The personalised career and life coaching helped me regain confidence in my abilities and in myself, and to be now fulfilled in an activity that is in line with my values and life project.” — J.H.

I contacted Forwaves for a career coaching and assessment after a mass layoff in my industry. There were no other professional openings for my profile despite a strong academic and professional track record. Forwaves helped me to take stock of my situation and focus on hands-on methods to reroute my career in a positive and proactive manner. The personalized service and advice I received was second to none in getting me back on my feet and the insights provided by the tried and tested methods were truly eye opening and empowering. Forwaves deserves my heartfelt thanks and praise.” — R.L.
