Client Testimonials

Hristo Borisov Co-Founder CEO PayHawk

Co-founder, CEO, PayHawk

Hristo Borisov

"Building a fast-growing business requires a lot of mental strength, confidence and resilience. It’s often that we are lost in the details that we might fail to see the big picture and discover new and better ways to approach things. I have worked with multiple coaches over the years including Mochary Method and others, but working with Veselka as a
professional coach has been one of the most delightful and helpful experience in my career.

Apart from being a great listener, she has helped me always put things in context, zoom in and out of problems together to consider alternative ways,
and help me prioritize and structure my thinking to arrive at the conclusion myself.

We have had multiple cases at Payhawk where we have hired Veselka for managers that needed some support, and the experience has consistently been overly positive and career-changing for some of the them. I highly recommend her services, and would be happy to provide a reference call to any founder or executive that is considering working with Veselka."

"I have known Veselka for all my professional life and career. We have been through many different learning and development projects where she took the challenge to step into the unknown and pave the way for something new and transformational. She has always been supportive but also challenging the mindset and the status-quo.
She is admirable in her modest behavior, although she is shining with ideas and thought-provoking concept models. Veselka is great in both training and coaching but for me she is a powerful mind and an inspirational partner."

"I was lucky to have Ves as my first manager and we worked closely for the first few years of my career. She has been one of the most instrumental individuals that shaped my work, instilling a relentless desire for personal development and achievement of higher and higher standards and professionalism. While our paths separated, over the last few years, Vesselka has become my go-to person when I need to get to the core of an issue. She has the most perceptive way of asking questions and getting straight to the point delivered in a kind yet firm manner. I love how she gets me to focus on what is critical and does not allow me to go to unnecessary details. Ves is by far one of the best coaches I've worked with."

Daniela Deniz about Veselka

L&D Lead, Coach

Daniela Nazim

"I met Vesselka for the first time in 2009 when I had a chance to learn from an amazing team of business trainers that looked up on her as their mentor. She was among the first professionals to introduce coaching in Bulgaria so in 2019 when I decided to pursue a coaching certificate I had no doubt that I will sign up with Aligned Action International. At this stage I had basic understanding of coaching but what I knew is that a program run by her will be a stretch combined with practical implementation due to her business acumen and experience as an enterpreneur and people manager. Growing my own coaching practice I am often asked for recommendations for a remarkable business coach or coaching certification and Vesselka is the name that comes to mind first."

"I had the pleasure to meet Ves as my coaching teacher and I am very happy for this turn of events in my journey. As a mentor-coach and a coach, I appreciate very much Ves for her warmth, structured and curious approach, for her flexibility. During our sessions in the modules when I had the chance to practice with Ves as my coach, I recognized the passion for personal growth and the smooth way in which she creates the safe space for the Client to observe and gain deeper understanding about themselves. As a mentor-coach I discovered in her both the teacher and the coach, with high standards and again warm rigor towards what coaching is and how it can be used, turning her in one of my models for my coaching practice and the way I present coaching further. Thank you Ves!"
