"We loved it, we liked the approachable way of presenting by Marco. We had a very fruitful afternoon, thank you for your input."

Corné Grootenboer

Manager marketing at Albeda College

"With fascinating stories Marco has shown us how you can really work together and perform better. With a lot of humor and fun we have participated with the complete MT in his HPO workshop. It inspires you to get the best out of yourself and your colleagues."

Pascal Timmermans

Program Manager at TSS Pharmapartners

"Great inspiring! Nice to see that both we as managers, but also our employees were inspired in this workshop. Marco knows how to start the dialogue with appealing examples. I am proud to be the big elephant of my business unit. "

Johan Boersma

Head of Analytical Development at Mylan

“Looking back I realize again what a great gift Esther Mollema has given to all women. I Hope that I can attend more workshops and learn more from her!”

Ilse Roeleveld

Compliance Officer ING

"If we want to emphasize our students’ qualities, we should also emphasize our teachers’ qualities; that’s why I applied feedforward."

Caroline Versprille

Head of a primary school

“Feedforward is very stimulating. It identifies the points of development. The feedback session with Muriel made me believe that I can actually do it!!”

Renée-Andrée Koornstra – Head FOM Central Personnel FOM

“We have participated in team training before; you have to be vulnerable. Therefore, positive feedback is much more appropriate than focusing on negative aspects, or on things that aren’t there.”

Karin van der Ploeg – Manager Liandon – Team Strategic Environment Management

“For me, feedforward confirms my personality, how I act, and it gives me insight into how I can use my qualities even more effectively.”

Annie Oude Hengel – Sales Support Manager at Heineken

“There really lies added value in discussing your personal results with a feedforward coach. It makes me aware of the qualities I can use to improve other qualities.”

Annie Oude Hengel – Sales Support Manager at Heineken

“Esther Mollema summarizes brilliantly how our own Mindbugs continue to stop this change structurally and lists practical tools we can use to achieve much stronger inclusive leadership.”

Sonya Richardson

President Professional Women’s Network Global

“The workshop on gender diversity is a concrete and well-founded story. Every manager should hear this story.”

Paul Brinker

Group Finance ING

“I really enjoyed the Mindbugs workshop. The insights were not very new to me but I was very impressed by how impactfully those insights and Mindbugs were highlighted.”

Hetty Fento

manager Everheds Faasen, lawyers and notaries

“Diversity has started as a project but it is now a permanent part of our process, which is what you want to achieve as an organization.”

Pieter Jongstra

former CEO EY Nederland

“With her no-nonsense mentality and in-depth knowledge about diversity in relation to high-performance organizations, Esther allows both men and women to see and feel the power of diversity. You are touched by Esther, whether you talk to her one on one or read one of her books. I am always impressed by her impact.”

Nicolette Loonen

member of ABP’s Supervisory Board

“With this training, you can clearly see that people think in traditional patterns. The test showed, for example, that I also have a slight preference for male leadership and that I also have biases about women who presumably cannot drive.”

Alma Krug

diversity program manager at Heijmans

“After having taken part Chairperson twice, I can say that this is a perfect platform for women to take a peek into the world of a Commissioner”.

Marike van Lier Lels – commissioner Reed Elsevier

“Esther Mollema brings up for discussion that which cannot be discussed in terms of diversity and high performance at Schiphol Group.”

Jos Nijhuis

former President and CEO of Schiphol Group

“An enormous source of information; such a rich tool. The results enable me to go deeper, because it’s presented in an open and positive way and not in a coercive way like ‘thou shalt…’”

Lucette Teurlings – Policy Officer HR Management University
