Below are a few of the topics that I have addressed when working with some of my previous clients along with testimonials describing their experience.
If your needs align please do not hesitate to reach out and we can discuss what you are looking to accomplish. If they do not, feel free to check out some of the people I recommend working with who are very good at what they do towards the end of the page.
PRESENTING WITH CONFIDENCE: No matter how great your ideas, or equipped your skill set, if you cannot express yourself in a way that clearly defines who you are, and how you can help, you will never make the impact that you set out to make.
“Every week I have to present my company´s projects to clients and Michael really helped me improve my confidence in this area along with my sales and negotiation skills. Michael brings a lot of energy and creativity to his work. It is very clear that Michael cares deeply about his clients and it really shows in his work and dedication.”
– Ricard Trenchs / Co-owner of Tarruella Trenchs Studio / Winner of AD Best Interior Designers in Spain 2015
MANAGING CAREER CHANGE: Going after your goals takes sacrifice, but that does not mean changing careers or sectors should entail a demotion. We will work together to soften the blow of embarking in a new career.
“I worked with Michael when I was looking to change my career and he helped me a great deal in not only my interview and presentation skills, but also in having a better idea of what type of job I would enjoy. Michael truly believes that anything is possible if you work hard and keep learning and his energy is very inspiring. I have recommended numerous friends from my MBA program at ESADE to Michael and all of them were very happy working with him.“
– Sylvia Jimenez / Therapeutical Area Manager / Gebro Pharma
“Michael immediately identified the areas of my communication in which I needed to improve upon and worked with me to achieve my goals in a very short amount of time. Shortly after working with Michael I was accepted into the Kellogg School of Management and since then I have been working in various cities around the world. Michael is very goal oriented, while at the same time very easy to work with.”
– Anna Robles / Project Manager / Henry Schein
BUILDING WIN-WIN RELATIONSHIPS: Ask better questions, become a more attentive listener, be more conscious of your body language, and welcome the conversation when it turns your way.
“The best thing about Michael is that he wants the people around him to succeed and he is very motivating in encouraging people to go after their goals. I was referred to Michael upon graduating from university and he helped me to identify my strengths, how to properly communicate my ideas and how to talk about myself. Shortly thereafter I was hired in a Sales Management position with a multi-national company and I cannot be happier with where I am in my career.”
– Jordi Riutord Casajuana / Ecommerce Logistic Manager / LIDL Supermarkets
“During my MBA program at ESADE I was referred by a fellow student to work with Michael to improve my communication skills in order to be accepted into a program in Australia. In the short time I worked with Michael he helped me to accomplish my goals and greatly raised my confidence. I cannot recommend working with Michael enough as a Coach.”
– Cristina Escapa González / External Engineer / SEAT
WRITING, EDITING AND MARKETING CONSULTING: Assisting entrepreneurs, “start-ups”, and stay-ups in clarifying their message and focusing on “no-budget marketing” to spur creativity amongst teams.
“A mutual friend recommended me working with Michael in order to present my company in English. We connected immediately and soon after I asked Michael to partner with me to grow Corpore Wear into English speaking countries. Besides being very creative, he is great with dealing with people and building new relationships. I have learned a great deal by working with Michael.”
BUSINESS ENGLISH SKILLS: Only for Advanced English speakers who are looking to develop their communication skills (presentation, negotiation, meetings, etc) while improving their English.
“Michael was referred to me and my business partner by a family member who highly recommended him. Michael has helped raise my confidence when speaking in both business and social situations in English, going as far as accompanying me to business meetings to meet with new clients. I have referred Michael in the past and will not hesitate to do so in the future.”
“A colleague recommended reaching out to Michael to improve my communication skills in regards to presentations, negotiations and being more vocal in meetings. I am now better at creating meaningful relationships in English and my confidence has grown significantly by working with him. Michael and I are close friends now and despite no longer working together we remain in constant contact.”
– Jordi Fabregat / Insolvency Manager / La Caixa
CAREER GUIDANCE FOR EX-PATS: Moving abroad to teach English? We will work together to take the necessary changes to your CV/resumé, cover letter, outreach messages while also brainstorming creative ideas to stand out.
“I am very fortunate to have Michael on my team to help new teachers from all over the world find work in Barcelona and abroad. Each month he gives a seminar to the new trainees on how to find employment and works with each one of them individually on their job search. During the last 6 years Michael has helped over a thousand people to find work all over the world. Michael truly cares about every person he meets.”
“I fell in love with Michael during his Presentation & Negotiation seminar that he gave with the Generalitat de Catalunya (Catalan government). Literally. We got married less than a year later.”
– Laia Andreu / Wife / Mother of his child
COACHING DETAILS: Most of my work is performed online, however if someone in the Barcelona area would prefer face-to-face please let me know. Contact me directly and we can set up a time to talk. Consultation is free and in that time we will gauge how I can help and set a plan in place.
