Dr. Györgyi Szalay


“We don't see things as they are, we see them as we are.” (Anaïs Nin)

My passion is to discover cultures and experience human diversity. As a cultural researcher, I wrote several books about Hungarian-German cooperation and communication, such as “Fit für Ungarn”. As coach I use a wide range of methodological approach that gives me the possibility to support my clients unfolding their abilities in a way that best suits their personalities and goals. I support clienst to develop their global mindset and their inter- and transcultural communication skills, to lead multi-cultural teams, to achieve high-performance and balance, and to reach a place of coherence.
