“Katya helped me discover a major mental block that was stopping me from moving forward in my business. I knew it was there but didn’t know why or what to do about it. She gave me 3 questions to answer. And when I did, I saw what the block was and what I could do about it. I feel like a massive weight has been lifted from my shoulders and I feel excited again about growing my business. Without that discussion and those questions, I would never have broken through this block like I did–I smashed through it. Thank you so much Katya.”

“I had the privilege of working with Katya on the KC Chamber Toastmasters executive and Katya was an outstanding achiever, completing what she agreed to do. Wish she hadn’t moved.”

“Katya is an outstanding leader. She knows how to motivate teams to achieve a common goal. Her expertise in financial services and business is unsurpassed.”
“I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Katya Gorlova since 2011 when I became employed by RBC Dominion Securities. We met at a Dominion Securities/RBC function and Katya made a good impression right off the start, and we kept in touch after that as we both agreed that there would be mutual benefit to partnering. I have always held Katya in high regard for her warmth, knowledge, caring client-focus, team-building abilities, and work ethic. Katya has an exceptional ability to get things done, and her opinions on matters of importance mean a great deal to me.
My doctoral research, coupled with my time in human resources, investor relations and wealth management have taught me a lot about what it takes to build and maintain a strong organization. Capable and thoughtful people are at the foundation of any great organization, and Katya is such a person.
I have come to know her former staff through my business relationship with Katya. Her team was well constructed, has great chemistry, and they all have been wonderful folks to deal with. To me, this is an excellent reflection on the architect. All of us were sad to see Katya move away, and the Royal Bank certainly lost a top performer with her departure.
I can highly recommend Katya based on her strong character, her proven abilities as a leader, as well as her work ethic and integrity. Any company that adds Katya to their roster will be better through the addition of this exceptional woman. ”

“Katya for me was what anyone would want in a mentor. We were both managers in banking with me being the newbie. She held me to account with the procedures our company required while at the same time encouraged and strengthened me as a leader. Katya taught me what leadership meant. It doesn’t mean being the boss but helping everyone who depends on you become greater than they are. Katya is one I would follow just to see where she is going. She is one of those rare people who can inspire greatness just through her presence. Her positivity and vision have helped to mold my success. I am eternally grateful for her wisdom, strength and leadership. Without Katya I would never have aspired to where I am.“
