"Working with Roberta has brought about a sea change in the way with which my business operates as well as how it neatly slots into my life around it. By studying the business' inner workings and subsequently helping me to create appropriate and aspirational targets both with work and life, Roberta’s business and life experience, combined with her personable approach, has proved incredibly helpful in triggering the growth and on-going success of the business, as well as a stronger sense of direction for me on a personal level. The two are inextricably linked for me, so to have the benefit of both the coaching and the consulting has proved especially useful.

"For the repositioning of our Japanese brand in the US, Roberta worked very closely with both our teams in Japan and USA. Her research included thorough interviews to our leadership team members and many of our employees. Those interviews, her research, and workshops, have proven to be instrumental to bring awareness into the core of our company, as well as the cultural differences among the two teams. Her commitment, unique psychological approach, and strategic insight throughout the entire process were reassuring. She gained a deep understanding of our strengths and identified strategic opportunities; she helped us to reconcile differences while building consensus. We rediscovered a common purpose: The very essence of our company. Thanks to her, our executive team has become stronger than ever. It was a pleasure working with her, and we greatly appreciated her knowledge, talent, and dedication.
Alan Sasayama, Managing Director, Plan Do See USA, Tokyo & NYC
"Roberta is a unique thinker. A strategist who elegantly combines practical concepts with a deeply sensitive understanding of people, psychology and the human condition. Roberta knows how to get in the "grey area" of the mind and identify solutions that are distinctively relevant and have a heart. She is not just an exceptional professional but also an exceptional human being and a joy to work with.
