“Katrin helped me to realize my strengths for managing teams and projects, as well as high appetite for risk. It's been 10 months since we started working together. Since then I've quit my job, hired a team, and we are preparing to bring our product to the market soon! It's been truly transformational working with Katrin! I would recommend her to people who are looking to create career changes that are outside of their comfort zone.”

Anthony London-based private equity investor-turned entrepreneur


“Katrin gave me the structure and confidence to get my current job and for that I am forever thankful. We discussed my resume, my strengths and weaknesses, jobs within my industry that matched my personality and would allow me as an individual to flourish and most importantly how to find those jobs. She came from a recruitment background in a similar field of interest and that expertise obviously showed! I could not have asked for a better experience or a better coach!”

Niall Asset Management Analyst


“It's been my dream of many years to work for a private equity fund, and the timing felt right to make the transition. I chose to work with Katrin because I knew her as an experienced private equity recruiter. She helped me see that this kind of transition is possible, if I think creatively about positioning my value, and follow through her step-by-step job-hunting process. For my current role, I was in competition with experienced PE professionals, as well as investment bankers, and I was thrilled to be chosen for the role. ”

What I enjoy the most is her thinking out of the box which can find a solution to the most challenging situations. Overall, Katrin’s coaching program was a fantastic investment in my development and has helped me a lot to shape my future career path.”
