Hello, I’m Marina Kogan and I started my career as a teacher of languages – at school and National Economics Academy in Irkutsk, Russian Federation and worked as an interpreter and translator at Siberian Scientific Institute of Earth Magnetism, Ionosphere and Magnetic Fields Distribution. When I moved to the UK I progressed my career in teaching, translating and developing business between British Institutions and Russian Enterprises and educational establishments.
I have worked as an International Marketing Manager, successfully identifying new business opportunities and developing the processes and structures of the management courses, business tourism, EFL, building a solid business network with the industrial companies and educational establishments in Eastern Europe.
I became a qualified Business and Life coach, motivator and NLP practitioner, accredited by the Coaching Academy. With 20 years experience of working with young people in various environments, and over 10 years experience in international business I draw on my own experience to produce valuable results, providing support, encouragement and motivation by challenging clients to realize their full potential.
Kogan Coaching programmes are designed to empower clients with the ability, focus and motivation that is required for achieving the client’s goal in every area of life.
I provide coaching to discover “inner brilliance” in my coaching clients using a variety of models and techniques throughout the coaching process, including Neuro-Linguistic Programming, which helps my clients optimise their existing skill sets and resources by overcoming limiting self-beliefs and achieve their goals in business and personal life. Identity coaching is a vital aspect and the range of workshops covers the important issues from confidence, stress management, work/life balance, with every participant developing his/her own action plan by the end of each workshop.
I now works with clients all over the world, from the South of France, to Russia and around the UK, and have also worked as a motivational speaker for various business groups and networks – North Wales Women Network, Chwarae Teg, Free2Network and I was invited as an after dinner speaker at British Professional Women organization.
Corporate clients including companies in Novosibirsk, Russian Federation invited me for coaching personnel from the top management to the shop floor assistants with successful results and continuing cooperation.
In my work I help client’s progress using my own Salutogenic coaching model, which was published in the International Journal for Evidence Based Coaching and Mentoring.
