This enables Cynthia’s clients to see more opportunities, more possibilities and greater potential in themselves.

Cynthia’s mission is to create global unity through enabling insights & challenging long-held cultural, societal and individual beliefs, at scale. Driven by the energy that connects us all, a belief in freedom in all forms and a knowing of limitless potential, I help others achieve this too.

In addition, Cynthia regularly participates in coaching events supporting the MicroLoan Foundation and mental health charities.
Question & Answer With Cynthia
Best book recommendation and why?
I have many more to read to be able to truly suggest one here, but for now I recommend the Chimp Paradox by Prof. Steve Peters. This book describes, in a way that is easy to understand, how the brain works in relation to our behaviours. It helps the reader to understand their own behaviours better, thereby raising self-awareness which is key to strong personal leadership.
What’s your ‘Why’?
I am passionate about people reaching their potential, professionally and personally. I know & am change and I will help my clients make change happen. I’m driven by freedom and that is what I help my clients achieve.
Through my past corporate work, I have had the opportunity to have encounters with Bill Clinton and the Dalai Lama. Both encounters, although brief, taught me an incredible amount about Leadership and the power of a real ability to connect with people, and very different ways to achieve the same.
I absolutely love dogs, and of course our Jack Russell, Luna. Dolphins, however, are my spirit animal.
Best way to use free time?
Being outdoors, simply being still or reading. I love being outdoors in nature, going on long hikes, or bike rides. I also love outdoor exercise like running and cycling. I have competed in triathlons and even had a 10-year stint in football, which was a real passion of mine. Reading is something we should all do more of, as it can inspire great new ideas when we are able to really assimilate the information we read. Being still allows for the assimilation and fusion of ideas to create new ideas.
