“I worked with Hans over an 18-month period as I wanted someone who could bring objectivity and insight to help me be a better leader. Hans brought objectivity, professionalism, insight and care to our work together. Unlike others in his field, he was able to practically combine knowledge, insight, experience and a deep understanding of both the nature and personal challenges of leaders. Hans brought empathy and the wiliness to challenge and ask the tough questions that leaders need to ask themselves.”
– John Harte, Managing Partner, Integrity Governance
“After many years of intense and absorbing working life I badly needed to reconnect with my personal needs.
I decided to look for a coach. When you decide to seek out a coach support, nothing can compare with an engaging person like Hans.
Hans proofed to be (and still is) a very solid sparring partner in my search for directions. Overtime he demonstrated an amazing ability to connect with me and maintain this connection even when several weeks passed between two coaching sessions. This allowed me to progress steadily in what represented for me the right course after a life of not very helpful behaviours and excessive mind talks.
I am very pleased by the improvements he helped me to achieve over a relatively short period of time. Hans has been able not only to strengthen my purpose in life only in few months time but also to substantially improve my professional life. He also guided me to reconnect with my personal needs, something that contributed to a more joyful life. As per today I am still working with Hans as I have identified new projects to achieve a joyful and balance life and I feel he will have a truly positive impact once again. I truly recommend everyone Hans!”

“The greatest benefit of Hans for me was clarity of thought. It wasn’t the case that I didn’t know what to do, it is possible there was too much I thought I could do… The fact is that my mind was jumbled. Hans helped me to simplify my mind, allow me to focus on my strengths and gain some proper clarity of thought. I emerged with direction and a renewed vigour to get my career to the next level. On top of that, the sessions were enjoyable, never stressful and something to look forward to.”

“After deciding to step away from my current job/career, I needed to take time out to gain a deeper understanding on what makes me tick and what meant the most to me. I didn’t want to spend any more time being unfulfilled by my job. That’s where Hans came in. Over the course of 3 months he was instrumental in helping me uncover my core values (career and life), build goals, vision the life I truly wanted for my family and develop a detailed plan to achieve that. I unequivocally recommend Hans’ to anyone looking for clarity and purpose in both their life and career.”
– A. Brown, Professional Services
“I decided to meet with Hans as I had been within the same industry for over 14 years and had lost my passion and drive. At the very first meeting, he opened up my eyes to where my true passion lay and over the course of the next few sessions, we then developed this further and explored various different avenues, career wise, that related to my passion for investing and personal finance. It is through Hans’s direction and support that I then had the confidence to embark on a new and exciting career within wealth management. I would have no hesitation in recommending Hans for those looking for careers’ advice and wishing to consider what could be a life changing decision.”
– Gary Youssef, Director
“Over a 12 week coaching intervention, Hans has helped me uncover and articulate my personal purpose and values, and develop an action plan to bring those to life. While our discussions have led to clear results, we’ve also taken time to explore a range of topics, and the process has been very interesting and revealing. He has supported, motivated and challenged me, and it’s been a pleasure working with him.”

A career planning workshop being run by Hans was recommended to me by a friend, so I booked to go with the hope of gaining a better understanding of how I could find a job that would be truly rewarding to me. What a great decision that I will never regret. Going on this course made me take immediate positive steps that have now enabled me to successfully change my career.
Like many people I guess, I fell into a career that although I felt I was good at, wasn’t totally fulfilling somehow, although I could never really put my finger on it.
Han’s workshop was brilliant. I gained so much from one day it’s quite unbelievable. I went in feeling a bit overwhelmed that I couldn’t change things even if I wanted to and came out feeling full of enthusiasm that I knew what I wanted to do with my life and moreover, that it was in my power to move the obstacles required to get there.
This isn’t some workshop that you do and forget about. The way that Hans facilitates your thoughts to get to the bottom of where you want to be and how you can get there, is amazing.
Hans helped me to decide on some changes that I should have made a long time ago and gave me the confidence to follow up on them. Thank you, Hans.

“Wanting to change from a career that I had become fairly successful in and not knowing exactly what direction to take, made me feel confused and lost. In just a 1.5 hour Skype session with Hans, I was left feeling reassured that a career change can be a positive thing, had a clearer idea about my skill-set, what drives me and inspired to make a change. That was a year ago and I still reflect back on that session as I move forward with my future plans. Thank you Hans for helping me to feel empowered to begin a new journey.”
