Sandrine Gressard, President | Miss Success Instigator
Sandrine Gressard joined Organik in the Spring of 2017. She brings to the table 25 years of experience running companies and managing teams. Her expertise lies mainly in business development, but having worked in 6 different industries, she brings a broader set of skills to Organik.
Sandrine’s mission is to help Organik’s customers reach success, whatever that means to each of them.
Apart from developing Organik, Sandrine is our main Business Coach. Indeed, she trains entrepreneurs and business leaders to instigate success in their organisations.
However, she doesn’t do this like everyone else. She brings in a health element in the form or hiking. Each coaching session contains some form of physical activity (walking, hiking, breathing, stretching) which sends oxygen to the brain, improves decision making and considerably refines problem-solving skills.
Her leadership doesn’t stop with Organik. She is also on the Board of directors of the Development Fund of the ERSM (Ecole Rudolf Steiner de Montréal) and First Vice Chair of the Royal Air Cadets of Canada 690 Lakeshore Squadron.
She chose to give her time and expertise to these two organisations out of passion for children’s healthy and sustainable development.
When Sandrine isn’t busy instigating success in companies or non-for-profits, she enjoys restoring old aircraft, flying gliders and scuba diving. This mom of 2 has no idea what boredom is.
Her biggest passion is to live… fully and constantly.
She can be reached at [first name] at [this website].
