Johanna Vanderpol is a visionary who is putting into action her part in contributing to the unification of the globe.

Johanna envisions a world where everyone is contributing their unique gift to the wellness of the human race, where we work together to create a world free from the extremes of wealth and poverty, prejudices, inequalities and injustice.

Since 1991, Johanna has owned and operated a business as a consultant specializing in all aspects of computerized accounting systems. Since 1999, she has been researching and speaking on Emotional Intelligence and her business has evolved into coaching and consulting services to help clients achieve their visions by developing their unique potential. The business has become very successful as a result of her recognizing the fact that emotions of the owners and employees of the business played a key role in its success or failure. Johanna has been able to develop coaching strategies to help her clients move through and manage this unclear and sometimes vulnerable space.

Johanna provides workshops and is currently continuing her research in the field of emotional intelligence and how it can be incorporated into all aspects of society, including the education curriculum and the workplace. She lives in Cowichan Bay, British Columbia, Canada with her sixteen-year old son.
