In the Spirit of Gratitude


“When we give cheerfully and accept gratefully, everyone is blessed.” ― Maya Angelou

That is why in the run up to Christmas and in the spirit of gratitude for all that I received this year I am offering for the next 3 weeks my time and expertise for training and development advice, coaching, career’s change guidance and personal counselling.
If you are planning a big change in your career, if you have a goal to achieve and you feel stuck, if you are considering new directions of studies, or if you simply want to chat to clear your mind about new ideas, I am here to serve you.

Please email me at: r.carta@operaritaltd.com to book some time.

With Gratitude
