No Excuses

Victoria has never let circumstances stand in her way. Growing up in an abusive home until she was removed and later adopted, Victoria’s childhood was filled with abuse, sexual assault, and physical violence. But none of that has stopped her. Victoria has overcome tremendous odds to pursue a life of corporate success and leadership. It’s easy to let our circumstances stand in our way. But we don’t have to. Circumstances of our past only rob us of our future if we let them. Victoria chose not to let her circumstances be her excuses.

Unstoppable

By age 24, Victoria was offered her first executive role with a large, dynamic and fast paced organization. Yes, that’s dreadfully young to have such accountability and responsibility. It was her tenacity of spirit, her confidence that she could do the job, and her grit to see that she could rise to the occasion, empowered by the leaders around her that led to her success.

LGBTQ Positive

As a member of the LGBTQ community, Victoria knows about diversity and inclusion, and why one without the other is of little value. It’s not enough to have other voices at the table when those opinions aren’t being heard. Victoria’s messages have stemmed from her struggle, and success, in being accepted as a woman in the male dominated board room, and as a member of the LGBTQ community.

What People Are Saying

“Victoria is a prolific speaker, whose personal story carries so much strength, that she leaves her audience breathless and wanting more."

Miglena Nikolova
IBM Canada
“As a professional host/MC, entrepreneur, podcaster and investor, I get to work with and hear a lot of speakers. Victoria is most definitely a cut above. And her speech matters. It inspires everyone to recognise and own their personal journeys and pathways. It instills a sense of personal and collective pride in owning our individual talents. And it truly teaches us the meaning of resilience. You can hear a pin drop as the audience hangs on her every word. And then the energy shifts as she generously fielded the many questions from the floor - ranging from professional and personal career development, her own story of resilience to concerns about 'can we have it all'. Oh and over cocktails, you couldn't get close as she took the time with delegates, all keen to ask just one more question and everyone came away buzzing, inspired and curious for more. "

Founder and CEO, MC, Podcast Host
