Nola’s passion for peace, calmness and compassion in every context; her unwavering commitment to quality client service and achievement of outcomes; her international, multi award-winning literary works; our ever-growing team of professional and talented consultants; and a global network of affiliates and associates, form the solid foundation stones for our unique and strong international consultancy.

Serenidad Consulting and its broader global corporate structure have been designed to be robust and enduring. Every word that we speak, every action and inaction, sets us and our clients on a path to the future. We are committed to delivering only the best and, by so doing, helping others to realize their greatest potential.
