Ezgi Türkmen, who graduated from Koc University Economics, primarily built up her career on sales and marketing in both external and local markets of international companies like Colgate & Palmolive, Cadbury/Kraft and Coca-Cola within more than 16 years. Along the way, she changed her course to management and delivery of international leadership development programs in the tenth year of her corporate life, where she enriched the last 7 years of her career by becoming a certified executive coach and facilitator. While experiencing her own leadership journey in the corporate environment until the end of 2017, Ezgi worked with many different geographies like Turkey, Far East, South America, Europe, South Africa, Middle East, Central Asia and Pakistan.  Having lead teams of different dynamics such as direct-indirect and local-international, Ezgi designed and delivered many development programs to especially mid- and senior-level leaders. Doing this, she combined her experience actively achieved on the ‘field’ of more than ten years with aspects of leadership, communication and talent development.

Today, Ezgi is a leadership consultant, certified executive coach (PCC) and facilitator. Under leadership consultancy, she supports organizations in projects of change management, organizational development, leadership development, talent development, inclusion and communication with Coaching, Mentoring, VUCA Leadership, Diversity & Inclusion, Digital Leadership, Meaningful Conversations & Effective Communication, Systemic Thinking, Leadership & Change, Leader as Coach, Performance Coaching, Resilience and Leader’s Presence being among her areas of expertise. Under coaching and facilitation, she brings in her corporate experience of having worked together with executives, senior leaders, mid-level leaders, supervisors, specialists and shopfloor leaders to her sessions as an angle to support her clients in pursuing a 360-degree perspective to the system they work in and in understanding the value chain they are a part of. She also combines this with the practices she led during periods of change and contributes to enhancing communication-based on openness and trust. While coaching leaders and working privately with them on developing their coaching and mentoring skills, Ezgi embraces a strengths-based approach where she also integrates her experience in presence and mindfulness into energy management and resilience in leaders’ daily lives.

Ezgi joined Duman Consultancy as Senior Client Partner as of March 2020.  She also delivers Leadership and Communication Skills class in English Post-Graduate HRM Program at Istanbul Bilgi University.
