New World Consulting facilitators are well-versed in facilitating, coaching and collaborating with diverse groups of people, organizations, companies and communities. Being fully bilingual, they go beyond presenting Spanish – they adapt to the particular cultures they find themselves working in. Each of the trainers has a thorough grounding in the content of each course but, more importantly, has committed to using the skills in his or her own life.

Carlos Acevedo [in memoria]

As family, we are sad to say that Carlos, a Founding Partner, passed away in January 2019. He was devoted to having companies realize tangible results by intervening in where people stand and how work gets done. He focused on systemic change processes, where large scale shifts make it possible for people think differently, therefore generating the conversations which result in effective actions and projected results. He was committed to people living in dignity and harmony while bringing their best selves forward. Carlos graduated from MIT, with a Bachelor of Science, Mechanical Engineering.

His wisdom and loving heart will be greatly missed.
