Meet the Founder of VetConsultancy!
I’m Elli Kalemtzaki, originally from Greece, but now living and working in Prague. I’m a qualified veterinarian, and have worked in the pet nutrition industry for more than 20 years, the last nine spent with a multinational in an international marketing role. My journey as a trainer and coach started in 2005 when in response to an impactful change in my personal life, I joined a self-awareness course.
It was during this 4 year course that I discovered the connecting threads between everything that was happening to me and most importantly, I discovered my calling. A Veterinary Leadership course in the US in 2006 was yet another life changing experience for me. I began to see my professional role with fresh eyes and became aware of a new mission to use my knowledge and skills supporting others to become successful. This realization transformed my career by giving me the confidence to move from a local position in a Greek company to an international role in a multinational company.
In the last decade I have traveled extensively and have met and worked with amazing people from many different countries and cultures. I gained valuable experience in coaching and mentoring individuals, leading development workshops and training business teams in different countries across Europe. A psychologist coach that I met during the Veterinary Leadership Course inspired me to become a professional coach. So I chose Adler International, an accredited school of coaching in Canada, and received my accreditation from the International Coach Federation in 2010. In the same year I became a certified facilitator of Team Coaching International. My fundamental belief is that we are all creative and resourceful beings, able to achieve the life we desire and deserve. I find the way the human brain works fascinating, and the fact that we can utilize our emotional and mental states to create our desired future absolutely thrilling. This is why I decided to add Neuro Linguistic Programming to my professional ‘tool kit’ and in 2012 I certified as a Practitioner of Neurolinguistic Programming. And then five years ago I relocated to Prague.
Whilst this new experience initially took me out of my comfort zone it also helped me to gain more clarity about my mission to help professional people uncover their unique talents and core values, and how to use strategies and tools to create a more fulfilling and successful life and business career. This is why in 2016 I launched Design for Life to offer coaching and training courses to working women in order to enhance their personal and professional skills and be happier and more successful. Then a year later I started out on an entirely new and independent journey, and left my corporate job to launch my own consultancy business. Combining my marketing with my coaching and training skills my focus now is to help veterinary practice owners build their dream practice, attract more quality clients and achieve their preferred work life balance. I look forward to connecting with you to help you see new possibilities in creating the business and life you desire!
Best wishes, Elli Kalemtzaki
