About Me


You are an expat facing relocation challenges, at home or at work. You want to move through this unsettling period quickly and start enjoying life in your new home.

You are a Multinational Corporation that wants to:

  • increase job performance and satisfaction of their Commercial/Marketing Teams
  • manage, grow and retain talent
  • offer your people individual, confidential and action oriented support, that perhaps group training alone cannot fully achieve.

You are an outplacement agency looking for a highly experienced coach to help your clients move through a difficult career transition.


If you are an expat, I can help you by:

  • Supporting your successful integration within your new home country and new job.
  • Assisting you in your job search and design a step change in your career abroad.
  • Seeing you through your new exciting (work/life) project off the ground
  • Working with you to secure a better work/life balance
  • Supporting you if you feel you are (almost) in a burnout situation & re-gain confidence
  • Being an anchor and support if you feel isolated.

With Corporations, I can work with you to:

  • Design customized and tailored coaching programmes to support individual development needs.
  • Foster job performance, cultivate creativity and bring increased job satisfaction
  • Support change management, job transitions and new team members.
  • Foster high talent, promote leadership, risk taking, drive, ambition and passion in the workplace.
  • Offer tools to help boost confidence, resolve work/life balance challenges and manage project priorities.

If you are an outplacement agency, I can help your clients move through their career transitions with success, clarity and confidence.


Marlene Rossi

Corporate Career & Life Transition Coach

Contact me today

I am a French citizen and classically trained marketeer, graduated from EM Lyon Business School. Since then I have gained more than 10 years experience working for leading international companies such as Kellogg, Unilever, Diageo, SC Johnson and Reckitt Benckiser.

My marketing career gave me tremendous opportunities to not only gain extensive business and management experience, but also to discover the world, taking me from France to England, then onto Australia, Switzerland, Warsaw and back to Switzerland since April 2018.

I have therefore developed a true ability to adapt to various cultural environments. Helping people discover their true potential and give them all the support they need to achieve their dreams is also a life-long quest for me.

So after 10 years in marketing, I decided to extend my professional skills and retrained as a Professional Coach, certified in 2011 from the IDC Coaching Institute in Geneva. I also completed IDC's Master Coach Programme in 2016. Both ICF accredited Coach Training Programmes enable me today to offer my clients an extensive number of coaching skills and approaches to suit individual needs and situations - from Ontological to Somatic and Appreciative Coaching Techniques.

My clients would say that I am a coach gifted with a caring yet authentic and action-focused attention and questioning. I coach in both French and English.

On a more personal note, my English husband James and I have two gorgeous girls, both proud to be born in Australia and to be enjoying all that the Swiss life has to offer.

If you have any kind of questions, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Work With Me

  • Presence-Based Coaching at the core of my practice: ability to create that unique space of trust and total presence that helps trigger breakthroughs, healing and deep transformation.
  • Expertise in Ontological, Somatic and Appreciative Coaching Principles
  • I have the natural ability to bring light and warmth where there is shade and hopelessness.
  • I will marvel with a deep sense of curiosity at your unique gifts and talents that might be transparent to you, and in turn give you the confidence to explore and bring those skills for the world to enjoy!
  • You will leave every session feeling heard, acknowledged, understood, calm, hopeful & more resourced.


My coaching mission is to help you come out of isolation and into the light! Today's world can be a very lonely place at times and I make sure that my warm human touch can help you feel connected to yourself and others again.



Your trust means the world to me so my coaching values are based on confidentiality, non-judgemental respect of personal values and choices. My personal treasured values are warmth, vulnerability, authenticity and ability to have fun!



When we embark on this journey, you will meet a coach with a style that's highly caring, warm & supportive, yet authentic, and action-focused.

Just for You

Just for you

My method is always 100% tailored to your needs. Seeing you get the best outcomes and the life you want is my greatest reward. It's why I love what I do, everyday.

Corporate Coaching

  • I provide Corporations with an external coaching resource that helps foster Inspiring, Authentic & Vulnerable type of Leadership.
  • I can help you fulfill your job and career goals in a way that classic technical-based training alone struggles to deliver.
  • I help create a deeper sense of purpose and connection to the company and team members. I believe that only through positive connections can we enjoy going to work, everyday.
Purpose and Connection

Purpose & Connection

Fostering deep sense of purpose & connection
95% of job dissatisfaction is linked to a lack of purpose and connection. Restoring humanity & meaning in the workplace is my number 1 mission.

Creativity and fresh thinking skills
Learning how to open up options, prioritise, reduce work-related stress and manage work/life balance enables individuals to think clearly and with focus.

Research shows that the best creativity is generated through teamwork. Helping to manage conflict and value the ideas and perspectives of others is key to my coaching ethos.

