Claude Silver:  Chief Heart Officer, VaynerMedia, International Speaker

I’m an emotional optimist, coach, manager, and mentor. As the first ever Chief Heart Officer it is my great honor to lead at VaynerMedia. I work for 800 Humans, and I am in touch with the heartbeat of every single person in the company. My role is to infuse the Agency with Empathy. It’s my purpose.
Culture is a texture. It’s a vibe. A feel. And culture is alive. It’s definitely not one or two-dimensional—I think culture is very three-dimensional. Culture is, in a nutshell, the heartbeat for me. It is something that absolutely lights up an entire system — if it is in place, and if it is thriving.

Rebecca-Monique Williams: Business and Personal Coach

Before recently embarking on a new professional venture as a Business and Personal Coach, Rebecca-Monique acquired over ten years of PeopleOps experience – in stand-alone roles and leading small teams in VC-backed tech start-ups – where she built out and scaled People functions from scratch to support plans for hyper growth.

During her career as a People leader she was responsible for collaboratively designing, implementing and iterating holistic people-first processes, frameworks, guides and experiences spanning the entire employee lifecycle; including hiring, onboarding, and the growth & development of individuals and teams.

Following weeks of introspection, Rebecca-Monique discovered that her role left her a few too many steps removed from fulfilling her professional purpose of directly enabling individuals to actualise their unique potential, so she decided to pursue coaching in a full-time capacity.

Rebecca-Monique delivers training and services to businesses that champion and foster the benefits a coaching organisation.

She also coaches private clients in areas such as enhancing emotional intelligence, building confidence, and overcoming grief.

“I am me, and you are you; respectively, that is our superpower….In order to truly coach, we must hold individuals with ‘unconditional positive regard’, listen to understand, and ask generative questions to unlock new thinking. There’s a saying that if you want to explore anything in life, one must first look to the origin. I’m curious about people’s values, needs, and motivations and wants; the stuff at the core, but sometimes beneath the surface. I provide that psychologically safe space for individuals to bring their authentic selves, and together we can explore a plethora of possibilities. It’s my hope that after every interaction, they develop a greater sense of mobility to tackle their personal and professional challenges head on, and see those challenges not as problems, but as puzzles.”

Kevin Monroe: Founder, X Factor Consulting, Host of Higher Purpose Podcast

Business can be a force for good. I’m wired for purpose. And, purpose is the lens through which I view the world. I believe Purpose is transforming the world of work and business, in fact, I host an entire podcast exploring this topic. Those leading the way are purpose-powered, people-focused, and values-based.

I partner with CEOs to create world-class workplace cultures that maximize employee flourishing and fulfillment. These workplaces welcome love and eliminate fear. I operate at the intersection of faith, business, and purpose. My desire is to do work that is truly transformational in its impact. My experiences in ministry provide me with an ability to do soul care for the people I serve. My experiences in business allow him to connect to business people in a way that understands the challenges of business and relate to the pressures you face as a business owner. As a practitioner of Servant Leadership and Appreciative Inquiry, I seek to understand what it is that you want to accomplish and work collaboratively to co-create amazing results.
