Word of mouth from our clients in Romania

Alan Sikora, Vice President Technical, URSUS Breweries SA Romania – Subsidiary of SABMiller plc. 

“It was a great pleasure for me to work with Petra and Ian and our Ursus senior management team on an introduction to coaching. As a qualified coach it was refreshing for me to observe how much passion and interest Petra uses in delivering her training. She uses novel techniques and introduces fun into all aspects of the course. I enjoyed taking part in the 3 sessions that she facilitated and I received great feedback about her and her partner from all the participants. Of course one day will never be enough to “teach” someone coaching but the interest that was generated by the variety of the exercises will definitely stimulate the participants to practise more and use a coaching style in their daily interactions with their teams.

Thanks Petra and Ian – it was a great experience to meet you and I enjoyed the opportunity to work with you.”

Christian Wienands  – Commercial Manager Takata –  Arad

“When we contacted you I was looking for a special training on motivation for my team. Something beside the “out of the box” standard trainings you might get offered on the market. What made us choose solutionsurfers was your approach on the topic by using “coaching” as core of the motivation tools. It worked out very well. I found the team highly involved in the training, you saw the energy constantly rising, to a level where you could feel it in the room. In the feedback and coaching exercises I recognized that the colleagues gave true and honest feedback to each other, which can only happen if a high level of trust exists between the team members. I felt the distance between my management team shrinking.

The training provided by you did not only give us a very good toolset how to motivate our employees, it also gave us a good understanding about the basics of “coaching”. In addition I felt that we finalized the training as a better team, with team members standing closer together.

Thank you very much again for this very good experience.”


Aurelian Sin – Danone IS Director South East Europe

Good people management is about listening and asking powerful questions. That’s what Solution Focus is all about. To focus more on what is already working, to recognize the signs of success and how can you build up on them. It is a shift of perspective and gives a lot of positive energy.”


Andreea Pandelache  – Orange  OD Consultant

“The training is like entering into a new state of mind, a new world and that is wonderful! It shifts the way of thinking from seeing mainly the negative aspects in a situation in recognizing the positive,  the options and resources. It is amazing how it changed my whole way of living!  It’s like you have a new pair of glasses!”

“I am more efficient now in my interactions and how I organize myself and I have the structured questions to support others in finding their solutions.“


Diana Voicu – MMM Consulting

“This training gave me a lot of energy, it gives me the lightness to deal with any challenge life confronts me with. That’s a very profound change.

I could immediately use the tools I learned here and put them into practice in my work as a trainer and coach. From the very first day the training builds up the confidence to grow and to practice as a coach in a very natural way. That’s the key to success!”

“No matter if you are trainer, manager, HR manager or consultant when you start with the solutions focused approach you will fall in love with it.“


Mircea Iancu  – Vodafone  Retail Strategy Manager

“This course was a wonderful experience that opened my horizon. I see now thing from a different perspective. Even in a glass which is almost empty is a drop of water.“

I became an even better people manager through this course. I now apply in a much more structured way coaching in business context and I see the success it brings.“


Andra  Antonescu –  Deloitte HR Manager

“During the six months course I discovered a new way of living. I changed my mindset, my communication style and approach to people, also how I am looking at my children. I pay a lot more attention on what people are saying and the communication becomes much simpler. Solutions are coming up in a very easy and natural way without putting pressure.”


Crenguta Jantea – Partner at Expense Reduction Analysts

“It was a revelation for me to discover such a simple technique and yet very deep. It helped me to see the freedom to get detached from a problem and to see it as a simple situation that has to have different solutions and different perspectives.“

This program is easy to access and is applicable as well in the personal life as in the professional life. I work as a finance consultant and I now involve the client much more in finding the best solution. I intend to apply coaching questions even more in the future.“


Laura Ionescu – Coach

I learned to concentrate on what is working specially in difficult situations. To identify and use my resources and this way I make much faster progress and reach my objectives.

I appreciate the good and clear structure of the program that builds up confidence to use the tools from the very first day.“