A new vision of Leadership

A new vision of Leadership

Change management & agility
Coaching as an opportunity to explore feelings towards change and find the resources needed to confidently step out of your comfort zone.
Learn to deal with failure and adopt resilient habits in a safe & highly supportive coaching environment.

Authentic Leadership
Coaching to help connect with people in an authentic, vulnerable and approachable style.

Individual career management and development plan

Individual career management & development plan

Drive focus and passion in the workplace
Help team members identify a development plan centered around their own personal vision, values and goals.

Succeed in new career paths
Support career transitions, potentially outside the existing division.

Foster high talent
Coaching is not just about fixing problems in the workplace. It's a great tool to foster and accelerate progress of those with high potential and keep them striving in their career.

Outplacement Agencies

I have successfully transitioned from a marketing to a coaching career and know what it takes to make it a fulfilling choice.

I have helped many people move from corporate jobs to similar positions elsewhere.

I have helped just as many people change career completely and live a life in line with their dreams, values and deep aspirations.

My unique gift is my ability to marvel at one's unique talents and help shed some light on what could be possible with a caring human touch.


"I came to the coaching with Marlene in a very difficult and confusing time in my life. through the sessions with her I managed to focus on the important things and see the bigger picture.

It is not an easy process, to look into your life and make changes in them, but Marlene with great sensitivity and step by step helped me move forward and what I find very helpful is the feeling she cares and keep in touch, and I know the door is always open to me in case I go through another rough patch or just need more encouragement. Thank you Marlene."

Naama Kolnik
Artist & ceramic teacher

"Grâce à son écoute, son empathie & ses compétences en communication, Marlène m'a permis de voir des opportunités là où je voyais des obstacles. Marlène m'a permis de me réaliser, en me fixant des objectifs clairs et précis, tenant compte - après analyses - de mes propres valeurs et atouts.

Jeanine Lacroix
Interior Design Specialist

"I was very skeptical about working with a career coach, however Marlene totally changed my mind.

She allowed me to open my mind, to look into myself and enabled me to truly understand what my goals are - in both a professional and personal capacity. My way forward has been made all the clearer by working with her and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her."

Zoe Bailey
Senior Project Manager - Nestle

"I worked with Marlene when I was going through an important career transition in 2012 and I found her coaching decisive in helping me find the resources I needed to face the necessary change and we worked on a clear plan of action which gave me the confidence to start this new chapter in my career. In many ways I feel I could not have done it without her and I recommend Marlene to anyone who is going through a career or life transition."

Eric Bozzetto
Fund Manager - SPGP

Marlene is a trusted partner who helps you find your own strengths and voice unknown to you. She is an empathetic listener, sharp analyst and a most supportive cheerleader with a big heart. Your deepest desire and fear shared with her become nourishment for perpetual growth".

Chizuko Muranaka Broinowski
Managing Director - Integral Media

"Marlene was extremely helpful to me and helped me find some solutions to my career by looking at myself in a way Ive not considered before. As a result I changed career direction with confidence in a way I didn't think possible".

Claire Popham-Forster
Academic Administration Manager & Quality Assurance Manager - MSB

"I highly recommend Marlene Rossi who I have worked with as my personal coach for the last 6 months. Marlene is a great coach as she has the perfect mix of professional skills and personal strengths: From a professional stand point, Marlene is graduated from a well renowned coaching school. For me it was a key element to consider when I had to pick my coach. On the personal level, she has very strong interpersonal skills enabling her to create contact very quickly and in a soft manner. Marlene has experience across different countries which makes her very at ease dealing with people from different cultures & background. Marlene has also very strong active listening skills combined with the ability of understanding complex situations - this makes her excelling in understanding contexts, identifying potential issues and helping you find solutions".

Emmanuelle Leroux
European Marketing Manager - Nestle Purina PetCare

"J'ai rencontré Marlène alors que je traversais une période difficile dans ma vie de "maman - femme - épouse". Après quelques séances d'accompagnement, Marlène m'a aidée à identifier les noeuds - sources de tension - et m'a guidée dans la résolution de ces dernières. Je garde un souvenir fort et extrêmement positif de nos rencontres. Marlène à su m'ouvrir les yeux sur "ma réalité" et m'a redonné confiance dans ma capacité à prendre les bonnes décisions... Jamais intrusive ni directive, l'approche de Marlène est bienveillante, emphatique mais sans complaisance. Elle m'a remise en selle et redonné la visibilité pour aller de l'avant!"

Amelie Le Berrigaud
Marketing Manager

"I use Marlene's feedback & coaching expertise on regular basis, mostly for my professional life. Everytime I feel overwheelmed, lost or angry she manages to turn it around and help me envision things with more neutrality & clarity. I always feel more empowered, sharp and calm after our coaching session. She is a great helper, also because providing concrete action steps".
