It was precisely Flix Ruiz who gave him the idea of ​​setting up a platform for coaching Y mentoring with leaders, something very widespread in the Anglo-Saxon world but that did not exist in Spain. “We saw that many people contacted entrepreneurs through Linkedin to express doubts or ask for advice and we thought that this could work. We obtained financing of 1.2 million especially to set up the entire technological part, which is very expensive.”

AGAG, THE ‘HOOK’

At first it was difficult for them to board the gurus on their platform until Alejandro Agag told them yes. Through friends and acquaintances of both, they managed to contact him and convince him to be one of the coach de Gurucall. “He loved the idea and was the first to jump into the water. We went to London to record him in the midst of a pandemic, I don’t even know how we managed it. Back and forth in the day…”. The Aznar’s son-in-law he was the first famous businessman recruited and gave credibility to the platform. “It was the ‘hook’ for others to join.” Then came other gurus such as Antonio Cataln, founder of the NH and AC hotels, Mario Conde, former president of Banesto, Jaime Bas, CEO of Auro, o Albert Rivera, the former president of Ciudadanos. And sports leaders like Amaya Valdemoro, Sergio Scariolo, David Meca or Gisela Pulido. One of the latest additions has been the bullfighter Cayetano Rivera, who teaches a master class on managing fear and pressure.

Contacting all these experts costs between 500 and 3,000 euros per hour, approximate figures because it depends a lot on each guru. “Each one sets their own rate, although we also offer the possibility for the user to make their own offer,” says Peral, although he clarifies that the majority usually donate the money. The sessions last 15 minutes, half an hour or an hour and the main clients are usually the companies. Before the call, a confidentiality agreement is signed by both parties.

In two months, some 30 sessions have been held with different gurus and Peral assures that they have a waiting list to be part of the list of experts. “Many people call us but we are selective. We are growing and our idea is in four or five years to be leaders in coaching in Spanish.” So far they have obtained another round of investment of 500,000 euros.
