About Us

Inova Consultancy Ltd aims to improve lives by supporting individuals to fulfill their potential in work or business.

Inova has been running since 2001 and provides consultancy services in the area of entrepreneurship and career development, with a focus on diversity and equal opportunities. In particular, our work has focused on supporting those who are under-represented or who face particular challenges to fulfill their potential in a professional setting. For example, we have worked extensively with women in non-traditional fields such as Science, Technology, Engineering & Maths (STEM) and our director, Marina Larios, is president of WiTEC, the European Association of Women in SET.

We also work with a wider target group and have provided training programmes funded by the European Commission, to support others to become entrepreneurs or build careers following challenging times. This includes NEET young people, those aged 50+ and women who have been victims of violence, trafficking, homelessness or abuse, to name a few.

Our programmes use coaching and mentoring to develop the ‘soft skills’ needed to be successful in business. We provide one to one coaching, workshops and Enterprise/Career/Mentoring Circles™ – Our Circles are a series of products developed by Inova which combine mentoring, coaching and action learning to support individuals to reflect on and develop either a new or existing business, change or progress in their career or consider their personal life goals. This methodology was recognised by Aberdeen University business academics as a successful programme for the development of entrepreneurial skills.

Inova Consultancy’s subsidiary in Mexico, ‘Inova Education’, has been providing services to British universities since 1996, to find out more about this visit www.inovaeducation.com
