The Centre for Spirituality at Work

The Friends' House, Downtown Toronto


So much is being said about spirituality in the workplace. But if you want to make a major shift from work or a workplace that seems soul-less, how do you find support and guidance for such a deeply felt transition? Especially given present workplace expectations and perceptions of success. Ann Coombs was an international corporate consultant for 24+ years. To sustain her soul, and to follow her calling, Ann has changed her consulting practice, client base and framework. Join Ann as she shares her experiences and the tools she used: the gifts of intuition and discernment as the keys to listening and understanding transition and a calling. This is a unique opportunity to discuss with an acclaimed consultant the barriers and the real fears that arise when dealing with toxic environments, new language, and stepping into the unknown.

ANN COOMBS ( is an internationally recognized Thought Leader, Futurist, Author and Facilitator. Her corporate clients included AT&T, Xerox, Bank of Montreal, Procter & Gamble, to name just a few. Ann wrote the national bestseller 'The Living Workplace' (2001, Harper Collins) with the Foreword by Sir John Marks Templeton. Her ongoing articles have been published by Franklin Covey and, and she publishes a thought provoking newsletter about creating "living workplaces", read by 250,000 people worldwide.
