A 20 year industry expert in the corporate leadership arena, international speaker and author, Sylvia Becker-Hill, has seen and lived first-hand the rise of women’s empowerment both personally and professionally.

From helping C-Suite women leaders find a balance in embracing what it means to  simply be a woman in leadership to the male Fortune 300 leaders who don't want the old patriarchal way of leadership as the way they run their organizations

And it is this passion for true women’s empowerment- equal empowerment- that has led to her latest venture, Becker-Hill Women’s Empowerment School. This real world and online school is poised to help women unlearn the patriarchal “superwoman” rules that have been strangling their true success and show them how to master all areas of their lives by simply being - women.

All the while supporting and training the men who want to be done with the patriarchal bondage, too.

Fusing her love of science, psychology and proven success principles, Becker-Hill supports her students, one-on-one private clients, and event attendees to unearth and break free of undeserving dogma of the past and step into their success, love-filled futures by simply being - women.


Top executives and business leaders – women and men – with personal salaries 150 K+, who seek to become the best leaders they can be while living a dream life full of love and time abundance and meaningful impact without sacrificing their family nor self-care for their career or business.

Sylvia’s past clients came from companies like: Adidas, Lufthansa Technik, Lufthansa Sky-Chefs, Bombardier Transportation, Bosch, Siemens, BMW…
