Magdalena ran a parallel workshop at the recent Staff Developers Conference 2015 on Tapping Hearts and Minds to Enable People to Thrive in a VUCA World. She introduced us to her 4 step coaching approach. Even in a very short time is made us pause and recognise what we could do differently. I always find Magdalena interesting and inspiring to listen to – she has a knack of making me think very differently to the way I do normally. Never a bad thing!

I recently attended coaching skills masterclass training day by Magdalena, hosted by the Association for Coaching. It was an exceptional day. Magdalena has a very special presence in the room, being able to offer a true fusion of heart and mind. Her knowledge and experience of applying the neuroscience with coaching is brilliant. I have come away equipped with a range of new strategies to apply to my own personal development as well as use in my practice with clients. This training day combined with the books have opened up new dialogue for me. I have been able to move through a number of blocks as a result of this day. If you get the opportunity to hear her speak, or work with her, grab it with both hands and be very excited!

I recently attended an event lead by Magdalena for HR leaders in London organised by the CIPD. I was most impressed with her approach to personal development and the neuroscience element was covered perfectly for the non- expert and made fascinating. I thoroughly enjoyed this event (I missed my tube stop on the way home as I was distracted reading her book) and would recommend anyone to search out Magdalena out and invest some time listening to her.

I recently attended an event where Magdalena presented on “everyone can be brilliant.” Her presentation was thought provoking and I connected with the content particularly about aligning hearts and minds and the research she presents on the impacts of the nervous system to being your best. Would thoroughly recommend.

I recently attended a brilliant masterclass delivered by Magdalena. The masterclass focused on her grid method, which helps promote work/life balance and overall wellbeing and empowerment. To say I came away absolutely blown away is an understatement. This is a must-attend masterclass for anyone interested in improving wellbeing and productivity – their own and/or those of their clients. I’m already using the method and can feel the benefits of increased focus and energy – as well as identifying areas I’m neglecting and need to work on. More than the above, what made this a different masterclass was Magdalena’s style. She’s incredibly warm, passionate about her subject, has a wealth of knowledge and great sense of fun. In short, an inspiration. If you ever get an opportunity to attend one of her workshops do not delay. Get yourself booked on. It’ll be the best investment you make.

I attended Dr Magdalena Bak-Maier’s, The Grid Empowerment Model as part of British Psychological Society Masterclass CPD series. It was absolutely fantastic. It’s a beautiful blend of science & simple yet profound tools, for immediate applications. I would whole heartedly recommend this to anyone, practitioner or as a personal development tool.

I attended an integration workshop led by Magdalena at the AICTP (Association of Integrative Coach Therapist Professionals) conference in January 2018. The whole workshop was incredibly moving and inspiring and reminded me of the importance of paying attention to all parts of ourselves to feel truly integrated. Not only did I benefit, but so did my fellow workshop attendees, and I have since used the exercises with several of my clients – with profound effects.

We had the privilege of having Magdalena deliver her keynote titled: “Improving Performance With Heart and Mind Coaching” during the IPSS annual conference in Amsterdam this year. The combination of her engaging presentation style,natural warmth and clear and concise way in which she presented her thought provoking content both inspired and motivated the audience. Leaving us all feeling enriched and wanting to be more thoughtful educators and people. Audience feedback was over whelminging positive with comments such as “Inspirational!!”, “Life changing” and “A whole new perspective on how to optimise learner and my performance” to name but a few.

“I had the pleasure of attending a workshop with Magdalena in Sao Paulo – Brazil. I did not know her and had few expectations. At the end of the day, I was pleasantly surprised. It was amazing. The concepts passed in a simple, direct and highly functional way enchanted me. The new approach she brought to our famous TO DO LIST was immediately implemented in my routine. I recommend everyone to know the proposal and use it. You’ll be surprised just like me.“

“Magdalena was one of our keynote speakers at our AEG CONNECT Summit 2018 – our global company conference hosted at The O2 London.  She delivered a fantastic session to 600 employees on ‘Building a bridge to a healthier you and a better us’. The inspirational session focused on her book the Get Productive Grid and was a great way to focus the audience to think of what’s important in our lives to maintaining a great work-life balance, whilst being more productive at work. 300 of our senior leaders from across the globe were also given the book and we have since received extremely positive reviews mainly that that they enjoyed the neuroscience and coaching approach, and they all have some new strategies to apply for own personal developments.  Thank you so much, we look forward to working with you again soon.“
