I greatly benefitted from speaking with Nadja years ago when I faced personal and professional obstacles that felt overwhelming. I also participated in her Women with Ambition Virtual Master Class, which was a truly empowering experience. Nadja understands the issues women face so well and believes in everyone's potential. She combines therapeutic techniques with problem-solving tools, creating a unique experience. I am grateful to have met Nadja and to have consulted her for guidance on "what next" as well as "what went wrong." Ultimately, our real homework lies with us, and working on our mindset can be challenging. But, Nadja's special workbook is precisely what we need to complete our homework effectively. Many thanks to Nadja for sharing her knowledge, life, and experiences.

Nadja has been my mentor since a half year. We were matched by the Women 4 Cyber Foundation and I am still really happy with this match. Nadja coached me during the set up of my own company InstinKct. She gave me valuable advice on how to establish a company. Her empathy and questioning techniques helped me grow as an entrepreneur. I recommend Nadja to anyone who looks for a mentor that has a great sense of humor, performs the art of active listening and masters the skill of being an inspirational leader.
