Fabienne (Fab) Gordon, is an ICF certified professional life and career coach. Before coaching, she worked for firms of all sizes – from Silicon Valley startups to multinationals across Toronto. Throughout her career, she noticed that she gravitated towards facilitator roles, collaborative projects, and any opportunity where she could lead strategy sessions. Although she loves working with brands, she always had a dream to apply her strengths to people. This lead her to her IPEC certification and newfound dedication – bringing the power of coaching to her clients – through motivational workshops, corporate wellness, and personal sessions. Fab applied the Lifework model to her everyday life and she can't wait to share it with you.
