Melissa Andrada

Creative L&D Leader and Coach

London

Executive Coach, Spiritual Teacher & Strategic Advisor Melissa Andrada brings a deeply personal and interdisciplinary approach to her workshops where strategy meets spirituality, head meets heart. Melissa will share some of her own experiences and battle scars as a leader -- from serving on the board of a social justice nonprofit as a 17-year-old student to innovating the business model of a 50-year-old branding consultancy as an intrapreneur to re-inventing learning at the workplace as the former COO of a fast-growing, VC-backed startup.

What students have said about Melissa’s workshops:

"I found your class powerful and you are truly inspiring. I admired your ability to speak up for yourself when something's not right, your confidence and everything you say, you say with such passion.”

"I gained so much and now have a even better outlook on the job I am doing. I am really excited to see how I can implement the new approaches I learnt last night and continue to grow as a person.”
