About the Event

Everyone has a big idea inside of them.  How can coaching support you with growing into the person you need to be to achieve the goals you have set for yourself?  Join our discussion of esteemed experts, Sophia Casey, Berwick Mahdi Davenport, Jessica Lightbourne, and Lorene Philips, to learn the benefits of the coaching relationship, what coaching is and what it is not, how to strengthen teamwork and collective action, improve communication, and be action-oriented.

SOPHIA CASEY is a certified coach, authorpreneur, and corporate trainer for several leaders. Many people offer solutions; few deliver results. Sophia Casey does so much more than support individual and corporate clients with problem solving. She helps leaders of all caliber get transformative results that literally catapult their businesses and organizations to the next level. Having served as Director of First Impressions for a task force for the former Vice President of the United States, her innate ability for excellence, execution and acceleration allows her to meet individuals right where they are—then help them soar! For more than 30 years, Sophia has served as an agent of change for followers around the world, being featured in SUCCESS magazine, on CBS, NBC, Fox News and SiriusXM radio.

As a featured voice on Amazon Alexa, it’s no surprise that Sophia has successfully served on various levels of leadership. Having started her journey as Director of an education center, Sophia has been fortunate to serve as head of several training organizations in the federal government, including her tenure as Director of Enterprise-Wide Training for more than 10,000 engineers, attorneys and analysts. A Professional Certified Coach through the International Coach Federation (ICF), her love for mentoring and coaching soon blossomed into her signature leadership development model: Leadership, Ownership, and Accountability (LOA®️).

Her studies at UCLA and Johns Hopkins University taught her the importance of higher education and the value of relating to everyone as a leader. Having grown up and taught in some of the toughest neighborhoods in the nation, Sophia is forever committed to empowering leaders to transform their professional and personal lives, despite external circumstances, and to do so with ease and flow. This commitment led Sophia to create the Ease & Flow Leadership Academy, an online learning school for individuals and corporations. Realizing that this is much more of a calling than simply a career, Sophia stands firmly on her faith and her commitment to transform communities worldwide. Yet building a legacy for her children, and her children’s children, Sophia authored both an eBook entitled, K.I.M. – Keep It Movin’: 10 Steps to Let Go and Fly, as well as Ease & Flow: A 31-Day Journal to Get Clear, Connected, and Courageous About Life. In addition to the release of her first novel, Fierce Vulnerability: A Colored Girl’s Truths, Trials, and Triumphs, in August of 2020, Sophia continues her commitment to supporting women’s global empowerment. A featured speaker for the Women’s Economic Forum, a conference where over 1,500 women from 110 countries attended, her stories of hope and healing leave a distinct mark on the hearts and minds of others that cannot easily be erased.

As a young professional, who was once told that she was too young, too black or not smart enough, Sophia has not only shattered glass ceilings; those ceilings have now become her floor. Using her perfectly imperfect gifts to catapult herself to great success—and help others do the same—Sophia was selected to host the upcoming Sophia Casey TV Show. Far from your average life coach or basic business mentor, she won’t stop until she supports you with winning in business and life. To find out more: or visit
