Greece 

Hailing from a small town in Greece and with a modest middle-class background, Sophia always knew she wanted more than she saw around her during childhood.

Whilst attending a school converted from a prison complex, replete with graffiti encrusted walls and converted cells for classrooms, Sophia was determined to break free, travel the world, and enjoy the good things in life. 

It was no easy task. Most of the young men and women who surrounded Sophia during those years were destined to lives of mediocrity. Teenage pregnancy was common among the girls. And many of the boys were destined for low-paid manual labor or lives fueled by drugs, alcohol and violence.

On the rare occasions she spoke openly about her dreams, she'd be laughed at and ridiculed by her friends. Only those who knew Sophia well understood she was different in one very important way - she was willing to work hard to get what she wanted.

True enough, Sophia passed her exams with flying colors and moved to the UK to attend University. There she met her future husband, Otto, before graduating with a Masters degree in International Business Finance and entering the banking industry for the first time.

Over a career spanning fifteen years, Sophia proved her worth and climbed the corporate ladder at lightning pace - reaching the position of Vice President for the Regional Operations Office in Dubai for a global banking brand.

But despite a great job, substantial income, a stunning house in an exotic location (she's lived in the UK, Switzerland and Dubai, among other places), Sophia found herself stressed out and unfulfilled.

Something was missing. The demands of work meant she wasn't spending enough time with her two young children, and all the money in the world couldn't replace the feeling of emptiness that began to set in during the morning commute.

So Sophia made the second scariest decision of her life (after having children!). She chose to quit banking and start a business of her own as a coach and consultant, using the expertise she developed during her career to help others strive for their dreams and find fulfillment in their lives.

Sophia went on to become a qualified life coach with a degree in Life Coaching Skills and Practice from Newcastle College, UK, and became a Board Member of the Dubai Chapter of the International Coach Federation (ICF). Sophia has also been trained and mentored by best-selling author and legendary personal development figure, Bob Proctor - best known for his role in The Secret.

Now, Sophia is a High Performance Coach, working with C-Level Executives and business people who want to achieve significant change in their careers and lives. She does this by empowering her clients with the focus, insight and accountability they need to rise to the top of their game and achieve the consistent results they demand. 

An expert on Personal Branding, Sophia also offers a range of online programs to help corporate professionals and entrepreneurs transform the way others see them, to get more recognition, climb the corporate ladder more quickly, or dramatically expand their businesses. 

As a speaker and writer, Sophia is in demand across the globe. She has spoken recently at the International Careers Fair in India, to the Manchester Business School in the UK, and has been interviewed for television, print and radio media in the UAE. 

Sophia contributes regularly to a range of high-profile success-focused publications, including Esquire, Entrepreneur, and Success Magazine - and also writes a monthly column for Arabian Business. Yet through it all, Sophia still manages to spend quality time with her family and two young children!

Sophia's mission is to empower men and women across the globe to reach the top of their game and create lives of abundance, fulfillment and purpose - a mission she can only achieve by helping YOU to do more, be more, and have more.
