life tasks. I wish I had found Cindy sooner.
