Priscilla de Callier
Priscilla has been a driving force behind the Institute from its inception. Aside from being the coach to the Founder, she brings many years of experience as a senior executive----positions in which she earned a reputation for detail-orientation, creative problem-solving and getting the job done in very complex, challenging, global environments. She began her career as a dancer with the Memphis Ballet Company, trained further at the Stuttgart Ballet School in Germany and then performed with Holiday on Ice Europe. After performing, she moved into the operational side of the motion picture industry in Hollywood in 1979. Here she rose quickly from Story Editor to Director of Publicity and then Vice-President of Publicity and Advertising globally for the then largest independent film studio in the world, Cannon Films. Later, she became Executive Vice-President, Publicity and Advertising, for 21st Century Film Corporation. Her professional accomplishments were recognized formally by her peers when, in 1988, she was inducted into the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences as a member. Her university degree in Art is a subject that has continued to hold her interest today as she serves as a volunteer at the Lobkowicz Palace in Prague.
