Even as a child in the Netherlands, Yvonne was active in church activities. Later, assimilating new languages and lifestyles as a young mother travelling the globe with her family, the enterprising achiever found that supporting organizations, volunteering to run their events was the perfect way to contribute to her ever-changing kaleidoscope of communities.
Eventually putting down permanent roots in Calgary, Alberta, Yvonne was intrigued by the opportunity to become the managing director for the local chapter of eWomenNetwork, a community of accomplished heart-centered entrepreneurs, trainers, and speakers. Now, with an active role in connecting businesswomen, watching their confidence soar as they joyously embraced their own authentic magnificence, Yvonne became passionate about supporting the brilliant thought leaders out there making that impactful difference.
In her subsequent role at Make Your Mark Consulting, managing their longer multiple-day events, Yvonne realized her true superpowers lay in expertly acing all the behind-the-scenes logistics from pre-event meetings and laser coaching sessions to facilitating more sales. Nothing thrills her more than watching that glorious transformation that occurs when a roomful of virtual strangers initially reserved and uncertain of what to expect are gradually united, energized, and inspired to new heights of limitless possibility!
Leaving you as the star speaker free and clear to shine your light and ignite the overall energy, Yvonne Basten is the one you want to amplify your next event, the proverbial wind beneath your wings.
