Evelien as sparring partner and business coach

“As a trainer and coach, I very much enjoy having Evelien as my business coach. I am happy for her to coach me on all topics concerning my business. I find her calm and ability to create an open space, combined with her involvement, humour and passion, a real must-do for all independent entrepreneurs.

 

During the transition from one company to another, Evelien managed to get the pain points clearly on the table. She then managed to transform them, in a fantastic way into a different and certainly better result for the future. After rounding off one company, we then looked together at a wonderful start-up of my new company. After only half a day, we had the framework of my services rock solid, based on the core of who I am as entrepreneur. The next day I was ready to make an offer to a few customers using the new format, two of which signed up immediately. A great result.

 

When you are with Evelien, you are number one. She is hospitable, customer oriented and involved. Evelien does not shy away from resistance or considerably difficult situations. She remains calm, maintains an overview and has a committed and professional approach. During a VIP day you can investigate many areas with her, and she ensures that the direction, focus and time are monitored so that you can actually get started.”

Taking big steps in a short time

 

“Committed, lovingly to-the-point, stimulating with a focus on results, that is what Evelien is to me in her coaching. Working with her brought me space and peace in my head and heart. And more self-confidence. With as direct result that I am happier with myself and with my life. Evelien has given me the tools to listen to myself, recognize and break patterns and how to give myself a kick up the behind. My ambition and goals as an entrepreneur are a lot more concrete again.

 

What touches me most about working with Evelien is her personality and way of working. A special person with a passion for her profession and a lot of confidence in her client. She knows how to quickly create a bond of trust, indispensable for a successful coaching process. Evelien has given me insight into various matters; helped me look inside myself, let me search and find and reassured me more than once, pointing out my own strength, guts and perseverance. The choice of assignments was very inspiring. It was quite hard work, but I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the result every time. I have been able to take big steps in a short period of time, both in business and in private. Evelien knows how to find the inner fire (no matter how small) and ensures that it burns bright again.”

She doesn’t need much to see right through you

 

“I wanted to grow, both personally and professionally. I was looking for a solid foundation and struggled to manifest myself. I was also looking for a good sparring partner. With Evelien’s help, I clarified exactly what I want and how I will implement it. I made concrete choices and developed new plans under her guidance.
Evelien has a warm personality. She doesn’t need much to see right through you, so you quickly get to the core. She holds up a mirror and is not afraid to confront you with it. Evelien works with a clear plan, the Signature 4 Success® method. That provides a good foundation. At the same time, she is flexible in how she applies it and, together with you, assesses the needs per session. If you are looking for a coach who can confront you, enthuse you and give you clarity, then you have a wonderful and warm-hearted one in Evelien.”

Proactive, finely critical and persevering

 

“Working with Evelien will take you far, it immediately felt good. I was looking for a clear direction for my company and also wanted more balance and peace. I now have developed my business signature and have found more balance and peace. I have achieved everything I wanted, plus a new concept that I am very excited about.

 

It is all much clearer to me now. Evelien is a very pleasant coach, proactive, finely critical and persevering. Just what I need. What I believe makes Evelien unique, is that she really feels what you need and whether something “needs” to be refined further because it does not feel right yet. She gives her opinion and has good ideas, in a modest and unobtrusive way. So nice.”

 

– Annegreet de Graaf – Octopus Bureau for Giftedness

This makes for wonderful brainstorming sessions and conversations, which provide a deeper insight, so that I now see new ideas and solutions. It is inspiring and seen the amount of experience around the table, the useful tips and tricks will be buzzing around your ears. Evelien’s guidance is full of expertise, to-the-point, in-depth and very insightful. Every entrepreneur should do this!”

“There is a “before Evelien “and an “after Evelien” as far as my company is concerned.
Before working with her, I felt like I was walking on quicksand. During the coaching process a solid foundation was created. My purpose and business signature went from vague to very clear.
I now know why I do what I do, and which specific products and services fit with this. Evelien keeps you sharp, thinks actively with you and you get her full attention.”

Evelien as speaker

 

“I wish every entrepreneur or professional could have Evelien as a coach! Evelien gave an entrepreneur session during our networking meeting. It was a top-notch session. Her own experiences and inspiring insights, combined with the way she stimulates self-reflection among the participants, ensures you get drawn into her story. Our visitors, including myself, hung on her every word. I heartily recommend Evelien’s lectures, workshops and coaching programs.”
Martin Planken, creative director / internet entrepreneur Topshelf Media
“Evelien is an enthusiastic coach who gave an inspiring presentation that encourages reflection and self-confrontation on what you actually want. The prevailing question is: Is this it? It forces you to make choices and to be aware of them, and to accept that sometimes you just have to let things go. I advise those who struggle with making choices and / or want to change course, to attend one of Evelien’s workshops. You gain new insights.”
– Marco van den Doel, De Communicatiefabriek
