Our focus Female leadership and Gender diversity and Inclusion. We put women in charge. We also have strategic alignments with other expert companies like executive search firm Van der Laan & Co.
Executive search is profession where experience is of the utmost importance. Understanding the ropes, building and maintaining relevant networks, building trust, a quick understanding of the essence of what is required and acting upon that knowledge.
It helps that they have lots of ‘flight hours’. Their ambition and the search profession itself ensures that their experience does not become routine. Each contact and each assignment provides them with the opportunity to find the perfect person for the position and the organization, and they go for what they believe to be the best, even to the irritating limit.
Their standard is to offer 50% male and 50% female candidates. But even if clients ask them to offer female candidates only they are still very successful.
During the Women’s Career Program you learn how to play the game strategically in your own authentic way. The topics are very diverse and interesting. I like the interactive way it’s been given. The power of working in a small group is that you are forced to follow your personal drive.
I believed this was a very valuable and interesting program and am so happy I participated. I now like ‘the game’ and I see enough possibilities to put in practice. It helps me to prepare conversations, but also to reflect on these conversations to take lessons of it. The program was various and challenging. It costs energy but also gives energy.
What a great night with Julia Wouters in ‘De Rode Hoed’. Interesting, to the point, no complaining, vulnerable and funny as well. Great!
