I am the Managing Director of Veracity Europe based in Dublin, Ireland.  I have extensive experience in executive coaching and facilitation, cross-cultural management, leadership, change and behaviour.

I have spent the last 17 years delivering projects across the public and private sectors in Ireland, the UK and across Europe, helping to develop core values, culture and leadership to improve performance.  These projects have involved large-scale assessment programmes for a financial services organisation, senior partner development for a global professional services firm across Central and Eastern Europe/ CIS, down to one-to-one executive coaching of a large FMCG company for senior managers and directors across Europe.

I started my career and professional experience in quality assurance and training and development in the logistics industry in the USA, and several years' experience managing development and learning for an international development organisation in Dublin.  My background is based in translation for both French and Spanish, and I have delivered behaviour and leadership programmes and facilitated workshops across Europe and North America.

 Agnes Perrone


French, grown up in Germany, married to an Italian, I feel… European! A "nomadic" life and career leads to frequent and sometimes tough challenges, so that I now have a high awareness of my priorities, strengths and limits, and I am able to build again and again the conditions for a balanced life.

After studying philosophy and political sciences, I first was a consultant for an international company based in Paris. 2008 I started my training as a coach in Rome: since then, I coach people privately and in organisations, possibly combining individual and team/group coaching.

My main beliefs are that everyone is gifted, has a potential to develop and a personality to fulfil, through inevitable life transitions and challenges; and that building a balance between work, family life and personal interests is fundamental. As a coach, I combine and integrate different approaches and tool: I like being both rigorous & flexible, benevolent & challenging, deep & pragmatic. I am attracted by the alliance of business and research. I consider each person as unique in all its dimensions, "mind, heart and belly", helping my coachees to find out the best interconnections between these dimensions to achieve their individual and collective goals… and beyond.
