Sparring sessions

"Sparring with Moniek is lively. She gives sharp edged feedback and insights which you do not even consider if she might be right... you know she ís. With a great smile and laughter she makes issues light weighted. Moniek is damn good."  
                                                       Bas Dekker, Commercial Director LG at LG Electronics Benelux

Is a project difficult to get going because the strategy is not right or is it that the concerned manager does not feel comfortable with it? What is the cooperation like within the MT? Sometimes, as a CEO, director or MT team member, you need feedback; an objective vision about a business project or an honest comment about your own performance. Then, sparring with Business in Person is something for you.

With these sorts of issues Moniek can couple her high-quality commercial and marketing experience with the capacity to connect and motivate people. Every session begins with listening sincerely and asking tantalizing questions. Through sparring, dormant problems are brought to the surface and subsequently solved. She makes sure people get the best out of themselves and perform optimally again in a team.

Do you want to go a step further? Then Moniek & Strategy  is something for you.

"Moniek has been of great value to RED. We hired her to help our leadership team navigate through a strategy development and commercial focus process. She has been able to start on a very fundamental level and facilitate our team to end with very concrete action plans. In addition to the business focus, Moniek is very sensitive to personal preferences and group dynamics. Where needed, she will simply say what nobody wants to hear but what needs to be said. She will listen while securing progress."  
Raymond de Looze , Founder RED
"Working with Moniek is inspiring. Moniek has the ability to approach challenges with a fresh and positive energy whilst focussing on the key targets and goals to be achieved. Monieks' vast business experience enables her to create a sound base of understanding with groups and individuals to reach the deeper personal desires and ambitions, so that strategy and creation of plans can be lifted to a new level. "
Laurien van Unen, Founder Connecting Brands
 

My many years of commercial and marketing experience, as the director of Nespresso amongst others, also play an important role in strategy. I notice time and time again that companies appreciate someone from "outside" with business knowledge who looks at strategic plans with a "bird's eye view". Someone who dares to ask tantalizing questions, analyses keenly and follows up with recommendations to put the process onto the right track. In this process I like to come up with targeted solutions with concrete results.

Whereas sparring, especially with an advisory character, typically occurs at an individual level, strategy is a group process where after a few sessions, I - together with the director or the MT - come up with a concrete roadmap.

"Working with Moniek gives you a peace of mind.
She will do whatever it takes to get the job done and therefore never lets you down."  
                                         Tamara Senf , Foresight & Innovation Partner at Pepperbrands
 
Moniek is able to break down projects, issues and challenges to the essentials and stick to these essentials to make progress. She takes the lead and knows where she wants to go. It was a pleasure to walk along
                                          Joost Driesen, Owner iMediate

For me, "support" is more than "hands on" encouragement. Companies regularly hire me to manage specific projects and to keep them on the right track. Of course, I apply elements from my "sparring" and "strategy" pallet:  Does everyone in the team work well together? Does the strategic route agree with the desired end result? So, customers get more than support from me. I also find it satisfying to enthuse, connect, motivate people in a team and to get everyone's focus sharp again.

In these ways, I am a positively-critical partner of the Board of Directors who always keeps a birds-eye-view of the puzzle that a project often is.
