Marijn is warm, wise and impactful.

“Marijn contacted me asking if I would feature in a series of documentaries on female role models in the financial sector. During the process of making the documentary I got to know Marijn as warm, wise and impactful. Her experience, dedication and passion for female leadership, female entrepreneurship and access to finance for women are inspiring.”

Kshama Fernandes – CEO Northern Arc. Chennai, India.

Marijn brings female bankers and female entrepreneurs together.

“It was during a bus ride to a dinner, at the Global Banking Alliance for Women’s annual meeting in Sao Paulo, that we started talking. That conversation led to us organizing a female focus on financial inclusion leadership program in Zambia. Bringing female bankers and female entrepreneurs together proved to be an effective catalyst for change and Zambian banks have become much more effective in creating access to finance for women. “

I have loved every second of our precious coaching time.

“Marijn has walked with me on my professional journey over the past year as I have been orchestrating the transition into the ‘third act’ of my career. Her warm, supportive and structured coaching style has helped me to reflect deeply, challenge my assumptions and distil my skills, experiences and preferences into a vision for the future that I feel confident to set into motion. I have loved every second of our precious coaching time together.”

Jen Braswell – Director Value Creation Strategies, CDC. London, United Kingdom.

I have acquired a lifetime lesson.

I was at a crossroads in my life, when I approached Marijn, asking for help to express an unusual request to our top management. We critically analyzed my case, build various scenarios, and counterarguments, and together developed a narrative that would support my upcoming negotiation. I have no doubt that I have acquired a lifetime lesson – for these kinds of high-level requests, it is a must to come prepared.”
