"To me, Ilona is a coach who combines her great knowledge of method with her own opinion and she is not shy to communicate if it helps the reflection work. She helped me to clearly elaborate blind spots and led me to effective solutions. She is able to formulate problems to the point and is able to challenge in a way that further develops. She does it all openly, honestly and with a great amount of humor. I was lucky to work with her for my personal development, as well as for the development of my communication skills. This has led me to great results and it was a lot of fun. I am looking forward to working with her again. If you are looking for a coach with an opinion and who is truly interested in the person she works with ... Ilona is your coach." Lars Keller, Senior Brand Manager Dermatology, AbbVie AG, Switzerland

"It was incredibly beneficial. What I found the most helpful is that with a small group of people as we did over the past two mornings she managed to tailor the training to our personal professional needs, while keeping in mind our personal ways of working and adapting accordingly. The theory yesterday morning was a great way to have a first approach and understand how it should be done. Covering not only the various possible outcomes of the different calls, as well as talking about the how to adapt our speech to the different people we talked about was very insightful. While doing the phone calls, she was very proactive in helping us find the right way to steer the call into securing a meeting. Personally, this is a fantastic basis for me to start and with practice I have absolutely no doubt it will greatly help me in my professional path. Even though I was quite nervous to cold call clients, she was able to be present and help me every step of the way. I am looking forward to use what I’ve learned tomorrow, and throughout my career as a consultant." Francisco Breitenfeld Sá Dantas, Researcher Operations Practice, Middle to Top Management recruitment, Badenoch & Clark, Geneva

"Dear Ilona, again many thanks for your lead/coaching through SwiftRe's team building off-site meeting in Rüschlikon. The mandate was to establish a good foundation in order to transform the 2 different teams into one team with one aspiration. This goal has been achieved and I personally was very pleased to see that we as a team have made good progress. Even more in the daily work I can sense that we are really growing as one team, namely the SwiftRe team. Your illustration of the 4 phases (forming, storming, norming, performing) helped us to understand the team building process. Furthermore, we appreciated your flexibility and to change the focus as the back log (legacy issue) is blocking quite a large amount of the resource and needs to be solved before we can move ahead. This is important for the team." Chung-Shik Mangold, Head of SwiftRe, Director Europe, Middle East & Africa, Swiss Reinsurance Company Ltd
