What do others think of us?
“I got to know Nick during a core values session. Nick brings coherence between the substantive program and active breaks.
He literally and figuratively sets the team in motion and knows how to convert resistance into involvement and pleasure in a short time. We recently worked together to create a fantastic active program for all of our executives. With the aim of translating our ambition, core values and vision for the future into team activities in a playful but very serious way.
The cohesion between the activities, the discussion with each other and the positive reactions afterwards about the team formation, the coming closer together and real attention for each other, have laid a wonderful foundation for a successful basis for our growth plan.”
Safe and Promising Growing Up at NJI
“From the Dutch Youth Institute I asked Nick to be a speaker for the national opening of the week of upbringing.
Due to his extensive knowledge of and work experience with children, parents and education professionals, he knows how to highlight (educational) issues from multiple sides. He ensures a lot of interaction and involvement and regularly puts his audience to work themselves.
In addition, he does not hesitate to make himself vulnerable by also sharing his own experiences as a parent and professional. In short, Nick is a strong speaker who knows how to touch his audience in the head and heart.”
“We always look forward to a training from Nick, who, thanks to his positive energy, humor and active attitude, knows how to quickly connect within the group, and ultimately win over the skeptics. The way he gives and builds up his training is in itself a practica example for working with people. Nick immerses himself in the organization and therefore knows how to respond well to the request for help that was put to him. His approach is refreshing and effective. We have gained new knowledge and insights and been provided the rights tools for our organization and working method.”

“We started an intensive process with Nick from the KNVB WorldCoaches program, in which he was able to complement the existing expertise in our organization from his own expertise.
He knows how to make contact quickly and to set something in motion. In our case, he was able to successfully help teachers develop their own skills and achieve the goals of our program even better.”
“We approached Nick to help improve our commercial team’s negotiating skills. Nick trained our group by creating awareness of our individual strengths and pitfalls and improved their observation skills. This enabled us to better read the requirements and personalities of our business partners. In a few very inspiring (and fun!) sessions he managed to adjust our individual behaviors in such manner that we noticeably optimized the outcome of our business meetings.”

“Dynamic, confrontational, knowledgeable, personal with a lot of humor, Nick coaches our talented students and teachers in excellence programs. Nick excels on the themes of personal leadership, communication and teamwork in a creative way. He fits in well with the learning styles and learning questions of participants in the training. With Nick, learning is in motion, it’s challenging and out of the comfort zone and at the same time safe.
