"I have had the pleasur to work with Kirsten for the past two years. She is an inspiring and open individual that is flexible, strategic, professional and creative, both as a facillitator and as a change agent. We've worked with her on several projects, including the development and presentation of a new platofmr for Employee Engagement and Community Investment. Her personal drive and enthusiasm, language skills and extensive network both inside and outside of the Netherlands have proven to be a valuable asset. Kirsten is a engaging speaker, whom i would highly recommend to any organization looking for inspiration, innovation or change."
