Feedback from Clients

Klaas DeWilde - Plant Manager Friesland/Campina

“Both empathic and profound, Marianne guides you thoroughly through the proces of maturing as a leader and even more important as a human being. She brings a broad level of business experience and flexes her style and tools to whatever extend is needed to make you (small or big) steps forward. I was privileged to be coached by Marianne in an unique and personal journey. She was instrumental for me to grow towards a senior leadership role.  Marianne understands truly the craft of coaching and brought me to the next level of principle based leadership recognized by its authenticity and inside-out driven purpose. She is capable of creating a stimulating environment where trust and integrity are inviting for the vulnerability needed to progress. Thanks Marianne, you are amazing!”

Melissa Jennings - HR Manager Danone

"Excellent partner for teambuilding workshops and a pleasure to work with!"

Theo Bakker - Business Unit Manager Actemium

"As of our first intake session until today I experienced all sessions as highly educational and constructive. I always prepared the sessions with great pleasure and reflected on what we discussed. You helped me to tackle my development goals, completely open and full of energy. Thanks again, take good care and all the best with Hands-on-Talent"

Indy van Frausum - HR Manager at Umamido

“Marianne coached me towards a managerial role, towards the next step in my professional career. What I appreciated most about Marianne’s approach, was that she does not just teach you some standard techniques, she really manages to embed your learnings into your character and management style. By encouraging you to analyse and reflect on specific situations, she firmly kicks against your current thinking patterns, giving you more than just one “aha!” moment. She lets you come up with your own solutions, while guiding you along the way in a very empathetic way. Somehow, she made me feel comfortable from the very first moment, which makes opening up to her super easy and not awkward at all. If I would have to describe Marianne, I would say she is straightforward, hands-on and just a very nice and warm person”

Maryl Adler - Global Category Leader Danone

"As an executive coach, Marianne helped me to discover what is driving me as a leader and as a person and to further develop my leadership skills. Marianne is a personable coach with great listening skills. She creates a safe environment for the coaching sessions and never loses track of the agreed coaching objectives. Her approach does require you to reflect on the previous session and to prepare for the next one. This requires some time investment next to the actual coaching sessions, but for me this worked very well. In the end, I gained a lot of insights into my behavior and beliefs and how I can change them in order to be more effective as a leader. This is of course an ongoing journey, but thanks to Marianne, I believe I made a good start"

Joris Toye - General Manager Van der Valk Brussels Airport Hotel

"We have hired Marianne as a coach to improve the individual and group effectiveness of our Management Team. During the High Performance Journey, Marianne guided us through different learning modules such as Lumina Leader and Lumina Spark. As a result our team is more engaged, more focused on a common goal and more empowered. We have developed a better and stronger vision and were able to create a fun and energized environment for the team. The entire team was extremely satisfied with the level of professionalism Marianne prepared and executed all different individual and team sessions. All in a fun and positive atmosphere where each individual talent was emphasized. I would recommend Marianne as a coach for any team looking to increase their effectiveness! It will have a long lasting effect on your company's culture and results!"

Saskia Bontje - Sales & Operations Manager at Pure Benefit

"Positive, understanding, a good sparring partner and enthusiastic are the words that spring to my mind when I think about Marianne's coaching. I experienced the sessions as very valuable and educational. By her effective way of questioning I learned more about myself and developed myself. This has a huge positive impact on me and on my team. I would certainly recommend Marianne to teams who wish to work on their effectiveness"

Marc van Rooij - Business Unit Manager Actemium

"In your career you can get to a point where you think ‘What do I want for myself?’ and ‘How do I get there?’. The first step is to acknowledge that you need help and to find someone you trust. Marianne is a true professional coach, who is very capable in combining both business & personal aspects in coaching. By listening very well, confronting and probing in a safe way we got to the core. From that point I could make the rights steps. I experienced our collaboration as very pleasant and it boosted my personal development"

Mieske Seegers-de Jong - Manager HR & Helmond Academy at City of Helmond

"Your coaching trajectory has had a profound effect on me, offering me a great deal. Together we have built up a nurturing relationship in but a short period of time. During the process you have safeguarded the logical construct, while steering the crags with the lightest of hands to offer me the necessary space and depth. I felt respected as an equal, even when underlying themes were touched upon. At those moments we investigated whether I might be in need of alternative support. As you saw and felt that I had sufficient strength and opportunity to come to terms with past events, we had the mutual trust to tackle those underlying themes. That was the right decision, as my self-confidence has greatly increased since. The effect of the coaching is far greater, than I would have expected. Thank you for assisting me in this beautiful process of development"

Daphne Dekkers - HR advisor at Actemium

"Marianne you are in 1 word fantastic! I couldn’t have wished for a better added value experience to go through to ‘my bible’ Covey. You are a true professional, who helped me to look at myself in a different way. I have discovered competencies that I already used for the benefit of others, but not for myself. You probe, listen and was really there for me. You could be challenging during the learning process, which helped me to make a step change. Engaged and yet on a professional distance, a very valuable mix. I cannot see any points for improvement. There was enough flexibility to discuss my cases. You are an excellent coach and I am very grateful to have experienced this process together with you!"

