I am a professional leadership and mindset executive coach, trainer and speaker who brings intentional and simple principles that have been known and used by the greatest leaders and most successful people in the world. Using a combination of analytical and creative skills, I help you produce agile solutions that make great contributions to your company’s performance. Unhindered by traditional ways of working, I enable you to come up with your own ideas of how things can be done differently.

As an executive coach I help you solve complex problems that require high-level thinking, sorting through the variables and nuances to find a carefully considered intelligent solution. Through keen observation of situations, I am able to assess quickly what needs to change to reduce the friction often experienced in internal and external relationships. A dynamic, resourceful and a dedicated life-long learner, I am passionate about bringing my creativity and positive energy to every task and endeavour I undertake in an organized and professional manner.

As the principal painter, artist and owner of Specialty Paint Finishes, a company I started in 2000, I helped homeowners express their creativity in their home environment. I have been the VP of Membership and the VP of Public Relations for Brooklin Toastmasters.  I am the immediate Past President of Business and Professional Women of Durham and Past GTA District Director Business and Professional Women of Ontario. As President of my BNI All Business Networkers chapter in Oshawa and then the following year as Growth Coordinator, our chapter grew by over 60%. As a serial entrepreneur I sat on the Durham College Small Business and Entrepreneur Advisory Council and as a member of the Whitby Chamber of Commerce I am on several Chamber committees.

I have been trained and certified by the internationally recognized #1 leadership expert Dr John C Maxwell and a Founding Member of the John Maxwell Team. This team of coaches, trainers and speakers have been trained and certified to help people be intentional in their lives both privately and professionally—by working with purpose and having a solid plan. I have been tutored by world renowned motivational speaker Les Brown and I am a member of the Women Speakers Association as well as a member of IMPACT – International Membership of Professional Advisors Coaches and Trainers. I am also a trained facilitator of Simon Sinek’s Start With Why Program.

My passion and purpose is to inspire and empower people to bring out the best in themselves and others – to unlock their potential. Born and raised in Scarborough, I am the mother of three grown children and have resided in Ajax for over thirty years.  I live just north of Pickering Village with my husband of over 34 years and my youngest, college-grad son. Lorna Weston Smyth provides her services to individuals and businesses throughout the world from her office just east of Toronto, Ontario, CA.

Whether you are in Toronto, Pickering, Ajax, other areas in Durham Region or anywhere else in the world, she is ready to help you create a future of choice not chance. For inquiries about her services, visit the contact page on this website.
