who is Bruna?

Just a human passionate about other humans. 

Hey, I'm Bruna, a Neuroscience-based Executive & Team Coach, and Keynote Speaker. Senior executives come to when they feel stuck, frustrated or unfulfilled or when they need to level up their team's game.

Working with me, they better understand themselves and how they function, expanding their thinking, acting and leading capabilities to succeed in a people-centred business world. They say I'm good at this because I'm gifted at listening, empathising, connecting, reframing and explaining how brain dynamics impact human behaviour in simple, practical and memorable terms.

If you're an executive needing a change, hit the button below and let's get the ball rolling.

Why clients worlwide chose me

Because in a world that forces them to live as Human Doings, I help them Think, Act and Lead as Human Beings again.

  • Serve as a trusted advisor to executives and past clients
  • Speak at international conferences and keynotes for global brands
  • Write a cool newsletter
  • Write my first book on how to feel alive at work

Hey! Welcome on board.

Let me share something that truly warms my heart:

"I've never felt so alive before", "I now know who I am and what I'm here for" and "I now understand how I function and feel unstoppable" are just a few of the phrases my clients often share with me. It's music to my ears!

(If only I had someone to guide me on my own journey of self-discovery, life would have been a whole lot smoother, no doubt!)

I was born in the most beautiful city in the world (yes, that's Rome) and have been living for over a decade in the most exciting (yes, that's London), working with global leaders who are shaping the world in extraordinary ways – an experience that's simply priceless.

I'm honoured to partner with The Preston Associates, a world leading executive coaching firm, and the NeuroLeadership Institute where I collaborate with world-class neuroscientists such as Dr David Rock and his exceptional team.

I'm always excited to connect with like-minded people!
