Welcome to Episode 22 of Building My Legacy!

In this episode, Nicole Heimann shares her story—going from a thriving career in Belgium, moving to Switzerland as a new mother, and finding her passion as a business consultant and coach.  She has recently completed her work as the biographer for the upcoming documentary on Marshall Goldsmith’s life.  Her quiet authenticity, combined with her strong presence, allows her to influence powerful leaders while also causing them to pause and reflect on how they are leading. 

So, if you want to know:

  • How Nicole navigated the challenges of developing a career in a country foreign to her

In this Podcast we will discuss:
