I am a Business Change Consultant, coaching, and training clients from all over the world. Now, in the days of Corona, and the many travel restrictions imposed worldwide, I want to continue supporting clients and businesses where there is a need for change. But instead of providing my services at client locations, I now provide laser coaching services virtually via the internet, utilizing Zoom and Teleconferencing. Not only does this work out a lot cheaper for my clients, but offering my support during the laser coaching sessions also saves a lot of time on both sides.
