Hi, I'm Vanessa.
Over the past 20 years, I, have trained and coached thousands of people across the globe!
These leaders have become high-performing executives, have been promoted into more senior roles, and have been achieving great results with their teams.
I am very passionate about working with leaders and giving them the tools they need to be more self-aware, team focussed, and strategic!
Wondering how to pronounce my name: Vanessa Judelman?
Listen to this short clip to hear how it’s pronounced.
How did I become a passionate leadership trainer and coach?
Early in my career, I worked at a global consulting company developing leaders all over the world. It was in this company that my deep passion for leadership development was first born.
I was able to see first-hand that a more skilled leader equals happier teams and better results.
I have also worked “in the trenches” as a leader building teams and learning to get results through other people. These leadership positions gave me the hands-on experience which formed the foundation of all of my programs. Everything that I teach, I have practiced myself as a leader.
Since founding Mosaic People Development in 2011, I have been fortunate enough to work with thousands of amazing people.
Watching them emerge into talented leaders has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.
But I have also witnessed many leaders who struggle.
Leadership can be really challenging.
Plus, so many leaders get promoted into leadership positions without any formal training and so they lack the tools to succeed.
But the good news is that leaders are not born, rather they are “made” and developed.
This is where I come in.
Everything I teach I have practiced myself as a leader. So, while leadership can be challenging…it doesn’t have to be!
I’d love to help you and your team navigate the world of leadership and help you develop a results-driven organization.
Let’s talk about how you, or the leaders in your organization, can grow, develop and enhance their skills.
I can help you, or the leaders in your organization, to inspire great results by learning to:
- Avoid the common mistakes made by leaders who don’t have formal training
- Address the key challenges that typically hold leaders back
- Apply and implement practical leadership tools and strategies to enhance their leadership effectiveness

Denise Roberts, Senior Learning and Development Partner at Star Media Group
Vanessa ran one of the best online and in-person training I’ve ever done in my career. The focus on discussion and dialogue allows me to learn through scenarios and real-time situations. The conversations were deep and allowed me to apply concepts directly to situations on my team. Vanessa is a enthusiastic facilitator and coach who probs and challenges everyone to look at situations differently and approach leadership with empathy and humility. I enjoyed every class and conversations throughout the whole course.
Mastering Leadership is not just training – it’s a mindset. The course helped me identify my areas of weakness and gave me the tools to grow. Vanessa is one of the most self-aware, authentic, and charismatic people I’ve met. She’s one of those people that builds rapport in a matter of minutes simply by being confident and genuine. Anyone who works with Vanessa will find themselves with an invaluable set of skills, and also an invaluable friend.
I’ve gone through a couple of leadership training programs in the past, and they were never really that helpful. Needless to say, I was skeptical! However, the Mosaic course and Vanessa’s coaching were EXCELLENT! The information was easily relatable, and Vanessa’s insightful and personal approach to working with us made it so simple to apply the new techniques within our own teams. I’m very happy to have taken this course, and have asked for this to be offered to even more people in our company!
