Catarina Holstein believes that each and everyone of us is born with talents, our natural gifts that make us unique human beings and that point us to our life purpose. The more we explore and develop these talents, the more one understands the unlimitedness of our human potential.
Catarina has taken on the mission to empower people to be the best they can be and live happy and fulfilled lives, every day.
She does this through teaching, speaking, coaching, meditation and also through the MLA - Master in Life Adventures®, a model for personal development she created, that uses the world as classroom and that she is currently developing to become a talent empowerment platform. The MLA was first presented to the general public at TEDx ULisboa, on May 4th 2019.
After graduating in Business Administration and finishing her Master in Marketing at Católica Lisbon School of Business and Economics, she spent almost six years working at Unilever, managing different brands in Portugal, Europe and globally.
Feeling unfulfilled and driven by a desire to find her life purpose, she quit her job to travel the world whilst developing different competencies, and exploring her passions and talents, a personal development program which gave rise to the MLA and that has profoundly transformed her life for the better.
During her MLA, Catarina has gone through a series of experiences that equipped her with different competencies in communication, yoga and meditation. She completed a TV & Radio Host Course in Portugal, a Yoga Teacher Training in Thailand and a Tibetan Singing Bowls Sound Healing Teacher Training in India, among others. And she has taken on all these tools to reinvent herself professionally into a Talent Strategist.
Catarina is always eager to meet new people, learn and find ways to contribute to human development. Feel free to contact her! She speaks Portuguese (native language), English and Spanish.
