I first came into contact with Madalena in 2010 after my self belief in my ability to deliver high quality research and teaching had been shattered. Being dignosed as having an Autistic Spectrum Disorder had created barriers in my mind which made it difficult for me to engage with students and researchers. Over many months Magdalena helped me to breakdown those barriers and to expand the range of social and professional interactions that I felt comfortable with. She showed great skill in identifying the right small, but challenging steps, I needed to take. The result was a journey in which I learned that many of the barriers that I thought existed were not real. For those that are real I have the capability of learning the skills necessary to overcome them. The result is that I now teach and work with people around the world with a confidence that did not exist before. Thanks to Magdalena I am aware of the limitations that my condition brings, but I am not defined by those limitations. Over the last few years I have occasionally met with Magdalena who has continued to support my development. The key thing I have learnt from her is that being scared of interacting with others is something that exists only in my mind and that I can overcome that fear. Thank you Magdalena.
I attended a great workshop for doctors Magdalena delivered. It was on resilience and life-work balance and it was very inspirational and motivational. Magdalena delivered a phenomenally rich content with an engaging brilliance. She is very knowledgeable and she owns a broad, holistic, well-grounded in science and rigorous approach. As a person Magdalena is a true professional, with a very captivating approach, generous and quick-minded. I highly recommend attending Magdalena’s events because the workshop was a mind and sense blowing experience. It was definitely worth my time!
Magdalena spoke recently at the Portsmouth Hospitals Research Conference. As a GP, it was inspiring to hear of successful strategies to reflect and effectively manage an ever demanding workload with multiple roles. As a result i am considering how Magdalena’s techniques could help in my own career development and day-to-day survival, as well as how she could help support our practice/businesses to thrive in an increasingly difficult environment.
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.
Fantastic! Amazing and motivating! I benefited from the programme much, much, more that I expected. Feel I’ve got the skills to move forward with the next steps of my career now. Very thought provoking. I enjoyed all of it and especially day 2 for helping everything slot into place for me.
Literally life changing! This programme revealed problems I didn’t realise were there and that were holding me back. It gave me confidence and a positive approach to change aspects of my working life. I really enjoyed Magdalena’s way of presenting thought-provoking ideas, the interactive elements and the variety involved as well as her realistic and gentle approach to change.
She is an inspirational and dynamic speaker. Her talk was well structured and she had authentic connection with the audience. Her topic was motivational and moving. I highly recommend Magdalena as a Public Speaker.
Magdalena seems to know just how to reach her audience so that they sit up straight, take notice and listen intently as she feeds them pearls of wisdom to consider when looking at ones growth and development whether it be personal or professional…after she speaks, everyone feels a little closer to their dreams and renewed with energy to get started!
