About Valerie Bennett-Lewis

As the President and Owner of VBL Consulting Leadership Development and Executive Coaching, my focus is to motivate and inspire executives, new managers and business owners to become better communicators, influencers and leaders.

With over 25 years of leadership and coaching experience, I bring a wide range of skills and expertise to my leadership consulting practice. I understand the importance of strong leadership to develop an environment of trust and maintain productive relationships in the workplace. I challenge my clients to think and lead differently. I’m passionate about helping my clients uncover those roadblocks that get in the way of their personal development.

I’m recognized for outstanding interpersonal abilities and skills to engage with a broad range of business executives across various industries.

I’m especially skilled in the areas of emotional intelligence, effective communication, team dynamics, and conflict management.

My leadership experiences and understanding of leadership principles enables me to offer insightful and challenging coaching to help my clients to move into action.

I hold a BA in Sociology with a focus on Human Relations and MPA from the University of San Francisco in Health Services Administration, along with leadership certifications from UC Berkeley Center for Executive Education and Kaiser Permanente Advance Management and Executive Leadership Programs.

Being active in my community is extremely important to me. I maintain active roles as a business leadership mentor coach for upcoming executives of the Women Unlimited, Inc program and maintain leadership positions in the Antioch Chamber of Commerce, Rotary Club of the Delta, BNI (Business Network International), Compass Mentoring Academy and co-host of Masterminds of Business, a business and leadership improvement podcast.
