with like-minded people
personally and professionally
Who we are
"Be the change that you wish to see in the world." Mahatma Gandhi.
Gandhi was not a member of the Coaching Club, but these words more than ever capture the spirit of what we believe. Through casting our net (as wide as we can!) and drawing together a community of like-minded individuals from a range of diverse backgrounds and regions of the world, we are now aspiring to realise this in Munich. OpenDays Coaching Club is a non-profit community focused on personal development. We believe that every person can live a creative, meaningful and fulfilling life.
Not next week after we have done the housework and finished the grocery shopping or next month when our project at work is completed, but today. We want to begin sharing our ideas through a series of regular workshops led by qualified, experienced coaches. There will be discussion too, where we value your contribution hugely. And picnics! Through such events you can discover your potential, connect with like-minded people and grow individually and professionally in a warm, trusting, inspiring atmosphere.
We believe our modern materialist society must fundamentally rethink its approach, redefine its purpose and reappraise its values if we, as the individuals who comprise it, are to live authentically by becoming OUR BEST SELVES and one by one effect real change.
We would love you to join us.
I am a certified (ICF Accredited) Personal Development and Corporate Executive coach, business trainer and founder of the OpenDays Coaching Club.
After 15 years of international experience in Human Resources management and People Development, I now focus on helping people to believe in themselves, so that they can live purposeful, values-driven, fulfilling lives. (www.elenamarsh-coaching.com)
When not coaching or running workshops I charge my batteries in the mountains hiking, taking photographs and practicing yoga.

I am a certified (ICF Accredited) coach, trainer and the secretary of OpenDays Coaching Club.
After 10 years of international career in online marketing and project management, I found my calling in coaching and have been accompanying wonderful people through their journeys by helping them to gain clarity, momentum and motivation for action.
If I get to have some free time, I love it spending with new and old friends, walking around in the city, reading, writing, watching movies and series.
I am an R&D scientist who likes to join innovative projects which improve our lives and society. Speaking different languages, I am fortunate to work in an international environment.
I believe that the more I know myself, the more I can learn and change for the better. Exchanging experiences with others is essential to self-improvement.
I love the sea, Mediterranean food and having dinner with friends.
As a marketing professional I am passionate about marketing, communications and brands. I studied International Business and graduated as Diplombetriebswirtin (FH) and Bachelor of Arts in European Business. My role in the Club comprises the topics marketing and communication as well as social media and event management.

I love travelling, communication with people from all over the world and spending time dreaming at beautiful beaches watching the ocean.
I am an engineering student specialized in mathematical modeling with the aim of understanding the complexity and beauty of natural phenomena. This passion for discovering new things, challenging concepts and beliefs and my commitment to continuous learning naturally lead me to social sciences, psychology and personal development.
My technical background and interests in website management allow me to bring my support to the Coaching Club in this area.
I owe a lot of my character to judo, sport I have practiced almost my whole life and taught me self-discipline, confidence and respect. Open-minded, I love traveling and discovering people as well as experiences. I believe life is meant to be lived in its fullest aspects and self improvement is thus a key factor to reach every new level of Your UNIQUE Life.
I am a volunteer for non-profit organizations in Munich. Meaningful contribution coupled with personal and professional growth are my continuous pursuits.

“I took part in two of the seminars organized by the 'OpenDays' Coaching Club.
I enjoyed the organization and the opportunity to collect different points of view – from the participants and from the coaches.
I believe also leading such seminars with a focus on real life examples is very valuable and I could see that in the workshops as well.
Thanks for the positive attitude and the good balance between exercises and theory.”

"I was a bit sceptical when I attended my first workshop. I usually find personal development books and workshops boring and didactic so my expectation was not high when my wife dragged me to the workshop. I was positively surprised! The workshop content was very interesting and engaging, Elena was great at keeping our attention high all the time, I had a lot of fun and meaningful moments exchanging with other participants. I learned and reflected a lot. I was so satisfied that I signed up for the coming workshop right away, and then another one and another one. I am looking forward to attending the new ones."

“I would like to express my great satisfaction by the Coaching workshops which Elena develops personally. Being also a coach, I can say that in each workshop I have attended so far I always learned new techniques which give me a new perspective/solution to my day-to-day life.
I really enjoy Elena´s dynamic way of explaining the different subjects. The result is that she creates a fantastic atmosphere among attendees.
I am looking forward to continuing to join Elena's coaching workshops and to continuing to evolve personally.”
