Career Coaching

HR Manager

“I doubted my current job for 2 years, but didn’t dare to take the step towards self-employment. Now I’m self-employed and that feels great! Bram showed me how to look at what I really want, because usually you already know that from the inside and continuing with something you dislike costs a lot of energy.”

“I look back with a lot of pleasure at the coaching sessions with Bram about which career suits me and if my current job matches with that. He helped me with this decision making and helped me to chose for something that fits me better. I took this step and it feels much better now. Because of Bram as my coach I found more focus and via the sessions and exercises I’ve found the patience, energy and grip again.

Bram is a great listener, understanding, patient and tracks down the underlying issues that kept me away from action.
I definitely recommend Bram as a coach to everyone that need control and want more focus in his or her life.”

“The return of investment (a coach is an investment) was already after two sessions. Bram learned me how to think creative, be patient, and helped me with new ideas for both my startup and already existing company. Two birds with one stone!
I’ve met with Bram when I was starting my own Social Media Marketing Agency School. Via the Pak An Foundation I got introduced to Bram and we matched directly. Bram is open and honest in his feedback and checks where he can coach you to move forward. With an open mind and his business sense Bram has been a ‘flywheel’ for me, and a motivator!

“Bram feels really well with subject needs (more) attention. In a confronting but pleasant way he holds up a mirror which has helped me a lot as entrepreneur.”

“Bram is really interested and because of his active listening and good questions I was able to manage and understand my thoughts. Via a small exercise which I could finish from home I managed to answer some important life questions. I’m still very happy with it!”

“A coaching trajectory helps, but you need to find the right coach! I have learned a lot from Bram in a short period. Where a psychologist only listen to your pain points, Bram helped me with tips and tricks to fix these. A new world opened up for me!”