Niels Renders - Project Manager at Actemium

"Marianne is a nice conversation partner, with whom I felt at ease. She was able to analyse my situation quickly and put it into words, which was often difficult for me to do. Because we co-created a coaching plan upfront, we were able to check if we were still working on the relevant topics and could adjust accordingly. I often put the discussed leadership techniques into my practise. I experienced Marianne’s coaching as very pleasant and together we achieved the desired results"

Simon van den Bighelaar - Senior Advisor at City of Helmond

"Over the last year Marianne was my coach in a management development project. Next to the fact that Marianne is a very nice person, she supported me fabulously. I feel stronger as a leader and, even better, I have a sharper than ever view on my core values (thank you!). In our sessions Marianne listened very well to my needs and created a tailor-made coaching plan. In my case combining theory & models with my day-to-day work. I look back on this period with lots of enjoyment and I fully recommend Marianne!"

Michiel van Vlijmen - Global Business Developer at Actemium

"During a difficult period in life I had the pleasure to be coached by Marianne and without her professional help I wouldn’t be the person that I’m now. Her 100% professional dedication has brought my talents up in me and made me believe in life again. Well done Marianne, thank you"

Timo Hoogeboom - General Manager Mars The Netherlands (now CEO at HAK)

"Marianne has excellently supported our management team as team coach towards a High Performance team. She is a professional, sensitive to individuals and teams. She helps to discuss tention and at the same time she is focussed on concrete objectives. I can wholeheartily recommend Marianne as team coach"

Philip Makkink - Projectmanager financing and fundraising Marker Wadden at Natuurmonumenten

"During the period I worked with Marianne she was a very engaged, pleasant and professional coach. Marianne has the gift to challenge and confront you with your own wishes, competencies and values. The sessions with Marianne really helped me to create a vision on my career development and to actually take steps to get there"

Inge Heijmans - Senior advisor P&O Engie

“Marianne supported me (in her own unique way) during ‘my climbing and searching journey’ in becoming (again) the owner of my life. She helped choosing the right ways for me to confront my stubborn limiting beliefs and change them into new beliefs. Her empathetic and calm way of coaching made that I left the sometimes emotional and confronting sessions with lots of energy. Marianne helped me to experience tranquility and freedom to be strongly focussed. Thank you, Marianne!"

Gerrit Bout - Sr. HR manager Van Lanschot Bankiers

"A workshop of Marianne means 'high quality, inspiration, reflection and above all a good mixture of theory and practice'"

Rian Wijdeveld - HR manager Bakkersland

"Last year I asked Marianne to coach me. During this year she was both a fantastic listener as a tough challenger for me. In our coaching sessions we easily went from difficult topics to bursting in laughter. We had fun exploring and Marianne made it easy for me to take decions.

I gained lot's of insights on my talents and am looking forward to taking next steps in both my career and personal life. Thanks Marianne!"

Walter van Ruijven - Workforce Flexibility and Recruitment expert

"I joined a workshop on Talent Management delivered by Marianne. I recommend her for her pragmatic approach, experience and ability to find the right mixture of theory, practice and discussion."

Greetje Bron-Knecht - Interim HR Manager

"I highly recommend Marianne for delivering quality training sessions. Marianne can keep her audience interested and entertained effortlessly it seems. I've experienced her as very knowledgeable in the field of people performance management."

Olaf Sleutjes - Managing Director Redumax BV

"Entrepreneurship is like playing top sports! Coaching makes the difference between performing and excelling. Just like in top sports High Performance is a combination of strong developed talents, drive and the right personal coaching. During our coaching journey Marianne’ s integrity, passion and talents helped me to find, to consolidate and to optimise my personal balance and space. I am able to excel my talents by the right personal coaching.

Moos de Fretes - Regional Coordinator Professional Competence Safety Region Brabant South-East

"Marianne has coached me on several occasions, with amazing results for me and for the relationship coach/coachee. Marianne's added value is in four words: reliable, trust, safety and integrity. The basis to reach the 'dot on the horizon', together with Marianne!"
