Irene is a leadership development/human resources professional with over 30 years of experience in an international Irene-headshotbusiness setting. Having significant experience in developing and delivering leadership development globally, she has facilitated leadership groups from front line emerging to mid-level leaders, while retaining an appreciation of the impact of languages and cultural sensitivities.

She is a bi-lingual facilitator who holds coaching as a particular passion and also enjoys working with new leaders to help them enhance their skills, facilitate problem-solving & address behavioral challenges.

Irene connects with the audience by offering what she calls her key ‘gifts’ to everyone with whom she works: her natural inclination to support and coach others (quickly sharing feedback and setting up growth opportunities), a drive to always fully understand the crux of a problem and therefore act as a true sounding board, and always looking for opportunities to inject fun and humor into a conversation.

Outside of work, Irene is a local language coach for refugees. She also enjoys (fun) facts about wine, and is an avid wine collector. And she says to stay in shape despite the wine, she’s a fond golfer and Pilates fan and has started taking drum lessons.
