One final thing...

The Be.Serene Programme was developed by Benessere's founder Carina Martins Nakama, based on her 20-year successful track record as a leader in organisations.

After developing numerous in-house initiatives to effectively balance people, quality and profit results as a General Manager and Director, Carina started to envision a cost-effective solution, to impact more people and organisations.

She knew that to achieve positive, long lasting change, this new solution would have to take all the team on a transformative journey, to truly embed positive values and help develop more assertive and serene leaders. 

Carina believes that shifting behaviours and improving performance don't happen by chance or overnight - it's the result of consistent and focused effort, a continuous improvement mindset and a strategic plan.

Her remarkable breath of experience combined with an approachable leadership style and genuine willingness to help people and businesses thrive are at the heart of the services she offers through Benessere.
