Whether or not down in the Doldrums or in deep water, one can always call on Noventus Founder and avid sailor Koen to steer the ship to fair wind and following tide. An engineer with MBA and experienced coach in the scale-up scene with a PhD on the drivers of organisational networks on the way, Koen is keen on rolling up his sleeves to get your collaborative ventures right on track. Though his "wanderlust" regularly sets this lifelong learner on his way to exploring new destinations , he upholds his motto "the journey itself is the destination". Being a team player, he makes sure to get all hands on deck and shows the crew how to trim their sails to make sure they can turn even the hardest corner .
As a professional viola player in a string quartet, Marc learnt to master the art of appropriate timing to join or step back during musical encounters between high-pitched violins and robust cellos. The subtle yet confident presence of the viola (and its master) is key to what Goethe called "the intelligent dialogue" that leads to notes blending into soul rising music. As a facilitator in a business context, this skill proves to be a unique asset when guiding people towards more effective collaboration. An Executive MBA supported Marc's switch to the business world, which he complimented with extensive exploration of creative facilitation techniques, such as LEGO® Serious Play®.
