What customers say

  • I’ve had the pleasure to have Bertine as a coach during my time at the Nyenrode Business University. She was leading a group of interim managers through several intervision sessions. During this time she showed great skill in focussing the discussions and adding structure while keeping a open and flexible environment. Besides that she also provided the team with valuable feedback and knowledge.

    - Geert Valk, Operations manager IT
  • The coaching at Work Wise helped me enormously in a time where I wanted to focus on my qualities and talents. Bertine is a patient, highly driven professional with a profound insight in personal development matters. She helped me a great deal in making the right choices and choosing a path that is most suitable. Never I doubted my choices since then.

Very good.” “Excellent, both as a person and as a process keeper.” “Good confidential atmosphere. Sincere interest in each other.”
