We’re unleashing human potential

Salt Consulting & Communications is a Geneva-area global consulting, communications, and coaching services provider co-founded by Denise Nickerson & Michelle Guiliano. We work with talented professionals who do good in the world and who create or further access to opportunities for others. Our clients’ successes create waves of positive impact.

Our clients are looking for edge, resources, new strategies, and tools to further skills that help with both achievement and fulfillment in their work and lives. If you’ve landed here, chances are that you have been referred by a talented professional or experienced our team delivering a workshop. Perhaps you feel curious, motivated, or inspired to take a new action in your life.

Our clients are just like you! They’re curious, kind, and looking for ways to grow and develop – to think new thoughts, to find creative solutions, to improve their habits, and to show up with enthusiasm for themselves and those they love.

Are you seeking emotional mastery, strong mental health, a life that includes deep rest, and more joy?
You will be better poised, positioned, and prepared to show up for your goals and your legacy with strategies you can learn and practice through the coaching process.

We create custom programs for groups, teams, and organizations to facilitate important conversations, support your objectives, and strengthen relationships. We promote inclusion and curiosity across all of our coaching, training, facilitation, and talks.

Our Story

Salt’s co-founders grew up in the USA. Michelle lived in Zurich and Denise in Paris before moving with their families to the Geneva area. They had each attended workshops given by the other before deciding to work together in 2015.

Their first three group coaching sessions were diverse: a startup that needed funding (and soon after obtained it), a global service NGO HQ team with over 1 million global constituents, and a medium-sized medical training company.

They knew they had shared values, a shared vision for a better world, and different coaching styles. Both had previous experience evaluating many diverse, bright people under pressure – Michelle in executive search and Denise in university admissions. Michelle had been a high-level athlete and sports coach, and Denise had education expertise and also had experience in the art world.

Their diverse perspectives help them to understand clients’ needs, challenges, hopes, and dreams.
