"I absolutely believe that people, unless coached, never reach their maximum capabilities." (Bob Nardelli)
I have a diverse experience of working in an international environment for 12+ years, including working in the private sector, a non-governmental organization and academic institutions. My previous roles cover recruitment, marketing, education, learning & development, and diversity & inclusion functions.
I have also served on the Board of the UK’s Society for Intercultural Education, Training and Research (SIETAR UK) as a Director of Communication and a co-founder of BOOST Intercultural Mentoring Programme – I still offer my services as a career coach on this programme.
In addition to my training and coaching work, I am a part-time lecturer at the University of Surrey, delivering a Master level module in Intercultural Business Communication. I also work as Learning Solutions Designer at WorldWork Ltd.
“After each session with Gabriela, I felt enlighted and ‘lighter’ (without a heavy weight of worries over my shoulders), as if everything was easier and I had a better control over my life. In fact, I now belive that I can control many things in life, whereas before I wasn’t sure.”
Dora, Marketing Officer, Spain
“Coaching sessions with Gabriela were a wonderful experience. She would ask me thought provoking questions that enabled me to explore various solutions that best aligned with my values and goals. She has highly developed active listening skills that laid a fundation for us to deepen our connection and build stronger rapport and trust.”
Brittany, Diversity & Inclusion Consultant, USA
“Coaching with Gabriela helped me to find my strengths and skills and to sketch out a clear plan for a career as an intercultural trainer. She’s very professional and concise and pinpointed my needs and capabilities right from the first session. I can definitely recommend her as a career coach.”
