Consulting

My career as a Business consultant began almost 40 years ago.

I worked first as a Chinese and Japanese translator, one of very few such translators at that time. Then, I served as a business consultant for companies operating in various fields. The nature of my work enabled me to travel and live in several countries across Asia and Europe and to meet people from diverse backgrounds.

My innate curiosity and thirst for knowledge allowed me to learn a lot with each new trip and each new assignment.

I added more knowledge (and more Diplomas) to my basket because my consulting projects involved: Professional beauty, Image Consulting, Luxury Foodstuff, Jewellery, Real Estate and Home Staging, Chocolate Production, Fashion, Spa and Hotel Management, Fengshui, Television, Funding, Communication, Branding, Advertising, Social Media, Franchising, Event organization, Financing & Wealth Management, International Associations, etc.

My personal quest for more knowledge and my permanent feeling that something was missing from the “puzzle board” made me discover several methods of personal development and holistic and quantic therapies, which, in the last years, became part of myself and were integrated into my Consulting services.

My holistic way of contemplating a person and helping her become the Best version of Herself, becoming conscious of her Potential, and Aligning herself to her Life Mission, ensured I always got Happy Clients.

Feel free to book a session with me when You aim for Transformation and need energetical support. I will clarify to you what is happening at an energetical and Frequency level, be in for yourself, your relationships or your business.

Everything I touch becomes GOLD!

I could be called an alchemist, but my clients chose to call me “Transformation Wizard”. I have a unique talent for helping people turn their lives into better lives, transforming their perceptions and their visions about themselves and the world surrounding them.

Luckily I was born with all 5 elements present and harmonious in my chart, so I can wear any “hat” and act in whatever capacity you need me to. Whether you’re looking for business analysis, moral support, spiritual guide, trainer, manager, or image builder, I can step into that role with ease and help you make a visible turnaround in your life.

Many counselors simply tend to resolve their clients’ problems for them. They don’t offer real changes, just readymade solutions.

I’m not going to hand you the solution on a silver platter. If I were just the referee who observes the game and ensures the players stick to the rules, it would not be enough. I will discuss your problem with you and empower you to make the change yourself, assisting and supporting you all the way. I am the Master of the life game in which there are some rules you have to obey and there are some rules you can create or we can create together, to get wonderful results.

The easiest way out of your dilemma would be to tell you exactly what the right answer is and how to get there. But I prefer enabling you to seek the change within yourself. That way, I can help you improve yourself as a person both inside and out. You receive the tools to figure out who you are and what you want in life. You need an enabler, a guiding hand – That’s my role. I will facilitate you every step of the way to help you achieve the best version of yourself.

I do not believe in consultants who can do everything in every field and always succeed. For the simple reason that there are so many unique elements for each business and so many variations depending on the people who are doing that business…

I believe in consultants with a certain expertise and a lot of empathy, with a strong instinct, because business is not just about the work, but also about the inner feelings.

I started international consulting work more than 38 years ago and I never stopped since.

Fengshui and the GOSEI – FIVE ELEMENTS  Holistic way of looking at people and situations always accompanied my consulting and proved its effectiveness.

Having access to and understanding native customs and etiquette, and interpreting behaviors and reactions when faced with different situations on different continents, helped me develop a “special sense” and a unique technique of relating with my clients on a deeper level.

I needed to discover what my particular gift was.

Knowing yourself and being aware of your strengths is the best way to be able to “propose” yourself to others.

What do I Do?

I speak professionally 8 languages.

I am a very good strategist (I was educated in the Army and I see each project as a “battle camp” on which I have to dispatch the right regiment) and business negotiator, a great cross cultural trouble shooter.

I know how to help a business turn profitable as my great instinct and visionary sense are doubled by an enormous experience working internationally.

I have a large international network of people and I am quick in understanding who can help me with what, in the benefit of my client, so sometimes the solution you were searching for a long time might be just a few phone calls away if you talk to me.

I am straight forward and sometimes too quick, so quick that some consider my speed as aggressiveness.

I like to make difficult things look simple and challenging situations become easy going.

I am a “mentally over-efficient” person, for those not familiar with the term, i explain : my brain functions as a tree with countless ramifications, I can do several projects in the same time and still be happy to take over one more. I am a Certified Mind Mapping Instructor, because this method corresponds best to my way of being and acting.

I am good at teaching people to get along with each other, in business and outside the business world, I use Feng Shui and the Five Elements principles for creating project-based teams and Mind Mapping to increase their efficiency and give better results to the company.

Time and experience taught me the critical role of the image in shaping one’s personality. The way you perceive yourself translates directly into how you are perceived by others. Thus, focusing on improving your self-image to obtain success in all Fields is one of the core attributes of my consultancy sessions.

I wish to share all that I’ve learned and experienced with you. I want to help you turn your life around and become a stronger individual in the process.

38 years ago, I was alone when I embarked on the path I chose for myself. I wished then that I had somebody to guide me and hold my hand along the way.

For you, now, this is what I am here for.
