Supporting emerging & existing leaders, assisting newcomers to build a strong Canadian future.

Bhavini immigrated as a young child with her sister and parents, who were 2-time immigrants. She experienced firsthand the journey of newcomers to Canada with limited resources for support, racial inequities and barriers. She also witnessed many struggles of the job searching process that family and friends were faced with. 

Some of those challenges became motivating factors behind her pursuit of continuous learning and creating a business providing support to the next generation of Canadians. Solutions focused on leadership development, empowering women & newcomers. 

Her expertise in Operations Management delivers results, efficient processes and strategy planning to new business owners or to organizations considering a re-vamp of their existing practices. 

Building a strong Canadian future is one of our guiding principles. Combining life experiences with leadership lessons & continuing education to pay it forward is a priority for Be a Leader.  

We empower clients with practical tools & solutions that can be put into daily practice.
