I learned more about industry recruitment and applications during the coaching sessions with Tina, but even more importantly I learned a whole lot about myself. Tina has excellent people skills, which she naturally used to help me find the best fitting role for my personality. Conclusively, I learned that it's important to accept myself as an employee and have faith that the best fitting job is just around the corner. I definitely recommend to try out the coaching with Tina!

I met Tina a few years ago during a Career Day organized at my university and, since then, I haven't stopped following her every time I had the opportunity. I attended her workshops, webinars, masterclasses, one-to-one strategic and professional coaching sessions, I listened to her podcasts, read her book, website and blog, finding in all of this an endless source of inspiration and encouragement. I admire Tina's professionalism, integrity and courage among other values that make her a true leader, career coach, and role model for anyone with potential that needs some help to be fully understood and expressed.

Tina’s experiences and consideration of alternatives were very helpful in understanding myself as the leader of my own career choices. In particular, Tina also ran an objective profiling – Birkman, which gave greater insights into my work behaviours both usual and under stress. It is very important to know how you work under both these conditions so you can choose places that match for you and avoid ones that don’t. For me it is important to have high levels of independence in certain areas, and Tina helped me to uncover that.

Tina always spreads great energy around her. Tina has experiences both inside academia and outside academia and this was very valuable for me since she helped me to look for jobs opportunities outside academia. Tina has coached me when I wanted to get a job outside academia and after that things changed positively for me. She had given me great advices on how to change my CV, how to hunt for a job and great tips for jobs interviews. She is very attentive, good listener and very respectful.

Tina is an exceptional career coach and mentor. She had a profound impact on my career and life after only two small workshops and three individual sessions. In my particular case, she helped me understand that storytelling is key. Together we build a plan for growth and she guided me through my transition from constant rejections to getting three job offers in the same month.
