Niels, the advisor

Since 2006, Niels has been strongly involved in transformational change initiatives both as a short-term and long-term advisor, in organizations in Europe and the Americas. He partners with a personal network of trusted colleagues, internationally, to deliver highly impactful, "light-touch" transformation advisory, and all the conceptual and methodological support for your organization to achieve sustainable superior competitiveness.


You may be part of a young, fast-growing organization of only 30 people. A maturing 300-person mid-sized firm. Or a 300.000-employee congloerate: The transformational approach Niels has been pioneering for more than a decade is scalable and adaptive to all kinds of industries, organizational sizes, cultures and corporate histories.

From intimate leadership workshops to large-scale change initiatives, or internal conferences with hundreds of participants, Niels knows the right change methodologies and fitting advisory approaches, alone, or in concert with a powerful network of trusted and experienced associates.
