The Big House Client Feedback:


“The coaching through the Big House project I’ve received from Fil has been invaluable with me uncovering my mission as an artist and as a creative. I came into coaching with a business plan and objective and have ended up with something much much more, more authentic and directly aligned to my passion and ultimately my heart. I can’t recommend NBV, Big House and especially Fil enough, it’s been a wonderful experience.”

“Fil is an intuitive, experienced and well informed coach. Her approach allows me to navigate my own path in a clear and inspiring manner. Working with her also enables me to feel connected to the wider world of contemporary arts and business.”

“The advice and support that we have received during our coaching sessions has been invaluable. Filomena’s expertise and knowledge has helped us to make informed decisions and enabled us to access information​ and contacts which we would not have been aware of. The guidance and assistance that she provides is most reassuring and very much appreciated.”

“The NBV Big House coaching services have been invaluable to me. My meetings with Filomena Rodriguez have provided a framework to look at my business from overall aims to the finer practical details in a very creative and informal way. It has been amazing that I have been given the opportunity to chat to Filomena due to her experience and I hope that the programme grows and grows!”
