About Marc Silvestri
Marc Silvestri is born on October 26, 1965, in Brussels, Belgium. He completed a degree in Journalism and Communication but his heart was somewhere else – in training horses. His entrepreneurial projects started in the equine industry and expanded into many other fields, including management, marketing, sales and teaching.
Between 2000 and 2005, Marc worked in the Middle East for the Royal Cavalry in the Sultanate of Oman and later to Malaysia as a Manager and Chief Instructor. Despite working in a different culture, he planted the seed of success, raising awareness about empathy, partnership and relationship between people and animals.
Marc also developed a great expertise in Martial Arts, practicing Tai Chi for more than 25 years and various kind of boxing as well. He is not a Martial Arts trainer but he can use the benefits he get from his practice to help people to develop their social, emotional and physical skills. His background is quite unique as he combines different approaches: Neuropsychology, philosophy, mindfulness, spirituality and science of success.
Today, he is a trainer, a speaker and philosopher. Every day, he introduces people to the benefits of meditation.
In 2014, Marc expanded his entrepreneurial efforts again this time in Cambodia where he started up his first business. Things didn’t turn as expected then he decided to stop the business and Marc found himself living on 5$ per day for the coming 3 months. Marc names this challenging period his personal walk through fire. He discovered his own resilience and determination to success.
In 2015 he begins a new life in Angkor Zen Gardens, a yoga & meditation retreat center. He developed an inspirational environment where people can settle down, reconnect with themselves and find true peace of the mind.
In 2018 Marc decided to create Zen & Performance, a unique and practical approach of mindful leadership. He designed innovative training on rewiring the brain to express person’s highest potential. His intention is to help people open-up to change using tools such as meditation and activation of the subconscious mind.
