    Executive Search Consultant & Freelance Entrepreneur

    “I was very satisfied with the input and advice I got from my coach [....] 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.”
