Looking for a speaker for your next event? Meet Vafa.
Vafa moved to the UK from Shiraz with her family when she was just 16 years old. It was not long after the Iranian revolution of 1979 which saw sweeping regime change and a seismic shift in Iranian culture.
Like most immigrants, her parents sought a better life for their children and Vafa didn't disappoint. She completed her higher education in Cardiff and built a 25 year career within the NHS helping others, until she burnt out whilst conforming to societal rules and expectations, putting herself and her needs last.
Now, she's focusing her energies helping professionals like you, challenging you to re-assess your beliefs & assumptions, your values & the identity you're basing your current lifestyle upon. When she speaks, she'll motivate you to connect with your core values, embrace choicefulness, define your boundaries and step into your authentic power.
"Vafa's inspiring presentation helped spark positivity amongst the group. The high energy presentation was well crafted, thought provoking and motivated the audience to design first steps towards action." J Osborne
Vafa's talk is an interesting walk through her story and why she believes examining your beliefs and setting life goals that are congruent to your core values would stop life 'happening to you'. Instead, you will become the author of your life and the role models your children and your team deserve.
As a mother and personal development coach, Vafa understands the importance of providing a safe and nurturing space for your children and your team to journey through life, so they develop essential life skills they were never taught at school and become the leaders of their own lives; life skills after all are business, professional and leadership skills. That journey starts with YOU leading from your authentic power. Children and your team do what you do, not what you tell them to do!
"One's mind, stretched to a new idea, never goes back to its original dimension." Oliver Wendell Holmes
