This program is the result of a collaboration between Cassandra Goodman and Richard Brisebois.

She is a coach, consultant and author who specialises in empowering big-hearted people to be true to themselves.
Through her coaching, training, speaking and writing Cassandra empowers and inspires people to close the gap between who they really are, and how they work as a catalyst for the co-creation of workplaces where people and performance can sustainably thrive.
