• About Vicki McLeod & Co.

  • Hi, I’m Vicki.

    I’m happiest in my pajamas, an apron, or both! Of course, I suit up, too, but in my heart of hearts I know that true happiness comes directly from connection with the joys of ordinary daily life. It's called #everydayhappiness and it’s our birthright.

    I believe happy idleness is a purposeful pathway to a contented life. Rattling my pots and pans and cooking for people I love is my happy place. I'm a passionate foodie devoted to locally raised fresh food, and supporting farmers and farmers markets. I am more than half in love with Jamie Oliver. I'm also a poet, painter and cookie-maker. You can read about my kitchen exploits in my Dishing in the Kitchen posts.

    Meantime as a certified coach and process facilitator, I work with some amazing people - people like personal coach, Kathy Irwin, and savvy business coach Lori Graham. We create workshops, retreats and one-to-one coaching options all designed with one thing in mind -- transformative change-making --- in the comfort of your own jammies. Or not. We’ll work with you in your regular duds, too. 

    Oh, I’m also an award-winning entrepreneur and I’ve been rocking a communications and marketing business for more than 25 years. I’m proof you can do what you love and love what you do - your way. A fulfilled life is  radical act!

  • Author of #Untrending: A Field Guide to Social Media That Matters

    How to Post, Tweet and Like Your Way to a Meaningful Life. I love our amazing digital world and the mind-boggling technology available to us to communicate, connect, engage and empower each other. The thing is, we spend waaay too much time on our devices, scrolling through endless celebrity selfies and pop culture trivia, distracting ourselves from what really matters.

    My little book is an invitation to you to use your social media to make meaning - to use it for social good, sharing the love, and celebrating joy. I believe that's the digital awesome sauce, peeps. Now available for purchase below.

    P.S. As a bonus, #Untrending is filled with beautiful hand-drawings, crafted by artist Cindy Farnsworth. They're yours for the colouring. Get out your crayons.

    P.S.S. This tiny book is a tiny dream of mine that came true :)
