PARTNER & Head of the coaching practice

Marianna Amy Crestani


Marianna is TCO International’s Partner & Head of Coaching Practice leading a team of over 50 executive coaches spread all over the world.


Daughter of a British mother and Italian father, she has direct experience of what it means – with ups and downs – to be culturally hybrid. Due to her very nature or even fate she soon started to develop a critical sense and awareness of how our cultural ambient helps to shape us and influence the way in which we resolve to do things and has transformed this into her job.


Marianna has been supporting the development of global agility skills for the past 10 years. With a background in systemic coaching and NLP, she is a PCC coach by The International Coach Federation and a CO-ACTIVE coach and has been trained up in the Uk. She is specialising in somatic coaching and neuroscience of change.


Marianna’s clients describe her as having ‘a genuine interest in them which is expressed by asking thoughtful and powerful questions, truly tailored to their personal development’.


Marianna has coached both High Potentials and Senior Talents from organisations like FCA BANK, Comau, CNHI, Snam, Luxottica, Coesia, Chiesi, Campari, L’Oreal, Rockwool. She has supported a number of professionals moving to Italy, US, China, Japan, Germany, UK, etc.

Marianna also works with Valore D focusing on the development of leadership skills for Young Talents and newly appointed managers but also with graduate students from Collegio Einaudi helping them enter the world of work with a stronger sense of purpose and direction. Taking advantage of the remote delivery, within the same day she can start coaching Management Board Members in Asia and end the day training Leadership Teams in the US on resilience.


Her clarity of thought and ability to shift  perspectives  is combined with a deep understanding of the complex challenges leaders and organisations are facing in today’s VUCA (Volatile, Uncertain, Complex, Ambiguous) world.

Marianna has developed TCO’s Global Players coaching process aimed at professionals moving across cultures and roles. The process is aimed at supporting the Global Players act more consciously as bridge builders, pioneers and global leaders.

She has also developed the ‘MOTIVACTION’ coaching path for leaders needing to function effectively in the ‘new normal. A key element in this process is building leadership resilience and emotional intelligence.


Marianna coaches and trains in both Italian and English.
