BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVE
RON MONTEIRO, CPA, CMA
I am a Senior Finance & Accounting professional with 20+ years of business experience. Throughout my career I have naturally gravitated towards training, coaching and mentoring experiences. This includes developing and teaching training courses, one-on-one coaching, and developing seminars and lectures (domestic and international) for small groups and audiences of up to 300 participants. I am a life-long learner and teacher, and my passions include coaching, building confidence and authentic leadership. I have a tremendous passion to help individuals develop into fantastic and team-first leaders in their professional and personal lives.
I grew up in Kenya where the educational focus was on building a very strong academic foundation with little emphasis on the importance of soft skills. When I moved to Canada, I had underdeveloped interpersonal and soft skills which was a significant hurdle to overcome during my University years and at the start of my career.
My turning point was the excellent training, development and mentorship that I had at Kraft Foods. I evolved from a shy individual who had good insights but lacked confidence to voice them into a confident business partner who relishes the opportunity to present my insights and opinions.
I now have a significant amount of experience presenting to executives and speaking to large audiences. My goal and dream is to share my story and provide practical tools and experiences with individuals and groups in order to help them grow and develop into productive, confident and fulfilled business partners.
