We are excited to announce our newest Associate in the Montreal area.
As a third-generation entrepreneur, George’s dedication to business comes quite naturally. The son of a self-made Greek immigrant, he recalls often being told “You have to be your own boss, son.” Those words stuck with him through his time spent working with, and learning about business from some of the best names in the corporate tech sector, such as Nortel, NEC and Future Electronics. George brought the lessons learned in the corporate world to his own retail and online business, which he grew from three to over ten employees, while doubling sales. After managing that business for 10 years, he sold it to focus his attention on business coaching.
His experiences working in the tech sector and as an entrepreneur have proven invaluable to his career as a business coach. To complement his real-world experience, George has completed International Coaching Federation coaching certification with the renown Erickson College.
George’s sense of community goes beyond the business world. As a mentor and volunteer, George gives generously of his time and talents to the non-profit group Toastmasters, where he shares his passion for public speaking and leadership training. George has served in many leadership roles in this organization, from Founder and President of The Laval Achievers Club to the Director of Division F, serving and managing over 25 clubs and several hundred members.
George works one on one with executives and business leaders in a broad range of industries, including pharma, fashion, advertising, consulting and aerospace. He also shares his experience and knowledge through motivational and instructive group workshops and keynote speeches. “Helping entrepreneurs and corporations learn how to leverage modern, science based coaching techniques to exponentially improve their performance is my passion.”
