We are delighted to announce that Magda Niculescu has joined Aesara Partners’ Executive Coaching and Consulting team as of November 2020. Aesara Partners is headquartered in the UK (London, Edinburgh) with offices in France (Paris, Lyon), Ireland (Dublin), Asia Pacific (Singapore, Hong Kong, Brisbane, Melbourne), and the Americas (Boston, New York, Buenos Aires). Magda has run her independent Leadership and Change practice as an Executive Coach and Consultant for over a decade. Prior to this she built an international corporate career spanning 15 years in FMCG Marketing, Strategy and Innovation, with Procter and Gamble and Mars.
Magda commented: “I am delighted to join the Aesara team. We have been successfully collaborating since 2018 on different projects and I really value and share Aesara’s high professional standards, rigorous process and enthusiasm to design new and relevant coaching and change solutions.” She continued: “Aesara Partners have shown a real ability to innovate to support their clients through these difficult times with the introduction of P.A.U.S.E for resilience, crisis coaching clinics, virtual team coaching, Agile leadership programmes and scalable online transformation platforms. As a Partner I am extremely excited and proud to contribute to such an inspiring and diverse group of talented people from around the world.” Founding Partners; Jodie Gibbens, Nathalie Dassas and Nell Montgomery, commented: “We are thrilled to welcome Magda into our team. She brings warmth, enthusiasm and strong knowledge and expertise in human behaviour and neurosciences. Her extensive experience and strategic mind make her a great asset to our team and expert coverage for Central and Eastern Europe.” Magda’s focus will be supporting clients embarking on transformation projects across Europe as well as bringing her experience to support partners’ projects in Asia and America. This is a consequence of the way of working brought about by the dissolving geographic boundaries from the virtual connectivity accelerated in 2020. As a professional coach she has worked with over 500 people from more than 40 companies, predominantly large corporations, as well as smaller professional service companies, entrepreneurs (start-ups and scale-ups) and NGOs. Assignments ranged from coaching General Managers and Managing Partners to fresh gen Y leaders, from individual leadership challenges to more complex cultural and transformation programs, company restructures and leadership programs. Magda is fascinated by the human mind and decoding the intimate mechanisms that make people productive and fulfilled.
