About Inner Heart Solutions

Who We Are

Inner Heart Solutions Inc. is an International Canadian Corporation founded by Bernadette Halloran in 2007. She realized then that there was something missing from her experience in the corporate world – the heart – integrity, passion, communication and fortitude. This led Bernadette to explore and pioneer a new way to do business by bridging the heart and mind of individuals and professionals for greater performance, improved communication and to build strong workplace cultures. The program was first introduced in a public workshop forum and over the years has moved into the corporate boardroom and now has expanded internationally helping organizations across 10 countries and 5 continents.

Our Unique Approach

Our unique approach is built on a powerful heart-centered foundation and strong business framework that guides participants through a proven, experiential method that bridges the heart and mind — transforming from the inside out.
