Business & Executive Coach
Rosa María Botrán joins Mars Venus Coaching as the type of person that has always looked for ways to help other people. One experience in particular taught her a great lesson: Be aware – you never know whose life you are going to touch. This had prompted her to acquire new programs and learn new techniques to assist other people in creating a better life. She has attended many personal development seminars, which have helped her improve her own life as well as those of others in a very positive way.
Rosa´s natural curiosity and drive to help people led her to become an NLP trainer. She utilized this to successfully coach sports people to make changes within themselves in order to improve their ‘game’ performance, and she’s trained teachers to assist their students in learning new methods to better learning skills.
Rosa brings to Mars Venus Coaching a degree in Marketing, two MBAs, and after more than 20 years of working successfully in the corporate world, Rosa felt the need to pursue her real passion – that of helping people lead better lives.
Becoming a Mars Venus Coach has given her the additional tools and skills to help others create the life they dream of and deserve by utilizing the latest coaching techniques to assist her clients in achieving their goals.
Aside from direct coaching, Rosa facilitates workshops and seminars to improve relationships, both personally and within the workplace.

Professional background combining Over 20 years in Operations, Training & Development, sales and marketing, and Sr. Management. I lived both corporate and franchising world.
The food and Hospitality industry is such a unique business, where I gained most of my experience, so many moving parts needed to be managed differently, separately, yet all at the same time. My passion for people contributed my success as a manager, and a leader. That is a main reason for my achievements. I came a cross so many people in the business internally and externally. I found my self developing key people to be the best at what they currently do, and others getting to the next level of excellence professionally and financially. I love this part I consider my self very lucky as I worked in USA and the Middle East. I understand what works in the western civilization, yet keeping the values and cultural differences in the Middle East in tact and still achieve future success.
I decided to take my knowledge, experience and the continuation of my passion for people a step above. I started a consulting business. Named it, TOGETHER, to help individuals and businesses develop systems, people, and meet their financial objectives. I worked with companies in the US, Jordan, UAE, and Saudi Arabia. As my path was crossed by Mars Venus International Coaching and Dr. John Grays principles, I knew right away that this the launching pad for my new adventure.
MVC is my guiding light to take people the next level of success to achieve the life style always dreamed of. Always remember the difference between a Dream and a Goal is a plan. I got a plan for you. Looking forward to meet with you.

Dr. Niru Kumar
Truly inspired by the research and insights of world famous Dr. John Gray (author of Men are from Mars and Women are from Venus) I brought the concept of Gender Intelligence Training to India 4 years back. Being a medical doctor, a psychologist and a Reiki teacher with over 25 years experience in clinical practice, I saw the intense need for this knowledge.
Initially I faced hesitation and reluctance to accept training in this arena. Patiently and convincingly I paved my way through to couple counselling and corporate training. Partnerships with leading organizations like Walmart, IBM and Coca Cola helped significantly. Being the only Mars Venus coach in India I had to manage all fronts single handed. Various innovations were required to bring about acceptance in the Indian context. Today I feel the excitement and thrill to be moving ahead in a powerful surge as the corporate world awakens to the concept of Gender Intelligence and encouraging Woman Leadership.
My medical background helps to explain the brain differences, the psychology background to uncover block, the spiritual background realizes the importance of balancing the yin and yang .The journey from being a medical professional to an Executive Coach has been fascinating.
