What our clients say about us:


Dear Alisa. The experience and insights from working with you directly contributed to our success – THANKS! Department Head

It is good having this discussion with you Alisa, it has helped me think deeper as to what I really want for my career. Business Analyst

I have been extremely fortunate to have engaged Samara’s expertise to coach me through a major career change. Samara is very perceptive in her understanding of the human psyche, and has the ability to draw the very best out of people. She is very astute in understanding what recruitment consultants and prospective employers are looking for from job applicants, and providing coaching advice to job seekers on how best to represent themselves. Samara is a genuine “people-person” and a real pleasure to know and work with. Chief Information Officer
