Sophie Francis

Sophie Francis is a coach, communication consultant and content designer who helps individuals and organisations discover and communicate their value. By playing to their strengths they can put their best self forward and design a sustainable business, website or brand.

Sophie has a Master in Business Coaching from the University of Wollongong’s Sydney Business School and is a certified Strengths Profile practitioner. Co-author of “Working with Strengths in Coaching” in The Sage Handbook of Coaching, she has researched how people draw on their strengths during challenging situations to find greater fulfilment.

Sophie has helped thought leaders in positive psychology, leadership and learning to market their brands and make an impact in the world. She helped found a coaching and culture change consultancy, where she managed 100+ learning and development initiatives to improve communication, leadership and performance. She also juggled hats as proposal writer, web developer and problem solver in the transition from shoe-string startup to global catalyst.

Before working with organisations, Sophie helped write and edit two best-selling books. Together with the expert/author team, she laid out a blueprint for optimistic living, nurturing the manuscripts from kernels to carefully crafted manifestos. She also supported a depression initiative for individuals, families and health professionals. This mission-driven project built on her lifelong fascination with the way our mind, body, brain and social systems evolved to work best.

Canberra-based, Melbourne-bred, Sophie feels most at home exploring game-changing ideas and empowering people to make them happen.
