Meet Your Coach
Hi, I'm Brent Roy and I'm a life and leadership coach who partners with professionals to help develop their leadership skills and reach their goals. After spending over 25 years working in communications and guiding teams as well as supporting and advising leaders and executives in the public sector, I know what truly drives teams and motivates employees.
I have presented my “Coach Approach to Leadership” workshop to help leaders and work groups build trust through creating a coaching climate in organizations. Prior to my communications career, I spent a decade in radio broadcasting.
I hold a Bachelor of Arts degree in Ministry and was awarded the designation of Associate Certified Coach (ACC) through the International Coaching Federation (ICF) in 2018. On October 5, 2021, I obtained my Professional Certified Coach (PCC) designation with the ICF. I am also an independent coaching contractor with BetterUp. As a Fellow Coach there, I help empower professionals all over North America through one-on-one coaching. I also serve clients there as and expert coach in Communication Effectiveness. In 2020 I was awarded BetterUp's Conscious Business Certificate. I graduated from the University of New Brunswick's Public Service Management Program in 2012 where I received the IPAC President's Award for Excellence in Public Service Management.
In 2020, I transitioned from communications to human resources, where I where I am responsible for ensuring the various workplaces within our large health authority are healthy and respectful.
I am also passionate about my own growth as a coach and continue to focus on enhancing my coaching skills to better serve my clients.
Outside of my passion for coaching and team-building, I love bicycling, reading, winter vacations to warmer climes with my wife, Mary-Jo and good-quality coffee. Mary-Jo and I have three grown children.
Back in 1990, I was working at radio station CFNB in Fredericton, and while hosting the Santa call-in show, took a risk and proposed to Mary-Jo over the air. We were married the following May. Three decades, several interests and careers and three kids later, they all have careers of their own. My son Gabe, who founded Zest Media Productions, created this short video as a way to honour their mom, our family, their careers and make their mom shed a few tears.
