    Marielle has had a huge impact on my career and performance. She invests and focuses on what is core to us or should be as professionals: self awareness about our skills, and internal drivers. She has helped me be more centered and empowered me in my current role. I now feel like I drive my own professional development instead of leaving it in the hands of others and I look at my choices wisely. She is an expert at “third culture” profiles who do not fit into typical company molds and helps you shape roles that add value to both parties in an everchanging competitive environment. I highly recommend her to any high level executive.

    Marielle is an exceptional career consultant. I have worked with her on multiple occasions and found her insight and counsel to be superior in all aspects of managing one's career.

    From identifying new opportunities to evaluating options to negotiating compensation and benefits internationally, her experience and ability are unrivaled.

    I was very satisfied with the input and advice I got from my adviser. As it happens, she had been a partner in a renowned Executive Search firm and performed a similar role to mine for several years. So she understood my goals.

    The most valuable thing is she gives me support on how to negotiate with my clients, brush up my LinkedIn profile, and how to make a business plan, as I want to become a full consultant when I return to my country.
