"Our Summer University ran in a collaboration with the Munich BusinessSchool. We had a very diverse line-up of speakers: HR professionals, consultants, corporate change agents, and academics. Sylvia had time-wise a challenging spot: right after lunch and a morning full of intense long power-point presentations which had taken their toll on some of the guests in the audience. Yet ‘nodding-off’ was no option with Sylvia Becker-Hill as our international special guest speaker. Dressed in a raincoat and masked with big sunglasses she stormed the stage.
Playing the ‘ICF-Police’ Sylvia yelled in staccato provocative ideas which made the minds burn with curiosity. Without anyone knowing she had enrolled a few guests into participation and had them prepared upfront. While Sylvia was speaking, one after the other they came following a cue from her on stage pulling paper bags with case-study names over their head mimicking different executive types struggling with different issues. An image no one can forget.
Sylvia’s style was extremely unusual for our audience: very entertaining while connecting research from a very broad spectrum of disciplines in an educational manner. Everyone I spoke to wanted more of her!"
Jürgen Bache, Präsident ICF-Germany 2015
"Passion for her work is evident in the natural way Sylvia connects with the audience through an interactive presentation style. She is a master of using emotional intelligence to pick up on subtle cues to identify each person’s need and responds with empathy, compassion, candor, and words of inspiration.
Sylvia engages her audience with unique activities that leave participants with a memorable experience as she reinforces key points. Her guidance helps individuals set direction, clarify goals, and feel confident to accomplish them."

"Sylvia Becker-Hill has been a wonderful guest speaker five times at our German Professional Women's Association club meetings since 2007. Sylvia always created a fresh, new, customized program for each session or workshop ranging between 60 to 90 minutes in length for each of the 5 meetings. These sessions/workshops were educational, relevant, and empowering for our membership and the leadership team of GPWA.
We love that she puts her teaching methods into a science-based framework while making the content easy to understand and the delivery highly interactive and fun. When Sylvia speaks, there is a lot of laughter, verbal exchange, positive energy flow, and physical movement happening amongst the members and in the room. She always brought interesting props when she speaks.
Sylvia's process triggered a lot of insightfulness and motivation to step out of one’s comfort zone in order to explore bigger and more challenging opportunities. Her keynotes are truly intense and mesmerizing. Our members are still talking and reflecting about all they have learned in Sylvia's workshops and sessions. We are looking forward to having Sylvia speak again in the near future."
