ICF accredited coach, Watson team coach, corporate trainer, online marketing consultant
I find great satisfaction in helping others. As a coach and soft-skills trainer, I help my clients see and access their ’next better version’ of themselves; as an organisational development expert, I help companies see bottlenecks in processes, while also finetuning the value proposition design for respective target audiences.
My job as a coach is to make you think about yourself and your situation – changing your thinking habits and patterns, if you will. You may be a high-flying executive, a fresh graduate, a team lead, a mom, a budding entrepreneur – or the combination of the above.
I invite you to take off your mask and look at yourself candidly. I give you the tools and pose the questions, you provide the knowledge required for change, from within. Take a look around here and if you find something resembling your situation, call or write to me.

I’m experiencing that I can help more and more people with self-awareness based coaching, creating context and coherency. We take a look at ’where you are now’ and ’how can you reach your goal’ and explore all the possibilities in-between. Everyone starts their journey from a different starting point; there are common topics coming up over and over again: what do you show to the world, vs. how you are really; how your communication style impacts others; how you’re pigeonholed in your workplace; how you cope with stress to be resilient, yet sets you up for success; or clarifying your personal and professional goals – among many other things. As a coach and team coach, I provide a safe and trusting environment.
Successful organisations and leaders recognise that in order to have satisfied employees, people need to be given tasks and job roles where they can exploit their own strengths. When such motivation is present on an individual level (and people can add value to the company from their strengths), we may begin developing people’s skills and taking them on a journey that goes from ’good’ to ’great’ for both the individual, as well as the team. If something is out of shape and non-functioning, perhaps adding in communication issues as well, it is worth exploring cause-and-effect through leadership coaching, mentoring and team coaching tools. Take a look around and see if you would like to explore a topic further – and then let’s talk.
I help entrepreneurs create something new. Something you desire. Most people thinking about their new idea has many blank spots. Some of the things are ready in their minds, others are less so. I can help resolve these bottlenecks through coaching, so you have the courage and self-confidence to go on. I can effectively help by stepping in at any of the below milestones:
- brainstorm on a fluid idea and formulate it into a realistic business model
- identify target audiences (’What problem am I solving and for whom?’)
- Value Proposition Design for your target audience
- WordPress website design and repositioning
- Online marketing consulting
I can help my clients in 3 main areas:
1) as a Learning and Development professional, I develop, deliver and follow-up leadership training courses, ‘soft-skills’ training courses and also work as a coach with individuals on a 1:1 basis; and work with teams as a Team Coach.
2) I help leaders and entrepreneurs transform their business models, understand their target audience’s needs better and exploit the efficiencies of online marketing – to gain market share and new customers. While the above two areas may appear to require two very different ‘hats’, I have successfully mastered this challenge over the past 18 years, and thrive on delivering a multifaceted offer to my clients by continuously developing myself in relevant areas and providing high quality services.
3) I coach individuals and teams as an ICF accredited coach. My clients are entrepreneurs, leaders and accomplished individuals, who would like to go from good to great. They are often looking to find their own life purpose; and we touch upon many skills which are necessary to reach their bigger goals: communication with others, getting help from others, how to deal with your responsibilities as a leader, how to build self-confidence, collaborating with others, how to manage the multiple roles in life, building up a great team, how to handle and change being a perfectionist, or maintaining work-life balance. I also help individuals to find their calling and vocation with the tools of strengths coaching. I will help unearth your true potential by way of identifying your real talents and where those could be best used.

“My time working with Benedek has been invaluable. I was in a transition time with both life and business in 2020, and had way more questions than answers. While I felt like I was good at being aware enough to the problem that needed to be resolved, it was Benedek’s coaching that really supported me to come up with so many incredible a-ha’s, new awareness, and solutions that felt aligned and exciting. Each session I’d come in with my “thing I’m trying to figure out”, and his skill of deeply listening and exploring what is most relevant and important to me is what always served me to create a powerful outcome of our session, and big shifts in awareness and life in general. I now know the business and career I want, how I want it to balance with my family life, and how it plays into the big picture of how I want to show up and serve others. Benedek is great at helping you dig deep and uncover the real meaning and intention behind what you want, and I always leave our sessions feeling heard, understood and accomplished.” –Paula Haubrich, Certified Professional Coach, Lead Your Way Coaching Inc.
“How you talk about your job and yourself is very inspiring, because you’re always to the point and clearly articulate what you think is important.” – Moni
“You always add very useful examples to your topics, which you describe elaborately. I learn a lot from you and thankful that there is a person like you in my circles.” – Dora
“I would like to learn to be as objective as you are, and see things the way you see them. Thank you for showing me the solution through coaching to one of my problems.” – Judy
“I like to listen to your reasoning and thoughts on a particular subject, because you always shed new light on issues.” – Julie
“I was stuck in a static position for a long time and knew I should already have something on the ‘table’, but didn’t dare to decide on things which were only starting to be articulated inside me. I didn’t know how to proceed and progress, and whether I was heading in the right direction at all. During the Business Model You training Benedek held, I learned a lot about myself in a new way, and could understand the way to the ‘dream job’ finally. Also, when we put down the basics to paper, my coach (Benedek) showed me several practical things to do to progress – such as my new LinkedIn profile, how to do my CV in an attractive way, etc., which all brought me closer to my goal. I met a very direct, empathetic, yet highly rational person. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Benedek.” – Dori
Benedek worked with me in the elaboration of a Business Plan to introduce TropicOiL’s products in Europe. Ben’s experience and knowledge of the European market, his ability to see the big picture and his marketing and strategy skills were decisive in the shaping of a (Winner) Business plan that was chosen by the University of Oxford to represent it at the Moot Corp Business plan competition in Austin (Texas). I am very happy to recommend Ben as I consider him to be a very pro-active, passionate/committed and result’s oriented team player. I hope I will work with him again in the future.– Jose Andres Diaz, Director at IC Fundacion
I have known Ben through my MBA class, and his knowledge of marketing, attention to detail, marketing communication skills and his unique ability to look at things differently, would make him a asset to anyone thinking of taking him on in the advertising space. I wholeheartedly recommend him as a good fit for and advertising agency. – William De Laszlo,Managing Partner at Agathos
Benedek, as I know him, belongs to a rare kind of advertising professionals: he knows how to handle creative personnel, when to take things easy, and when to act harsh. also, he never had problems trasmitting the clients expectations and visions to us.
clients, as i recall, have always liked him, i guess that has something to do with his thorough way to handle things, and his ability to handle difficult and stressful situations with a cool head. – Balázs Pőcze, Founder and Creative Director, MITO Agency
