Dave Veale, Founder & CEO, Vision Coaching
Dave’s journey into coaching began more than 15 years ago as he worked as an advisor to HR leaders. While working closely with human resources professionals, it became clear to him that there was a need for leadership coaching at all levels of management in small, medium and large organizations – and Dave’s clients were asking him for coaching.

In response to this growing demand, Dave trained in executive coaching at Royal Roads University, received his professional coaching designation from the International Coach Federation, and in 2005 founded Vision Coaching Inc., which has emerged as one of Canada’s top leadership firms with a top roster of experienced, credentialed coaches who share Dave’s vision and passion for coaching leaders.
