Palena is a wonderful coach and trainer. I significantly benefited from her leadership and guidance as a coach – a keen listener, she creates reflection, raising insight and self awareness. Very supportive, she motivated me to be a better leader, to increase my visibility despite my discomfort, and to take my career and leadership skills to the next level. I am so grateful for her workshops which are carefully designed to provide practical tips and tools, while also boosting motivation.
Vanessa Coulomb, Director of Country Programs, The Palladium Group
Palena very much lived up to her title as Executive Coach & Facilitator. I was impressed by her diligent approach, alongside her natural warmth. Her program, focus on visibility and networking for women, was really well received and got a positive feedback from our associates.
Palena played a key role in reinvigorating our women in cloud pillar at Ingram Micro by delivering 2 workshops for our global internal audience. What I liked most about her approach was the level of rigor and authenticity she brought. With considerable emotional intelligence, she encourage the audience to engage, participate and feedback openly which always makes for a more stimulating learning environment. The benefit to attendees was obvious from their comments on the day.
On a personal level, Palena was always highly professional, engaged and helpful. She has a charming personality.
Kelly Cuesta, Global Internal Communications Manager, Ingram Micro Cloud
Each of our the workshops Palena crafted were customized to fit our needs, and were executed with thoughtfulness, interaction, and the data to back it up.
Palena is as good a listener as speaker, which helped make our workshops be so successful. I would highly recommend her, and we look forward to the opportunity to work with her again.

I had the fortune of benefiting from Palena’s coaching and leadership training skills through an executive management programme offered by the United Nations System Staff College. Palena is a natural teacher, and she demonstrates an intentional and deliberate learning approach focused on participants. She achieves this by unpacking key leadership skills in a bit-sized fashion without overwhelming and doing so through relatable examples and scenarios paired with humour and humility.
My programme was conducted virtually – a two-hour webinar – and Palena kept us engaged throughout including by way of structured group sessions focused on ensuring all participants could be active. I would highly recommend Palena for anyone seeking coaching and learning that is user-centric, thought-provoking and insightful.
Edward Mishaud, Senior Advisor, SDG Lab at United Nations Office at Geneva
Palena does her workshop magic in a very smooth, confident, and stimulating way, subtly inducing self-reflection and problem-solving, providing tailored exercises into the trainings and providing useful resources, as well as distilling pertinent advice and suggestions.
I highly recommend her workshops to explore new horizons with Palena!
