    Professional coaching

    Career advisory

    Life coaching

    Interview training

    My corporate European experience at board level within multi-national global market leading organizations spans the challenges faced by small and large businesses with multi-cultural perspectives as well as the human resources challenge of absorbing new companies into an established culture. This rich and diverse corporate background plus my training as a certified ICF coach, puts me in an excellent position to enhance the performances at senior levels in the business environment.
    In my own career, I have demonstrated that powerful coaching leads to more effective and inspirational leadership, renews personal and corporate energy levels, strengthens commitment and leverages personal fulfillment.
    My personal vision is to deliver coaching, which dignifies each individual whilst enhancing the performance of their organization.


    The moment of leaving a job and a company is crucial in life and can be full of opportunities.

    It is the moment to reflect experiences and talents, to reveal wishes and pending objectives, to realign the personal and professional path and define objectives and develop action plans.

    I accompany each candidate on a very personal level with a broad toolset of coaching, emotional intelligence and PNL skills.
