We are excited to announce a new collaboration between three Executive Coaches based on Vancouver Island, Canada.
Dave Brown, Sheldon Kitzul and Maartje Goodeve have teamed up to bring their combined experience, education and being to generate power and possibility in their communities.
Do you really know what you want from your life? Are you living your dreams or just wishing you’d win the lottery? 10 years ago Dave Brown, B.Eng. owner of B.E.S.T. Life Coaching, realized that there must be more to life than just earning a paycheck. And Dave understood that only one person had control over his life: himself. Dave decided to embark on a journey of discovery, to find what was a meaningful life to him.
Through his careers as an Engineer, Adult Educator, Volunteer and Executive Coach, in small business, corporations, university and government, and through his travels across Canada and to China, Dave has explored and experienced much of what the world has to offer. And Dave has explored the depths of his humanity.
For over a decade Dave has worked with, trained or coached corporate professionals, entrepreneurs, retirees, immigrants and individuals, all of whom have benefited from the diverse skill set and commitment to authenticity and top notch service that Dave brings wherever he goes. Dave brings full commitment and excellence to everything he does, and chose to distinguish himself by completing an intensive year long ICF Credentialed Executive Coach and Leadership Training Program with Accomplishment Coaching in Seattle, WA.
Dave is highly committed to working with leaders and growing his own leadership presence. Dave is involved with numerous community organizations including:
Professional Development Director (2012-2013), Young Professionals of Campbell River
Program Director (2012-2013), Campbell River Business and Professional Women’s Network
Director and Secretary (2012-2013), Campbell River Beacon Club
Leadership Coach (2012-2013), Leadership Vancouver Island
For more than 20 years now, my work is identifying people’s stories on their terms. Coaching provides an opportunity to make life-changing shifts full of possibility. It provides you with someone in your corner, to stand for your greatness and your authentic self; to become fully successful as who you are meant to be.
In 2002, I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Social Work at the University of Victoria. Since then, I have been committed to lifelong learning in all areas of my life.
My work career has primarily revolved around providing guidance, assistance and advocacy for those people in our society whom some would consider marginalized.
• Adolescent youth with disabilities in our education system;
• Adults with mental illness;
• Intake counselor/housing coordinator;
• Executive oversight to an organization providing addiction recovery services; and
• Policy and research projects (child welfare and food policy) both Government and University.
In 2009, I begin to re-examine how I was doing life this way and where I wanted to go in the future. I hired my own coach and, as a result of that inward journey, started this practice where you can use me to discover Your Life, Your Story on Your Terms.
My work provides inspiration for clients with my energy and enthusiasm. As someone close to me said, “When most people would have given up, you pick yourself up day after day and keep going. I’ve never seen such determination and perseverance, and I feel motivation for my own projects by watching your unwillingness to give up.”
I bring understanding and compassion, persistence and interaction to my work and in challenging clients to go deeper into how and why they think and work the way they do.
I am committed to your success – at work, in relationship and in life. You can expect these results from working with me:
• Creating your life with new purpose, direction and focus.
• Project-based work;
• Growth based on your commitments and values;
• Higher productivity;
When you are your authentic self, you have no competition.
I’m a bit of a “wild child”. My life’s journey in combination with my training and professional experience allow me to be a powerful coach for people, organizations and businesses going through transitions of their own, increasing access to their own authentic power, talents and visions and moving powerfully into this new space. To lead their own lives rather than living the life others expect. My passion is for people to reclaim their own authentic power and to live their lives in alignment with their highest values, talents, skills and commitments.
I've lived in 7 different countries on 3 different continents since I was 4 years old and I'm multilingual. I've traveled for work and for pleasure and intend to continue this for as many years as possible. I am mother to tween and teen sons and totally get the juggling act of parenting, work and looking after my own well-being so that I can be the best of me in every area of life.
I co-owned my first business (a catering company that catered to film and TV production) when I was 19 after several years of hotel middle-management training. In 1995 I received a B.A. with honours in Drama Therapy in the Netherlands. Since then I have coached and counseled individuals and families through changes, toward goals, and those undergoing an intercultural move. In 2003 I became a perinatal assistant, allowing me to counsel and coach families throughout the stages of pregnancy and the first year with baby. I am an affiliate coach with Accomplishment Coaching. Their rigorous training, powerful commitment to the quality of coaching professionals and leadership and their high ethical standards meet my desire to provide my clients with the very best coaching possible.
