An Executive Success Programs Coach and Actor

The coaches at Executive Success Programs hail from many professional backgrounds. When actor Giles Panton isn’t on set, he spends time at ESP’s Vancouver center, where he is a professional coach and regional executive. We interviewed him about the impact his work with ESP has had on his career, his relationships and his dreams.


It’s helping me to build a richer, deeper life—to experience more joy and a genuine existence. My career has branched out enormously since ESP: I’m earning more money than I ever did before. I have the best relationships I’ve ever had with my friends and family, and I got married earlier this year.

You’re one of ESP’s newer regional executives. What does that mean to you?

Earning the position helped me to own my achievements. I so often focus on how much I want to build or how far is left to go, that I rarely look back on what I’ve built. But stopping to reflect on that helped me build more self-esteem. And the position means I can help build ESP’s Vancouver community on a deeper level as well.

What has it taken to achieve the growth you have?

The biggest shift was starting to think about how I wanted to be vs. how I felt I needed to be seen. That took working through a lot of misconceptions I had about what others expected of me. I owe a big debt of gratitude to ESP and to another NXIVM company, Ultima’s The Source.

What advice would you give someone who’s considering becoming a coach with ESP? Digging down to the truth of who we really are, and from that place building our dreams is so important. I spent too many years living my life pretending to be someone I’m not. Living our dreams is too valuable a thing to trade.giles_panton_esp_1

So if you’re considering becoming a coach (which is a fast track to the above), do it. It’s one of the best decisions I’ve made in my life.
