VIA Frontiers

Rapid success
Over 3,000 high-performing clients
35 years of multicultural corporate experience

VIA Frontiers and Bharati Jagdish Communications combine their subject matter expertise in behavioural change and communication to deliver programmes to heighten employee engagement and accountability, install a high-performance culture, and improve mental health within organisations.

VIA Frontiers was founded by Peak Performance Consultant, Trainer and Coach, Sylvia Fernandes in Sydney in 2002 and relocated to Singapore in 2007. Over more than two decades, it has helped organisations install high-performance cultures while deepening employee engagement. This has created organisations with a culture of self-management and employees who are driven by a sense of purpose.​

Most organisations are time-poor, searching for fast and effective solutions. As such, VIA Frontiers has developed its own Rapid Success Model to help clients achieve elite levels of performance at record speeds.

Methods used are practical, sustainable, efficient and most of all, replicable. VIA's holistic approach to corporate issues plays out in training, facilitation, group coaching and one-on-one coaching. Programmes are highly experiential and modules are broken down into easily digestible segments.

Sylvia is a qualified Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) Master Trainer. In 2002, she reinvented herself from a banker to a behavioural change specialist.

Having helped many organisations successfully implement cultural change, Sylvia's focus turned to moulding self-motivated employees. She created her own Rapid Success Model, driving clients to fast, optimal results with workforce self-management being the ultimate goal.​

Sylvia's understanding of corporate needs and cross-cultural issues comes from working in large organisations across the Asia Pacific region. These include Maybank, Commonwealth Bank of Australia, IT@Manpower, Cap Gemini Ernst & Young Consulting, IBM Global Services Australia and Peoplesoft.

Having transitioned from employee to entrepreneur, Sylvia has many stories to tell, hence her mainstream features in media outlets such as Mediacorp's CNA, SPH Radio's ONE FM 91.3, Malaysia's BFM 89.9, New Straits Times, Her World, and The Edge.

Today, Sylvia specialises in training, coaching and facilitation with her accelerated models that make learning fun, easy, and immediately applicable to daily life.
To add to her accolades, Sylvia is also an author, having published her self-help book 'Bye Bye Black Cat – Turn Your Luck Around' which is aimed at helping individuals understand the formula to success.
