Training and teaching communications and design

My training programmes to enhance your written and spoken communication skills.

My programmes are backed by copywriting experience at Saatchi and Saatchi, followed by my own marketing communications agency specialized in Geneva’s international companies including Du Pont de Nemours, Hewlett Packard, the City of Geneva, Chesebrough Ponds and Universal watches. Searching for a bank as a client, I was asked by Safra Republic to set up and head the internal and external communications for the five European banks of Republic National Bank. After the Bank, I spent five exciting years, managing publications produced worldwide at the International Committee of the Red Cross. I trained over 100 communication delegates, designing and running workshops worldwide focusing on concept, target audience and publication production.

I lecture at EU Business school in Communications and English for Business and for academic purposes (BA) as well as Design (MBA). Previously I lectured at UBIS.  I hold a Post Graduate Certificate in Creative Writing from Kingston University London and am CELTA certified to teach English as a foreign language.

Relationship coaching

My training programmes to help your relationship communications for singles and couples.

In addition to my studies, my coaching is backed by personal experience of late marriage. I returned to university to take a BA and then an MSc in psychology from Geneva University and decided to research later marriage, a phenomenon particularly prevalent in the humanitarian and ex-pat worlds. My book on late marriage, Holding Out for a Hero, Five Steps to Marriage Over 40 came out in 2015 following university research on dyads and empathy.

I trained in Cognitive Behavioural Therapy, stress management and treatment of eating disorders, anxiety and performance anxiety as well as internships at the Geneva Hospital Nutrition Unit and at Anima riding stables specialized in animal assisted therapy. I am a certified CTI co-active coach.
The book will become an online course this year.

I am  a FOCCUS marriage preparation facilitator. FOCCUS is a computer-based inventory that can help you discover your couple strengths and weaknesses. You will learn to ask questions essential to your future happiness, before you marry and before they become an issue. Ever talked about money, partner’s children, sharing a home or future in-laws? FOCCUS covers these and many more vital questions before they become issues.
