I had a great experience with Dirk, I learned a lot, I particularly appreciated the attitude, positive, but also very pragmatic, I learned how to adapt to reality, even better how to understand reality often covered by our wish, the analysis of the reality is always the first need, but it is not always easy to perform it without deviations, and finally how to pragmatically influence the current reallity.Once again a great experience, and excellent learning opportunity, many thanks Dirk.

François-Xavier Hennuy, Head of Sales Force Effectiveness Europe chez CooperVision May 14, 2013, François-Xavier worked with Dirk but at different companies

Dirk is coaching me more or less closely since 2000. What I can say is that Dirk is a real coach and a real humanist (meaning he believes in human and talent). A coaching session with Dirk is always tough an energizing at the same time. Facing reality is not alwayseasy but makes you move and go to action.Coaching as a second nature coupled with a broad and successful experience are making Dirk a trustful expert inthe field of Human Performance. I would highly recommend Dirk as Executive Coach !

Frederik De SteurRegional Business Leader at Roche / EMBA @ VLERICKNovember 26, 2013, Frederik worked with Dirk but at different companies

Graag wens ik jou nog eens te bedanken voor de tijd die je vrijmaakte om met mij te praten. Ondanks je zeer drukke agenda apprecieer ik het enorm dat je dit voor mij hebt willen doen. Het is niet altijd evident en soms geraak je er alleen niet altijd uit, je blijft met jezelde rugzakje zitten en je denken komt altijd op hetzelfde uit.

Het was zeer interessant en leerrijk praten met jou, omdat ik het echt wel nodig had. Ik had het nodig om met bepaade zaken af te rekenen en om me een duidelijk doel te stellen. Er zat en zit nog altijd veel wind in de zeilen , maar mijn doel , mijn bestemming is duidelijk geworden. Iets waar ik altijd wel aan dacht of van droomde, maar nu ook echt durf uitspreken en echt durf als doel stellen. Ik ben echt superblij Dirk dat ik jou heb leren kennen en voor alles wat ik totnutoe al van je heb geleerd. Nogmaals dank voor je coaching en weet zeker dat ik er de volle 300% zal voor gaan.
