Meet Our Program Director
Charlene is a proud Canadian woman of Indigenous descent, media visionary, author, speaker, community leader, economic development enthusiast and second-term Councilor for the Town of Gibsons, B.C.
She is the Founder and CEO of PowHERhouse Media Group, a vehicle marrying media and manifestation to move women forward, faster.
Years in the fitness industry as both a competitive athlete and coach are evident as she continues to bring energy, motivation, and action to her presentations. Her experience as a Municipal Community Leader (in Local Government) are obvious in her yearning to create relevance, depth and positive change. She speaks with purpose: Taking ACTION for IMPACT and then speaking about it to inspire others to do the same.
Finally, her dedication as women's advocate for over 17 years combined with her Indigenous background creates her foundation and passion to redefine power, teaching others the balance between lifestyle + leadership, bringing our WHOLE selves to each day to reach our EPIC potential for our greatest good. Anything less would not do justice to the experience she has chosen for herself in this lifetime.
What women are saying about SPEAK! Canada
My lived experience can speak to the positive impact Charlene has had on my own life and career. Without Char and PowHERhouse, I would not have been on the TEDX stage in Vancouver in October of 2016, an event which remains a significant highlight for me. She has managed to galvanize a vast tribe of not only strong women but powHERful speakers. I adore this women!
When I first came across SPEAK! Canada, I really didn’t see how it would benefit me since I have taken several speaking programs in the past and have been speaking for many years. Once I was in the program, I realized it was unlike any other program I had experienced.
Charlene was masterful at drawing out greater clarity within me, really nailing it, resulting in a crystal-clear message. The intimate nature, one-on-one attention and peer support fostered a quick learning curve and was highly effective in getting almost immediate feedback. If you know Charlene, she does everything with purpose and with the end in mind. Upon completion of SPEAK, I ended up several deliverables that I have been able to implement immediately.

Zena Amundsen, Certified Financial Planner | Adding Heart to Business + Money
I have been honored to work with Charlene through the LEAP Learning Lab, SPEAK program. Charlene’s facilitation of the program was well organized, communicated and gave me a series of tangible results that have been powerful in my own business. Most importantly, she creates an environment of comfort and support, empowering participants to grow themselves and their business. She has been a fantastic mentor, offering constructive, honest feedback. She has a brilliant business mindset, and I would encourage others to take the opportunity to work with her.
