David B. - Director, Latin Beginnings Dance Co

I find it especially intriguing how Magna has implemented her philanthropist passion into a practicable application to dance, social communication, and a way of life! She has the grand fortune of being an incredibly aesthetic person both inward and outward, which has inspired me, among countless others, to evolve as a person and blossom to the full extent of our potential, while upholding the human value.

Patricio P. - CEO, Jobomas

I’ve attended many events where Magna was presented as a main instructor and speaker. She showed a great connection with her public and was always a pleasure to hear what she had to say. Her teachings are always fully clear as she has a deep understanding of the subjects she speaks about.

Cedric M. - Portfolio Manager, Roche

In Magna’s group coaching session with people from all around the world, of different languages, cultures, it felt like we all belonged and there were no borders between us. She made the difficult task of working with such a diverse group of people look easy. I have applied the same strategy through my career with the teams I work with. A simple and powerful model.

Fang K. - Design Director, Marner

Magna has a unique ability to deliver super abstract ideas in easy to understand methods. She brings not only the dance technique but also incredible communication and influence skills. Her ability to inspire people, her larger than life energy and her passion to create impact makes her workshops one of the best salsa experiences that I’ve ever had.

Sabrina O. - Launch Manager, Swarovski

By examining what is happening, discovering the obstacles and challenges, Magna always gives you the feeling of being heard and understood. At the same time she manages to sensitively push you out of your comfort zone when it’s needed. Magna has the incredible ability to nail a problem down and support you in finding the right course of action while enabling you and encouraging you to conquer your fears.

Mary P. - Marketing Manager, L'Oreal

Magna helped me prepare my introduction speech and coached me on how to improve my presentation skills and structure my speech, making pauses in the right moments, playing with intonation, using the right wording and phrasing and how to feel more confident speaking. I delievered a great speech and received terrific positive feedback. She is the BEST MENTOR EVER! I can’t say enough “thank yous” for her kindness, patience, and guidance.
