I’m driven by a passion to work with the beauty that are human beings, their emotions, ambitions, fears and life events. Accepting this passion in full I found purpose to improving working conditions by guiding leaders to manage with purpose, heart and courage.
My 25+ years of professional experience in different areas, countries and multinational companies provides the basis for management & business understanding. While my lifelong interest in self-development & spirituality provides solid ground to manifest real personal change through in depth knowledge of Neuro Linguistic Programming and Transpersonal Life Balance Coaching.
On a personal note, my experience was shaped by several life events which taught me valuable lessons, including moving countries, forced selling a house, losing a job and divorce. Only to find myself in a place I would not have reached without these events. A mentally & spiritual mature father of two, grateful to my wife who keeps matters real, thankful for having inspiring people in my life and with a love of endurance sports
