CREATIVE DIRECTOR & COACH
“Revolution starts within.''
Cath Laporte generates authenticity in people. Certified as a Big Leap Coach by the Hendricks Institute and studying under the wing of Margaret Wheatley, she uses creativity and humour to convey an open, holistic and human perspective. Whatever your field, if you have the desire to be inspired and electrified, you are at the right place. Spoiler: Cath believes that everyone is creative in their own way and that creativity is a crucial skill to activate and train.
For over fifteen years, Cath worked in advertising, sharing her time between Montreal, Paris and Amsterdam while working with international clients. Her work as a designer and art director has been recognized internationally. Both the complete rebranding of Sid Lee, and her contribution to the concept and branding behind Bota Bota Spa have won her Lions in Cannes. Moreover, her artwork has been exposed in Argentina, Canada, France, The Netherlands and the UK.
In 2013, she co-founded TRUST, a gallery-café in Amsterdam, where customers were invited to follow their intuition and "feel" the price they want to share, no price was on the chalkboard. Since then, she has acted as a regenerative builder, and each project is for her a vehicle for questioning established structures.
Back in Quebec since 2016, after almost seven years in Amsterdam, she likes to work on her projects both in Montreal and on her farmhouse in the Eastern Townships, surrounded by her organic veggies. Interactive workshops, visual art, creative direction and organic market gardening fill the pages of her agenda.
