Why to build your thought leadership?
Gone are the days in which CEOs and founders can expect to remain a faceless, behind-the-scenes force of the company. Think Richard Branson, Elon Musk, Jeff Bezos. Within a dynamic industry landscape, CEOs across all verticals are stepping up to become the driving market force behind their brand, openly advocating for their company’s values, culture, and intellectual capital.
A company’s brand is often an extension of their chief executive’s reputation. As a CEO, you’re committed to the long-game. Positioning yourself as an industry thought leader will give your company a sought-after voice, create a competitive edge, build customer loyalty and ultimately boost revenue.
Effective thought leadership establishes a company as both customer-focused and innovative while demonstrating a clear sense of direction and industry expertise. An active thought leadership strategy can even act as the catalyst that helps CEOs to test new ideas.
We work with CEOs and key senior people to outline a few potential topics for panels, keynote speeches, and secure speaking opportunities at events that target their industry. We help our clients host a live Q&A in the office or host a free workshop, and invite key members of the media, influencers and VIP customers. Small intimate events can have a big payoff in terms of securing brand advocacy, and natural social media extension through captured content.
A recurring Q+A over Zoom with a company founder through live streaming is a great way to connect with wide audience without the extra travel time and logistics. New and existing customers will love learning about emerging trends, favourite products, and any opportunity to provide feedback and insights on future products and company development.

“Too many leadership coaches and consultants are eager to tell you what to do to try to prove how smart they are. That’s not Nadira. She possesses a rare combination of skills – coach, cheerleader, communication & emotional intelligence expert – and masterfully transitions between those roles to guide you where you need to go professionally and personally. And she does it with warmth, humour and just the right amount of nudging and tough love when required to keep you on track to achieving the goals you’ve set for yourself and your team.”
“Nadira is a talented, intuitive, gentle and direct coach who will challenge you to achieve your potential. She will help you set concrete and measurable goals and will follow up to help with progress and accountability. Nadira is sensitive to non-verbal cues and is direct in asking permission to offer her observations. She is a true partner on your journey of discovery and success. Her fluency in several languages positions her well for multicultural engagements.”
“J’ai beaucoup apprécié de travailler avec Nadira sur mes objectifs professionnels et personnels. Elle m’a aidé à comprendre comment mon processus de pensée et mes croyances pouvaient ralentir ma progression, et elle m’a aidé à élaborer des stratégies pour progresser vers mes objectifs avec une sensibilisation accrue. Elle a un sens de l’écoute développé et m’a encouragé à développer une multitude de perspectives sur les événements de ma vie quotidienne. Les séances étaient ciblées et concrètes avec des objectifs clairs pour chaque semaine. Nadira est un coach de talent qui sait partager ses dons avec ses clients et qui leur donne les moyens d’aller de l’avant..”
“Not only the content of Nadira’s workshop was highly appreciated but the tips and exercises she choose were very useful too. Moreover, Nadira has a great energy and her enthusiasm is contagious! She has a real ability to engage the audience and her dynamic way to run this event was quite appreciated by the 60 demanding manager participants. Finally, it was easy and pleasant to organise training with Visionary Voices and I would be very happy to do it again next year!”
As women leaders, we have few if any opportunities to go deep in a supported, safe, confidential environment. Hiring Nadira as my coach was a fantastic investment into myself as a leader. Not only did she help me uncover my blind spots as well as my strengths, working with Nadira gave me the tools and the space to reflect deeply on what I wanted to change in the company’s culture, as well as in my career and vision. Our deep coaching conversations helped me navigate with success some pivotal moments of the company’s growth trajectory. If you’re ready for true transformation, if you’re ready to face the shadows that limit you and embrace your greatest strengths, Nadira is the coach for you.
I had the opportunity to attend Nadira’s workshop on leadership. Her talk was excellent, captivating and a very great learning for the audience. She is, no doubt, a great advisor when it comes to leadership skills’ development.
Nadira helped my professional development tremendously, with visible improvements in my interactions with peers and leaders. Specialized in soft skills and emotional intelligence, she equips clients with highly effective practical tools applicable at work and in personal life. Nadira gets my highest recommendation as an executive and management coach.
