"Many great scientific ideas have never – and will never – become a success, simply due to the lack of  leadership skills."

It would be my honour to guide you! – Louise Mennen

Science brings us successful improvements, innovative ideas, creative solutions and valuable knew knowledge. Creating these successes in science requires group work and excellent leadership. In our work we have seen many scientists who feel challenged by the heavy work load, a too critical work environment and insufficient leadership. They want to know how to best fulfil their leadership role and how to inspire and motivate others to get the best out of them.

Our dream is therefore to improve science by training scientists to become great inspiring leaders. We are interested in the scientist, the person behind the science. We help scientists to move forward by learning how to inspire and motivate others, how to stay true to themselves, how to stay passionate, while doing things differently.

About Me

OUR Services.

One of the cornerstones of leadership is knowing yourself and your behavioural patterns. Developing yourself goes hand in hand with developing new skills. Both are necessary to be a successful leader. We are specialized in training and coaching in (personal) leadership and communication specifically designed for scientists.

We train scientists at all levels, from the starting PhD-student to full professors and group leaders. We equally train scientists working in a non-academic environment, such as an R&D department, a government organisation or an NGO.

Wondering what you would need? You can get some inspiration here. We tailor/design each training to your specific needs and wishes. For more information please contact us.


We train and coach in Dutch, English and French. We have an inspiring training location at our office in Bloemendaal (Villa Hartenlust, close to Bloemendaal railway station and free parking). We also provide training in house or at a location of your choice.

Pricing of our work depends highly on the requested services. For more information please contact us.
