I will always be grateful to the person that suggested I make contact with ‘The World We Work In’ when I first arrived in the Netherlands and was charged with developing a change programme in Compliance Risk Management.

From the first meeting with both Gert-Jan and Ingrid I could tell that we would make a winning team. They were very interested in not only the people development side of the project but also the business impact and benefits of the change. Their engagement and commitment in being a business partner with my team to ensure that not only the participants gain personal development but that the programme objectives and deliverables are met, for me is one of their key success factors.

I have worked with Gert-Jan and Ingrid in various development programs aimed at growing and supporting the compliance community worldwide. I have had to bring teams of people together across many countries and many cultures. I have called on the experience and knowledge of Gert-Jan and his team to support me on this. I have not been disappointed!

They are always open to new ideas and experiences and I like the way that they are willing to challenge me and my team on our thinking and provide open and honest feedback. They are also interested in the technical content of the programme, which makes it easier to build relationships with the team.

They go above and beyond what I have experienced before with change management facilitators by making regular contact with the participants after the programme to hear the successes, ensure that we have achieved the objectives agreed to and also to gain feedback and lessons learned.

A true trusted partner.
