About My Business:


An experienced Learning & Development profesional specialising in the development of management and personal development skills. As an integral part of the Organisational Development (OD) function within the Energy Trading sector, Maria designed, led and delivered in-house management development initiatives across Europe prior to becoming a Certified Professional Coach. After over a decade of developing and implementing highly successful change management and performance management strategies, Maria created Strada Innovation in 2003 as her own business to work with a wide range of people and leading organisations. Since then she has shared her knowledge and skills designing and delivering programmes across key areas of Communication, Performance Management, Soft Skills and Coaching. A fully qualified and experienced Certified Professional Coach, Maria is passionate about working with individuals and organisations to enable them to up their game and increase their performance. As well as working with one-to-one clients, Maria’s interventions have provided increased business benefit to both corporate and public sector clients; they include: E.On UK, Mysis Banking Division-New York, Microsoft, Astra-Zeneca Pharmaceuticals, Carillion, Costain, Mabey Hire Services, Hutchinson Port Felixstowe, Royal Caribbean-Italia, Suffolk Probation Services and Suffolk Coastal District Council. "My experience is geographically diverse and I enjoy the challenge of working in different cultures, countries and organisations. I work with global companies as well as SMEs. Both my business and individual coaching clients are spread across the world, but I also value the opportunity to bring a service to my own local community in and around my home region of East Anglia in the UK". "I believe that my key strengths are a positive attitude with an enthusiastic drive to deliver in a demanding environment". "In addition, I have a personal, strong commitment to working with women in leadership".
