What our clients say…

Charlotte is a driven social entrepreneur with a smart mind, a big heart and a strong business intuition. She can be trusted to always provide a refreshing, independent, honest perspective combined with a practical, hands-on orientation. I truly enjoyed working with her.”

Menno Van Dijk, former McKinsey & Company tenured Director , CEO at THNK School of Creative Leadership.

“Bear In Mind’s coaching has helped me become aware of my qualities and the power of the new organisation. It was with that help that I was able to faster, and with greater effectiveness, position myself in the new organization.”

“After coming back to the Netherlands, after 15 years abroad, Bear In Mind enabled me to broaden and deepen my personal qualities and reflection abilities, whereby I was able to increase my communication and management skills towards peers and (in)direct reports. My experiences with Bear In Mind also made me more aware of how I could utilise my “non-Dutch” experiences to handle unusual and new Dutch situations in an effective manner.”

“Charlotte is a sparkling, creative, enterprising, engaging, and above all intelligent woman who is able to quickly come towards the core of what’s happening in both personal and professional matters. She is able to aptly and concisely express what she perceives. Charlotte is very empathetic, and able to use her social antennae as no other to uncompromisingly win over the trust of individual people and groups. In short: I highly recommend Charlotte.”

Frans Stibbe, Managing Partner Deloitte Legal BV

“I was lucky enough to meet one of the Bear In Mind coaches when I did the Hoffman process in August 2013. Carefully listening and with a great sense of humor Charlotte’s smile shines through her eyes when serious. Open, authentic and compassionate. If you are a Dutch Hoffman Graduate looking for ‘after process coaches’, Bear In Mind can connect you with Hoffmanite Coaches.”
