“On leaving university our son was not sure about what he wanted to do and I knew Sophia would be a great person to help him define his skill set and how to best portray himself to prospective employers. Sophia has a warm personality and a desire to see people progress and succeed. She enabled our son to see what he was aiming for personally and to also demonstrate skills he had from limited experience that has value in today’s workplace. Sophia was also a great coach for interview preparation and kept in close contact throughout the process. Thank you Sophia for your insights and expertise!”

“Sophia was very supportive and resourceful in my career search and helped me secure a role in a very short period of time. She coached me to see opportunities from a different perspective. Her guidance and advice were invaluable in helping me elevate my own understanding of my skill set and this helped me conduct various interviews with confidence”

Ronel Lehmann

CEO and Founder, Finito Education Ltd

“I have known Sophia for over 15 years and did recruit her into a senior management role at FIRST Global Events Agency, in 2012. As a company that was accredited with Investor in People Gold and reached No.14 in the 2017 Great Place to Work rankings, a massive strategic focus was on our culture, our talent management, and our people development. Sophia played a crucial leadership role in recruiting the best talent, coaching high-performance, and building strategic personal development programmes that both retained and advanced that talent. Sophia’s strong emotional intelligence, insightful intuition, and positive presence make for a solid and reliable coach, able to guide and inspire future senior leaders. Not only would I happily work with Sophia again, we are still in regular contact where I call upon her counsel and sound good advice.”

“Sophia is a force of nature! I had the luck to be coached by Sophia on several occasions. She is naturally non-judgemental and caring, and she brings all of her experience and wisdom to every session. I value her perspective on things, which is almost never what you would anticipate!”

Peter Knupffer

Professional Co-active Coach to Changemakers

“Last year, I set up my Management Consulting business in Vienna. In the early stages, Sophia supported me in creating my visionary board and defining my values on which my business was based upon. In her authentic way, Sophia coached me by challenging me to find creative solutions and to set clear goals, which have supported me in finding the space and time in my very busy professional and personal life, to stay focused and manage the various challenges of setting up a new business effectively. Even though I am based in Vienna, it was a new experience for me to be coached via FaceTime; however, we both built a very good rapport, and I was very happy with the outcome for each of our sessions. Thank you very much Sophia for empowering me!”

Caroline Hahn

Management Consultant

“I can truly say that Sophia is an experienced coach that has the innate ability to connect with people. She is warm and charismatic, and supported me in seeing things from a different perspective. Her energy, experience, and leadership skills added an additional dimension to our coaching sessions—she was able to challenge with a great deal of empathy. I learned a lot from our sessions and have taken away insight and tools that have supported in both my personal and professional growth.”
