How I work? Hear it from the clients

 

"Freerk coached me when I was in transition between two big academic jobs (and two countries). He enabled me to think clearly about my priorities, my strengths and skills, my goals for the new job and the right ways of leaving a current job behind. It made the step a lot less daunting and quite enjoyable, actually. I am very happy in my new position in London and I am still grateful for the professional support that Freerk provided me with. He knows academia and he knows what it is like to be in a leadership position in an internationale oriented, complicated organization such as a university. I was valuable that he understood the context I am operating in. I can highly recommend Freerk."

“Freerk is an excellent consultant. He advised us in a change management assignment and realised co-creation with a train-the-trainer approach. I would characterise Freerk as committed, flexible and creative. It is a pleasure to work with him.”

Marcel Suijkens, HR manager, Onze Lieve Vrouwe Gasthuis (hospital)

“I got to know Freerk as a passionate consultant. He kept the values and business environment of the client in view while adding new insights from his own sound knowledge and experience. Freerk is a great listener and connects really well with the client and people he works with. Freerk is a reliable partner, result-driven, consistent, stimulates critical decision-making and knows how to get people to go along in his approach. Freerk has a creative and clear method of working towards results, in which he sets people the challenge of getting moving together.”

Mirella Bouweriks, Director HR, Sodexo Nederland BV

“Freerk is one of those consultants who is capable of tackling the most difficult topics with a friendly laugh in a good atmosphere, and what’s more, he can get things moving and achieve results. Although he is always involved in teaching others, he has never stopped learning himself and while he problematicises and tackles the effectiveness of groups, he is a catalytic factor in that process himself.”

Lex de Boer, Director SEV

“Freerk and I collaborated on various change projects, varying from improving the cooperation in management teams to improve the business results, to implementing new approaches in the production and development of a vision and mission. He is the living example of a management consultant in full control of his profession.”

Bart Kaiser, Director HR, Elementis Specialties

“As an actor I have worked with Freerk on several change and management pathways, in which his role was trainer or consultant. Not only is Freerk able to analyse complex business processes extremely well, he can also communicate about them clearly. He dares to confront people and does that with humour and sympathy. When you work with Freerk, you get the feeling: everything will work out, Freerk has it under control.
