Vicki Samootin

I help people to manage career and personal change through using evidence based methodologies, strength based coaching, mindfulness techniques and meditation to maintain well-being. I have a relaxed pragmatic and professional approach which allows me to build trust and rapport quickly to help clients realise their next steps with confidence.

Addressing well-being during change, is the most important thing that we all can nurture when experiencing challenges in life and in our careers. Being aware of our needs helps us to live to what we truly value to become the best versions of ourselves. I weave in mindfulness techniques to help still the mind and provide clarity of thought for sound decision making.

My business experience has been in learning and development, change management and recruitment. I have coached hundreds of executives at C-suite, EGM and mid-tier management level. I provide a trusted and an empathic space so as individuals feel supported through career or life change to become more empowered, engaged employees and fulfilled individuals.

  • Banking and Finance
  • Tertiary Education
  • Insurance
  • Television and media
  • Transport
  • FMCG

I partner with my clients in a pragmatic and insightful way, adding a dose of humour to diffuse what sometimes can be a challenging process. To see my clients, arrive at the ‘a-ha’ moment is exciting, the essenz of an insight is where the possibilities in life and work can be realised.
