Marina Ofner

“The purpose of life is to be happy.” (Dalai Lama)

As a professional trainer and Cambridge-certified coach, I help managers and employees of global companies to nurture and grow their intercultural competence. My training and coaching focus on communication, leadership, diversity and business etiquette with a special emphasis on intercultural awareness. Working for about a decade in diverse positions and industries provided me with an awareness and understanding of the challenges faced by my clients. The further training I undertook to become a coach has equipped me with the specialised knowledge needed to support my clients and their specific needs. This combination of professional experience, business studies, communication studies, positive psychology, training and coaching allows me to offer my clients a wide range of competencies. I train and coach managers and employees from leading international companies and also work in cooperation with renowned institutes and training providers.

“My wife and I had an intercultural training session with Marina in preparation for our upcoming move to Switzerland. We experienced Marina as a very knowledgeable, emphatic and flexible coach. Due the different views – scientific and subjective – that were presented and discussed, the intercultural training was very helpful for us and will definitely ease the transition to Switzerland both in private as well as in business life.”
