WHO AM I?
I’m Fazeena Haniff, the mind behind The Conscious Communicator. I’m a Certified Professional Coach, communications expert, consultant and speaker based in the Toronto area. I help people and businesses turn the traditional way they look at communication upside down and show them how to build a rock-solid foundation for excellent communication from the inside-out.
When kids my age were talking about having dreams of becoming a doctor, astronaut, actor or athlete, I talked about communication. A lot.
I earned my Honours B.A. in Economics and Communication Studies and then went on to further my studies with a Post-Graduate Certificate in Corporate Communications. I took my training, determination and passion into the public and private sectors and turned it into a successful career as a communications specialist, advising and coaching senior leaders on all kinds of communications matters that included speech writing and training, media training, and handling dicey communications challenges with staff. Known for my ability to connect with others with ease and bring people together to achieve win-win solutions, I was awarded the Collaboration Award voted on by my peers.
I studied coaching and became certified through an intensive training program led by Institute of Professional Excellence in Coaching (iPEC) – one of the top ICF-recognized coach training schools in the world.
I’m a branch director in my community for Happy Healthy Women – one of the fastest growing women’s leadership groups in Canada with a mission to help women lead happier, healthier and more successful lives.
I run workshops for teams and businesses wanting to shake things up and learn a fresh, empowering approach to communication, and I speak at networking events, summits and conferences. I recently made my TV debut on Sueyensue Cottage Talk airing nationally on YES TV.
Here are some fun facts about me:
- I’m married to one handsome fella
- We’re big fans of the Toronto Raptors
- I’m a bit of a daredevil, but I can’t seem to wrap my head around skydiving just yet
- I’m in love with the elegance of calligraphy and have taken up learning the art
- I have a great many relatives; we could probably start a small country, and that isn’t a joke
- I’m driven to help others tap into the power of their unique voice to make a lasting impact
