Behind SIAM Story

Thanks for showing your interest in finding out more about creators behind Sail In A Moment story.

My name is Morana Smolcic and my professional path went from legal to various range of industries and ended up in coaching, which is my fondest passion. Master of Laws from the Faculty of Law, University of Zagreb, Croatia, bar and notary certification together with 15+ years of practice in advocacy, notary and corporate sector equipped me with holistic approach to business and human relations. For more than a decade I’ve worked closely to HR managers, sales and finance executives in various industries, from trade (Atlantic Grupa), finance (Volksbank, Raiffeisen Bank), insurance (Allianz), book publishing industry (Il Gruppo Giunti), both in leadership roles and as an individual contributor.

Later, my curiously and socially oriented personality led me to coaching where I obtained certification in Organisational and Team coaching (by Institute of Executive Coaching and Leadership, Sydney, Australia), Law of attraction, and accreditation by Int’l Coach Federation as an Associate Certified Coach (ACC). Additionally, 6 years of life abroad across Asia and Europe alongside another passion – sailing, left significant marks on my coaching style which is dynamic, playful and explorative.

Why have I created Sail In A Moment (SIAM) Approach?

As a sequel of my professional and personal development, S.I.A.M.’s creation was driven by my strong desire to help professionals develop high tolerance to stress and increase their presence, imagination and creativity in today´s overly busy (and very often too serious) world. In other words, to help them perceive themselves, and the world around them through new lenses, maintain presence, evoke awareness and grow both professionally and personally. 

During 2 years living in China, I had the chance to be a co-founder of creative workshops – Life Coaching Rehearsals – that aimed to help expats and locals in expressing their creative side through elements of SIAM and theater techniques. I had the pleasure of working with professionals from different industries, including KEDGE BUSINESS SCHOOL – MBA Program at Jiao Tong University, Shanghai, educators (YCIS International School Shanghai), creatives, finance coachpreneuers, senior executives from Shanghai, Singapore, Australia, Czech Republic, Egypt and Italy, to name a few.

I am currently based in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, with my husband and two children – wonderful creative minds who challenge my brain waves all the time. 🙂
My virtual presence around the globe via Zoom/Skype makes my portable office always available.

I´m happy to invite you to sail out toward journey of presence and creativity with us!!
