Cyril challenges people's current work habits to dramatically improve not only their own job satisfaction and work-life balance but also their company's performance and bottom line.

Cyril's deep understanding of senior executives and their teams has shown that most people have never been taught to work. We are committed to our jobs but we do not always work effectively. We work hard but not always smart.

In his hands-on, practical and inspiring sessions, Cyril projects his passion and enthusiasm to his audience, challenging their thinking and creating a mind-shift from what he calls 'reactive manager to proactive leader'.

Cyril moved to Australia in 2001 and in 2006 he began providing efficiency solutions to millions around the world. What began with one-on-one effectiveness coaching for senior executives grew to coaching leadership teams and training small to large groups of individuals.

Cyril and his team deliver highly successful customised efficiency solutions to clients all around the world as well as some of Australia's largest companies, including Westpac Bank, AMP, the Commonwealth Bank, Dexus Property Group and SingTel Optus.
