About us

We believe in collaboration to shape the future

Our vision is to help people navigate the future of work, where entrepreneurship and human talent are at the heart. Our ambition is simple: enable this powerful transformation by equipping persons and teams with the tools to use the power of collaboration. We support the creation of teams that realise their ideas driven by a common purpose while contributing to the United Nations’ Sustainable Developments Goals (SDGs). While all SDGs have an important impact, our own purpose is linked to:

We promote inclusive and sustainable economic growth, full and productive employment and decent work for all. We do this by helping people to create a more fulfilling career and to realise their entrepreneurial ideas.

We equip individuals and teams with simple self-awareness tools to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning and training-on the-field opportunities for all.

We contribute to reducing inequality within and among countries by offering our services at democratic prices, affordable by everyone. Our services help many less fortunate people to realise their potential talents and ideas.

We believe in cooperation

We are working together with our partners to realise our purpose and pursue our common goals. Each of our partners is a player in the field of empowering persons and teams to realise their potential ideas and talents. Check them out by clicking on their logo.

We believe that our team turns diversity into reality

Our team has a rich variety of backgrounds in terms of culture and education. We have different professional paths and cumulate over 100 years of diverse work experience. Our focus today is Europe, but tomorrow…

Linda van Andel

(team builder)

I have a passion for connecting ideas and people. This mix of interests has fostered my curiosity for the new, for the different, for the unusual. My European background has given me the wings to explore many different jobs in different places. This way I now have a broad base of experience and skills, some very business, but mostly related to the behaviour of people in teams.

Nicole De Windt

(engagement talent)

I am a walking example of a European citizen and promoter of European values. This has been the red thread of my private and professional path. I lived in several countries and worked for international and European organisations. With connecting talents, I found the additional dimension for realizing my values and potential to connect the dots and thrive. I’m passionate about innovative projects and to help people realise their ideas I strongly believe that curiosity, openness to learn, respect and integration of diverse talents are the foundation for an inclusive and sustainable development.

Guiding people to become self aware and grow their Talent is exactly what makes me happy.

I love seeing people grow and develop new Talents they didn’t know they had, especially when they access new opportunities as a result.
