Gerardo Segat
Coach, Trainer, Advisor

I inspire change, both in personal and professional lives.

I bring out your inner positivity and strengths through Life Coaching, assist you in managing and overcoming your personal obstacles with Soul Training and help you excel in your career with Shadow Coaching. My approach is personalized and tailored to each individual: I work alongside you, lend support and create a constructive partnership with my unconventional style. The focus is on you, not on me as your coach; I inspire you to find your own solutions, rather than dispensing advice. My guiding priciples are care and sensitivity: they can move mountains. Along with empathy, emotional intelligence, attention to detail, understanding, trust, discretion.

After graduating with full marks in Business Administration from Bocconi University in Milan, including a year at the HEC (Ecole des Hautes Etudes Commerciales) in Paris pursuing specialized studies in International Legal and Tax Strategy, I moved to London in 1994 to begin work for the Chiltern Group, a leading company in international tax consulting, part of the UBS group. In 1996, at the age of 26, I joined the Board of Directors with full responsibilities for the Italian, French and Spanish markets. In 2000 I earned my Master of Laws (LLM) degree with honors at the London School of Economics, with a thesis published in the journal European Taxation.

In 2000, wanting an entrepreneurial experience, I founded the T&F Group, of which I subsequently became Chairman. T&F is a “multi-family office” with its main headquarters in London, a dozen remote offices in various parts of the world and over 300 employees, leaders on an international scale offering consulting services in tax, legal, accounting, administrative and financial matters to private clients. During my career at T&F, I was primarily occupied with supervision of the administrative and financial functions of the group, the opening of offices in Dubai (DIFC), Doha (QFC) and Lugano, the start of the group’s operations in the field of wealth management, and the consulting, management and development of our clientele. I make particular mention of my successful collaboration in 2015 with the Thai Prime Group in their negotiations to acquire a minority share of AC Milan football club.

I earned my Swiss license as a Trust Professional in 2007, have published articles in various specialized industry journals, have presented at numerous international conferences and been a Guest Lecturer in the International Taxation LLM course at the London School of Economics. In 2013 I became a member of the YPO – Young President’s Organization and, in 2017, joined the Change Makers Club, a select group of YPO speakers working to inspire personal and professional change on a worldwide level. In 2018 I became a naturalized Swiss citizen.

In 2016, seeking a new challenge in my professional life, I ended my time with T&F. I wanted to find a job perfectly tailored for me in terms of content, schedule and process, aligned with my values, that would fully utilize my personal and professional skills and include a strong human element. Today therefore, as an independent professional, I have taken on the role of personal advisor to private clients on an international scale, to whom I offer my services as a Life Coach, Soul Trainer and Business Advisor.

My clientele is composed primarily of private individuals based in Europe. They are public figures and notable personalities, entrepreneurs, businessmen, directors, professional sports teams, athletes, members of the entertainment industry, and other high-net-worth individuals. They are facing complex issues, confronting a change, a crisis or conflict in their life or work, or dealing with the particular delicate aspects of their roles and responsibilities. Or sparked by personal growth and excellence, a need or a desire to rethink, rediscover themselves, and be reborn. My mission is to improve and to make their personal and professional lives more successful, harmonious and peaceful through an individual journey to find their authentic calling, identity and values, as well as the actions and behaviors that can maximize their capacities and awareness in pursuit of their goals.

I have spent half of my life with OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), an anxiety mental disorder, widespread but hidden. My own personal “monster”. Today, it is my greatest luck and strength, personally and professionally. I have learned how the mind works, how to control and take care of it, and how to manage, confront and defeat a personal “monster”.
