Maarten Konings, Operational & Safety Excellence manager
Bart Remmerie, Learning & development manager

‘The power of the effective formula of the leadership program with FLY Consult can be found in:
- The way the content of the program is suitably customized to the needs of the customer, and the readiness to immediately implement improvements based on customer feedback
- The quality of the trainers who anticipate the level of the group, and the sensitivities within the group very well, so that for each participant the training addresses his/her own needs.’


Danielle Mc Pherson, European HR Director

'Having worked with Leon for personal coaching at the start of my executive role I know that his experience and talent of approaching things from different perspectives enables me and my team to perform better, with more confidence to tackle difficult situations. From this experience we engaged with Fly Consult to help us with the development of a global leadership programme. The strength of their approach lies in the fact that they spend time to understand the business context, challenges, competency levels and expectations of our employees following the programme. They welcome personal input, deliver a tailored approach that fits around our business and employees attending the programme and remain reasonably priced.'
