Sylvia Becker-Hill (German), Publisher, Becker-Hill Books

I am the proud founder of Becker-Hill Books, a boutique publishing house in Southern California, and the Becker-Hill Women’s Empowerment School. I believe we are living in exciting yet difficult times as we transition out of the patriarchy into a more caring society based on true partnership and diversity. As a self-confessed ‘brain nerd’, I combine neuroscience with my creativity as an artist. It brings me immense satisfaction to combine seemingly opposite fields - science and art - in my online learning programs and executive coaching in order to empower women. My personal life journey includes dealing with the dark places of intergenerational PTSD caused by the trauma of both my parents and grandparents from the second world war. Bringing inspiration and happiness to others is my soul’s purpose. This journey took me from having a mind full of knowledge yet living disconnected from my body to a joy-filled, confident, grounded, liberated, woman leader.

Today, I help entrepreneurs, executives, and business leaders to share their incredible stories of success, build their brands and credibility, and manage their reputations.
