Mark Cowell

Mark Cowell

Melbourne (Australia)

I am a postgraduate qualified Career Counsellor with a creative, action orientated outlook who aims to help people that have not found the normal pathway to career decisions an easy fit. Before careers work, I tried and tested my way through careers at extreme opposite ends in the world of work. From working on community programs, helping our most disadvantaged children and young people, to working in advertising on some of the world's most recognised brands, to working across Government. I have first-hand experience getting 'unstuck' and juggling the challenges that come with reinventing yourself as an adult, complemented by formal study in counselling and career development.

Elena Chere

Elena Chere

Russia, Australia

I help women who are facing a big change such as moving countries or becoming a mother to build an exciting purpose-driven career. I am a huge fan of actionable tools that help people create new ways of thinking, ignite emotions and motivate actions. I develop training programs and tools that help people identify their strengths and innate talents so that they build their careers aligned with their very own desires and values. I have created a quiz that helps people thrive in their roles by being true to themselves. The quiz has been done by 25,000+ professionals in Australia and became compulsory in some organisations. My experience of moving countries, building a dream career and assisting other people in developing their careers led me to the possibility to fulfil my life purpose - to help women create new results in their lives and uncover their true potential while enjoying the journey. I provide individual coaching, workshops and self-coaching programs online.
