WHAT OUR CLIENTS SAY
The Boardroom helped me to articulate my personal value proposition. Besides that, it offered me something I lacked and urgently needed to develop: a network which I could use to find new opportunities. It was astounding how much it helped me to ‘sell’ myself while staying close to who I am. The most valuable part was that I was supported throughout the process: facing the new realities, finding the best ‘war’ stories to tell and finally closing a new contract. I experienced an extremely competent team that was able to guide me through an important phase of my professional life. I wouldn’t have learned this nor been able to make good progress without their guidance.
P. A. – Senior Vice President, FMCG
After more than 20 years with an international corporation, 12 of it as its CEO, I was due for a professional reorientation. It was much more difficult to start the process than I had expected. Thanks to The Boardroom, I became aware of the broad range of opportunities that waited for me to be analysed and I quickly found out how to proceed. My personal consultant helped me to fine-tune my appearance and my written documentation. We jointly identified my target employers and he introduced me to various key decision makers, enabling me to sign a new contract within a short period of time.
G. G. – CEO Car Industry Supplyer
Every Senior Executive Coaching is multi-facetted and very personal. Each individual has his/her personal and professional history and deserves the respective treatment. Respect, integrity and empathy are prerequisites for the development of an in-depth relationship at eye level between the client and consultant. The Boardroom acted always in a goal-oriented manner and guided me as a client in a particularly effective way. I became able to identify my priorities, my key strengths and to focus on my potential. My consultant – a lateral thinker – encouraged me to open up to new ideas. This allowed me to pursue a completely new career path. In times of change, The Boardroom is a true source of inspiration and a precious address for people looking for a new professional engagement.
S. T. – CFO Chemistry
Top Managers focus on their work and responsibilities. The development and maintenance of their personal profile, their network and their own potential are usually dealt with inadequately. Lucky is who has access to his personal Boardroom to help appreciate his issues and have professional help in correcting them.
F.D. – General Manger
