Enabling businesses and individuals become more effective & successful when working, living and doing business across cultures
Whether your plan is to relocate for a short time or long term, being prepared for upheaval makes the difference between a happy expat experience and a miserable one.
Whether you have a job, accompanied your spous(e)/ partner, or intent to find a job, I can empower you to become more successful when working with different cultures.
I will help you with your ‘next level’ integration into Dutch culture. I can teach you about Dutch norms and values be they in the workplace, at home, in the supermarket or the playground. It goes without saying that I will give you practical skills, tools and tips.
Living in a different country can be amazing or it can be awful, and some things you really can’t influence. How you approach the experience can however make the difference between being thoroughly miserable or having a wonderful time.
The methods that I work with
For my training programs I use the knowledge I gained at Nyenrode Univesity, Lewis Communications and ICQ global + my own (personal) work experience. I spent a lot of time in France and as a project manager I travelled all over Europe. I gained quite some insights in human behaviour, the impact of cultural differences, languages and customs and habits. This mixture of knowledge and experience led to the creation of my company. Because there is a solution for miscommunication. My programs are based on 2 scientifically proven philosophies.

“I was working with Ms. Klomp during 2008 – 2010, when I was President of the Association. She has been invaluable in coordinating facilitating the development of EANO by sourcing web development, legal and financial assistance, which was integral to the grow of the organization. She has had to deal with a multilingual Executive Board and a world-wide membership over 500. As well as being the point of contact from Board and member requests, she has managed subscriptions, databases, web newsletters and collaborated on publicizing and evaluating education activities, including the annual meeting of over 1000. We have found her trustworthy, discrete, organized and efficient in all the activities that she has performed for the Board.”
