Hello, I’m Raquel Ark.

I am a communicator, coach, facilitator dedicated to shining the light on listening. My work is devoted to sharing ideas, tools and resources that will help you master the art of listening in everything you do.

My purpose is to inspire individuals to integrate listening into what they already do in order to take their work to another level. Listening is the doorway to understanding, the bridge to connections and the foundation of trust. And when transformational listening happens, smiles show up even if we feel like we just had a hard workout.
