Chief Joy Officer
Meet Dana Svoboda
Personal and Business Coach
Welcome! I'm Dana (she/her), Czech-South African, based in London.
I help individuals connect with their joy and personal power and help organisations to thrive through fostering a great team culture.
As a Personal and Business Coach, I’ve worked with thousands of people in the last 12 years, coaching them to improved wellbeing, and greater personal and business success. I've been with Makers, Europe's leading coding bootcamp, since 2014 (Chief Joy Officer and Chair of the People Council).
In everything I've encountered in my personal life and in my experience as a coach, I've observed a few fundamentals of life and keys to enduring joy - the core of which is emotional intelligence (EQ).
EQ is increasingly recognised as more important than IQ when it comes to creating individual and organisational success. It's my mission to facilitate joy and wholeness in the workplace and beyond.
As we grow in awareness we create the conditions for a flourishing, joyful life.

"Dana isn’t about pep-talks, or sugar-coating – she is practical and tells things as she sees them. She also has an incredible ability to see right inside a person. I find her insight very moving and powerful."
