“Throughout my time in Australia, I had been working on my career in areas that I was good at, not what I was interested in. Working with Gaj on how to best demonstrate my leadership skills and to sell myself, I was able to get promoted within my top tier consulting firm to higher levels to support the Partners on highly strategic projects across the region. ”


Management Consulting

“I was lost in my career and frustrated with where I was in my life. I was referred onto Kompass to receive career coaching and over the next 2 months, I managed to build a process for me to find that next role. It helped me to break my old patterns and unhealthy thoughts. I now have the tools to use for the rest of my life!”


Mechanical Engineer

“Kompass helped me to get to the job offer stage! I was getting to interviews and just not able to move forward to the acceptance stage. I got to practice my interviews in a safe environment with the help of an interview guide and the feedback given to me was so helpful in modifying my responses. Thank you Kompass!”


Human Resources

“INSEAD Career Development for Working Professionals has partnered up with Kompass Consultancy for over 5 years, to deliver top quality career coaching for the executive participants of INSEAD degree programmes. Both Gaj and Leila had offered exceptional one to one coaching services to executives who transition in their careers, aim for internal acceleration or wish to create their own ventures. Kompass has also designed tailored trainings for our executive participants, which helped in developing their skills, preparing them for the global markets and helping them deal with the uncertainties of international job search. As trusted partners to our office, they have always delivered top quality content and services, with a speed and efficiency, friendliness and professionalism. Both our executive students and our staff at INSEAD CDWP, value and love working with Kompass!””
