“Clàudia has been such an inspiration and support during this past year, ever since I met her and started my coaching sessions with her. She's helped me both at personal and professional development levels, always having your best interest as her main objective to achieve. I had previously heard very good recommendations about herself and her job and after having met her I can truly understand how dedicated she is. As a client you appreciate this dedication, passion and effort that Clàudia puts in into every session, while offering in a safe space for sharing and feeling comfortable. I would definitely consider Clàudia as one of my top highlights this year and will for sure continue "benefitting" from her enormous help.”

Belén Dorado Prado –  BBA student at ESADE (last year)

“Clàudia has been my mentor through ESADE and has guided me in the process of rethinking and reflecting on my professional career and where to go. She helped me to value my professional career, my CV and to visualize and become aware of what I really enjoyed working. With her advice she has allowed me to break mental barriers, to address what I really wanted and to dare to do it in English. She has guided me in the process of changing to a new job, which has materialized in the midst of the COVID 19 crisis. Clàudia has transmitted me energy, optimism, passion, motivation, balance, clarity, desire to advance and improve. In her mentoring sessions, in addition to sharing her extensive experience, she used coaching tools, NLP, emotional intelligence, leadership ... through pleasant talks such as after-dinner talks with friends. It has been an extraordinary process.
Clàudia has a great ability to see the strengths in her mentee and to make them emerge. I totally recommend her. A 10!”

Anna Muxí Tresserres – Financial Controller at Nova Biomedical Iberia

“I have been fortunate to have Clàudia Cornella among my closest collaborators during the eight years that I have served as Minister of Finance of the Government of Andorra (2011-2019). In fact, he has been my right hand and an essential person when designing and executing the road map that we set ourselves to transform and homologate Andorra and its financial sector to the standards of transparency and cooperation in tax matters, or implement the standards more demanding in regulation and supervision.

As Secretary of State, she created, organized and led the team that manages the ministry's international relations. As an official interlocutor in international organizations such as the European Union, the OECD or the IMF, Andorra has been established as a rigorous country, committed to and participating in common international objectives.

 

But beyond her unquestionable professional achievements, if I had to highlight and thank one aspect of Clàudia it would be her commitment: with her work, with her team, with me and with her country. A commitment that translates into quality work, tireless dedication, enthusiasm and great generosity. Excellent professional and person.”

Jordi Cinca Mateos – Parter & Founder at Giraffe Strategy (For 8 years Minister of Finance of the Government of Andorra)

“I worked with Clàudia when she was a Secretary of State for the Government of Andorra, and I was the sovereign rating analyst for S&P Global. Clàudia was always extremely professional in our interactions. She provided all the required information with a high degree of transparency and timeliness and was a very effective liaison between our company and the rest of the government. Clàudia showed a very strong command of all technical aspects of her job. She developed tasks on her own that in larger governments would be assigned to entire departments. I can vouch for her ability to deal with complex tasks, and her strong leadership and management skills. It was a pleasure to work with her.”
