I first got to know Alma when reading her success story on the website of The Coaching Institute and was captured by her vision. At the time I needed some clarity and direction in my professional life as well as in some private matters. Alma is a great combination of a mentor and a coach, as she is an experienced business professional and has the knowledge, the expertise and the empathy of a coach. I enjoy our sessions together and am always sure to receive professional advice if needed or to be challenged by her. Having English as my third language was never a problem in our conversations as Alma brings along a lot of flexibility in mind to be able to understand not only the language but also to be open for cultural differences.

Alma, your presentation at CPA Small Business forum was uplifting and entertaining. You have demonstrated a great deal of knowledge in the area of managing change at the personal and organisational level. Your approach is very down to earth and using many practical examples that the audience could relate to. What a refreshing speaker and one that should be shared with many other people .You presented in a manner that was both humorous and entertaining, while still getting your message across to the entire audience. You connected with the audience really well and established an amazing trust and rapport.I am a frequent attendee of CPA events and your presentation was one of the best that I have ever attended, if not the best. Again, thank you and I hope to see you presenting soon again.

I attended Alma’s presentation through CPA Australia on the topic of ‘Change Management’. Alma was absolutely spot on the issue. Change management is such a difficult subject and challenging area. I found her presentation very knowledgeable and engaging. The real life examples backed up by tons of experiences are invaluable. I came out with quite a few important notes and tools she very generously shared. Her enthusiasm about the positive results and passion for the better are very empowering and inspiring. Definitely one of the best Change Management pioneers!
