We help you craft
a culture that is:
We help organizations develop unique human skills that AI cannot replicate to ensure your employees are adaptable, creative and innovative.
We help develop language and courage to have difficult conversations and make hard decisions.
We help organizations create psychological safety. We believe it is impossible to move to an agile environment when companies are lead by fear.
When employees understand their value, they take responsibility. And when they don’t...they take direction.
Culture Crafters specializes in delivering interactive and effective virtual trainings anywhere in the world!

She has worked with corporations and educational institutions such as FedEx Canada, Staples, Royal Bank of Canada and Colas Canada.
Parul explores future narratives of identity and connection. She uses housing, art and technology as vehicles to seek renewed perceptions of difference. She believes unity is plurality. At the centrefold of her work, she questions how we can serve the human spirit better.
Parul has practical experience studying behavioural and emotional responses to language and processes. As a strategist, she works with organizations that are creating novel solutions and pushing the edges of our current models.

After retiring from the world of rhythmic gymnastics, Lauren moved into the arts sector where for 18 years, she managed operations at the Randolph College for the Performing Arts, Canada’s premier training institution for musical theatre performers.

Vanessa facilitates training with Culture Crafters around vulnerability, leadership development, creating clarity and building resilience.
Her mission is to create empowered individuals by guiding them to learn how to access their inner courage to speak their truth.
Before transitioning to full-time entrepreneurship, Vanessa led the marketing strategy for Union Station’s retail development, advertising, programming and events team in partnership with the City of Toronto. Prior to that position, Vanessa held various senior roles in communications and marketing in France, England and the United States in both agency and corporate environments where she specialized in managing international communications campaigns for tech and B2B companies.
In 2011, motivated by a certainty that all individuals are capable far beyond their circumstances and past, Carol pivoted and launched “Shift Happens” a registered Canadian charity, to bring coaching to vulnerable teens and individuals, struggling to find meaning in their life.
As a rebel and rule-breaker in the best of ways, Carol has always challenged broken, conventional models, calling for radical change in businesses and individuals when required. She sees not what is – but what can, and will, be. Carol dares to go where others might waver and does so with a playful, take-no prisoner approach.
Another arena she loves to dance in is sharing neuroscience tools with organizations and individuals that want to create stronger teams through neuroscience and brain integration. She uses simple easy to use tools and language that provide an immediate and lasting effect on our changeable brain.

“Culture Crafters provided customized training to our DEI committee and we couldn't have wished for a better company to partner with. From the beginning, Culture Crafters took the time to understand our company and culture, with genuine care to move us along our inclusivity journey. The session was powerful and challenged us to explore our own unconscious bias. We left the session with a 12-month map with specific actions and accountability for our DEI committee to continue this important work. Our facilitator, Anya Soto was extremely passionate, knowledgeable and engaging. KOHO would highly recommend!”Kayla Van SchyndelManager of People and Culture at KOHO
“An amazing day with this talented group of colleagues exploring unconscious bias and having conversations that get to the heart of what it means to belong at work. A big shout out to our rock star facilitators Anya Romanova and Parul Bansal for their incredible work in this highly engaging experiential workshop. I am leaving the session enlightened, and more aware of my privilege / unconscious biases. #humanforward #lifelonglearning”Wesley ConnorVP Global Learning and Development at Randstad
“Anya delivered her Recognizing Unconscious Bias workshop for our Diversity and Inclusion company committee with a tight turnaround of 3 weeks. She was very efficient in getting the team organized (sent a survey in advance) and ready for the workshop. The delivery was awesome, a lot of energy and connection with people. The content was on point for the group. It was received with praise and did a fantastic job raising the awareness of our biases. I highly recommend and trust Anya in her leadership.”Francine CharetteHR Director, Colas Canada
“If you are looking for a skilled facilitator capable of keeping a group energized, on-track and feeling truly seen and heard, look no further than Anya Romanova. She creates an inclusive space where participants felt safe to share their perspectives and experiences while also keeping to the agenda and ensuring the group was meeting learning objectives. I would recommend her to facilitate any group that requires a leader capable of both being an empathic listener and a taskmaster who meets targets.”June MorrowOntario Public Services
“I attended Three Core Coaching Skills at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic while trying to navigate how to best lead and support my team through a challenging time, and who were all newly working remotely. This session is short at only 2 hours long, and the concepts were explained clearly and concisely. The real strength of this program though is that it offers truly tangible takeaways that can quickly be implemented almost immediately after leaving the training. Unlike many training sessions, the majority of the session was spent practicing the skills and concepts addressed. Anya and Vanessa create a safe and kind space to experiment and practice, and support the time and vulnerability needed to truly learn, so translating these concepts into my day to day life was less daunting. I thoroughly recommend it!”SarahHR Consultant at Yukon Government
