Vanessa Chehlawi, based in Toronto, is an active member of the Leadership Advisory Practice. She leverages her experience in advising clients on solving leadership challenges, and developing their teams, themselves, and their organization’s culture.

What energizes me most is working with people and striving to understand what deeply motivates them. My goal is to help organizations and individuals thrive through leadership and development advice.

Prior to joining Egon Zehnder, Vanessa was an Engagement Manager at McKinsey & Company.
