Sylvana Caloni is a leadership coach and facilitator of peer advisory circles. She is a Professional Certified Coach with the International Coach Federation, an Expert-in-Residence at the Imperial Enterprise Lab, and a mentor at Regent’s University.
Sylvana co-authored, Humble Crumbles: Savouring the crumbs of wisdom from the rise and fall of Humble Pie. This work starts a conversation and enquiry with budding entrepreneurs and executives transitioning from the corporate world, to shift their relationship to failure and to appreciate the importance of attention, self-awareness, and practice.
A pathbreaker, Sylvana was the first female equity analyst and portfolio manager at Bankers Trust Australia where she rose to the ranks of Executive Vice President. She travelled extensively in Australasia, US, Europe, and Latin America to investigate investment opportunities. Sylvana has deep insight into what makes executives and their companies successful across different industries, geographies and from start-up to multi-national conglomerates. She blends the insights from the fast-paced financial services world and leading-edge training on executive learning and development to best address her client’s needs and aspirations. Sylvana has had leadership roles in several organisations including Women in Banking and Finance (WIBF) and the International Women’s Forum (IWF-UK).
Sylvana partners with high potential executives on a promotion track, with recently promoted executives and with established leaders. They are successful and often experts in their fields, yet they are less accomplished at navigating the different learning, working and communication styles of their colleagues. As an Italian-Australian living in London, Sylvana is versed in change, cultural diversity, and multiple perspectives. She assists her clients to appreciate and harness the nuances of their team members’ talents. Her clients become more flexible leaders, able to listen more deeply and to have conversations that create greater understanding and collaboration.
