You can find me working at the forefront of the fourth industrial revolution and its many possibilities and challenges. I am passionate about shaping the future of work, education and life - and manifest new ways of working, learning, living and being that encourage sustainable well-being and human flourishing. Because I believe "the best way to predict the future is to create it”. I am most valuable in high-paced, collaborative projects at the intersection of people, business and technology. Meanwhile, I like to help individuals and organizations (re-)define and navigate their path, while honoring their mental health, in the rapidly-developing context of the 21st century.
ALLOW ME TO INTRODUCE MYSELF
Instead of introducing myself, I want to show you this medley of video testimonials in which I ask the people I interact with daily how they experience working with me and having me around. I created this as an application for a hackaton and was so humbled by the responses, I extended it to be my introduction here. So, hello : )
WHAT I DO
Although my life and work encompass a wide variety of activities, I have managed to channel my many passions into a handful of services with which I believe I can help people and businesses. Some examples of that are to be found below. And if you're interested in working together, do reach out.
Do you want to live and work on your own terms, in harmony with (and ultimately, capitalizing on) the rapidly changing world around us? Are you ready to take ownership of your life, one day - one month - one step at a time? Do you want to redefine what success means to you, and then go out to get that? If this sounds like a journey you’d like to embark on, consider getting me as your very own coach and hype woman to guide you along every step of your saga.
Could you use some help in figuring out how to engage your (millennial) employees? Would you like to explore which of recent technological, cultural, economical and societal trends your business could exploit? Are you wondering how you're going to not only survive, but thrive, in a disruptive industry such as yours? Perhaps I can help. Invite me for a company visit and let's start exploring the opportunities.
Teaching & Facilitation
Do you agree that life skills would be well of integrated in public education? Do you believe emotional intelligence is as, if not more, crucial than cognitive intelligence in order to succeed in life? Do you witness all the human potential wasted to insecurities and fear? I have developed and taught a course consisting of multiple workshops in self-leadership, focusing on personal and professional growth as well as self-care.
LIFE IN 100 CHARACTERS
my best decision ever was to quit uni - and freelance around the world,
start a Hip Hop blog empire and manage an independent record label instead
my 2nd best decision ever was to go back to school
- to study international business innovation
fast forward 1 year and find me teaching webdesign to 110 1st-year-bachelor-students,
doing hackweeks and internships in London, facilitating workshops for the government of Valencia,
doing various consultancy gigs and working for The School of Life - all the whilst studying, blogging
and trying to figure out how to live life well in our millennial era.
and this is only just the beginning ..
”She brought tons of positive energy to the hackweek and encouraged collaboration between the team members, trying to bring people together and on the same page. Nadia lacks nothing to become a great leader.”
"Nadia seems to be a born mentor (she is more than a teacher in the traditional sense); people look for her help on many topics and she willingly and freely shares whatever knowledge and experience she has gained. Her preparation of the curriculum and the classes was very organized and meticulous and showed true understanding of the IBIS Educational Philosophy."
