I see businesses as a way to show the world who you are, what you stand for and to make an impact while creating success on your own terms.
As a result of working with me, you will have a deeper awareness of yourself and your business, a sharp focus and a sustained high performance.
To my consultancy and coaching practice, I bring a combination of senior management experience and leadership development in a start-up and corporate environment of over 200 software engineers. Prior to moving to the Netherlands, I worked at an international software company where I oversaw the professional development of 700+ employees. Later, in my role as a Learning & Development Director, I managed the largest company training initiative for software engineers in Bulgaria - four programming academies with 12,000 online participants.
At present, I manage a performance consultancy on a mission to help people live courageous lives. We envision a future where who we are and what we do is perfectly aligned, positively impacting the world.

Bela has helped me to put my talents, passion, and purpose into practice. When we first met I was full of enthusiasm but did not know where to start. Bela has a rich toolkit of various coaching techniques that she used to help me progress on my path. Her interventions were not only helpful and valuable but also very enjoyable and insightful. I look back on a very important time of my life, where I was fortunate enough to have Bela on my side. It resulted in a great start of my business the Women Entrepreneur Club.Marja Godvliet, Founder of the Women Entrepreneur Club, Netherlands
Bela is a fantastic coach who provided me with invaluable support in setting up my business. As a self-confessed perfectionist daunted by the fear of failure, I found that Bela’s motivating and encouraging style helped me pinpoint my core ambitions and priorities incredibly quickly whilst her pragmatic approach allowed me to move forward without fear. Bela is a true sparring partner, who challenged me in a constructive way and provided me with tools to confront my own self-limiting beliefs. I fully recommend Bela as an excellent coach and look forward to working with her again in the future.Ruth Coates, Founder and Marketing Consultant @ Above & Beyond Marketing Solutions

People say change is hard. It is, but it is much more achievable when you have Bela as your executive coach and mentor to guide you through the process. I was lucky to have her as my coach during a period of time when some significant changes in my professional career took place. I initially did not understand or comprehend the need for an executive coach. But as the old saying goes, “you don’t know what you don’t know”. Bela gave me a different point of view by asking the right questions, pushing me to focus on specific areas, analyzing situations together and offering a different perspective and insights on numerous issues. She proved extremely valuable in methodically directing me on setting and adjusting my professional goals, their prioritization, motivating me and keeping me committed by regularly tracking progress. I am well prepared to continue to learn and grow. Know that you make a difference!”Apostol Lolov, Asset Manager – Energy Projects, Sofia, Bulgaria
Working with Bela has been an absolute honor and a pleasure for me. She understood where I’m coming from and from Day 1 she was able to help me set the right goals and objectives. I’m writing this almost two months after our last session and I feel more and more confident in regards to accomplishing those objectives and I’m happy to say Bela has been a major factor in helping me achieve that.Elisaveta Radeva, Account Executive, Telia Carrier, London UK
