The adventure of esTalento started in 2010. After having an active professional life, Marta with a more focused experience in consulting and Patricia with a career in the world of human resources management, decided to give a turn in their career and with a common concern for the development of people. They met in a CTI program to accredit themselves as coaches. From this union emerged esTalento, where we put our passion into practice and commit ourselves to our clients in supporting them to achieve their goals.
