Vanessa Judelman

Vanessa Judelman, President

Sought-after author, coach and facilitator Vanessa Judelman has helped thousands of people to become more self-aware, confident leaders.

Vanessa is the author of the book Mastering Leadership: What it Takes to Lead in Today’s Fast Paced World. She is noted as an expert in her industry and has been published and quoted in The Globe and Mail, the National Post and is a contributor to CKNW Radio.

Prior to starting Mosaic People Development in 2011, Vanessa was in leadership positions in several organizations. She intimately understands what leaders struggle with and the difficulties they encounter every day. She knows that leadership can be rewarding and understands that it can also be extremely stressful and challenging.

For this reason, Vanessa is passionate about developing leaders who have the tools they need to be happy and productive. For almost two decades, Vanessa has been developing her “secret sauce”. She knows that there is a science to developing leaders and has created a proven formula to develop results-oriented leaders who feel empowered and confident to do their job.

Vanessa loves to give back. In a volunteer capacity, she is the co-chair of the Toronto South African Film Festival. The festival has raised thousands of dollars for Education without Borders, a charity that provides educational opportunities for kids living in impoverished areas of South Africa.

Vanessa also enjoys spending time with her two sons and her husband. She loves to read, travel, eat sushi and enjoy all the arts and culture that Toronto has to offer!
