Romy has a big heart and is in her element in big groups, getting them to do things they did not believe they could do, and having fun at the same time. Her attention to detail in planning events is immense, so that on the day everything flows smoothly. Romy has an amazing network of people who really care about the future and sustainability, and she is constantly seeking to learn from her own expeiences and those of others. I learned a lot working with Romy.
Romy’s personal interests include long distance sailing, horse and camel riding, and dog sledding expeditions. Read about Romy’s adventures
She is the creator of the Mid Wales Retreat and Meeting Centre, a beautiful venue situated next to her farmhouse home in rural Wales (pictured below). The centre is the ideal location for meetings, workshops, retreats, management awaydays, leadership development programmes and other kinds of gathering.

Jack’s professional work in the fields of innovation and organisation transformation began in the early 1990s. His clients range from small professional practices to global corporates, and from local government organisations to the European Commission.

Jack, I’m very proud to be part of your success story—you’ve been influential in shaping my thinking over the past 25 years, just as you’ve been influential in both UK and Dutch circles and beyond in shaping top management thinking on innovation, change, leadership and how to harness large group process. Delighted to learn that you are now opening your work up to a wider audience, and sharing your knowledge and seasoned expertise, so that you can hopefully play your role in helping to turn this economy around.

With Tim, you see the person before you see the professional – and perhaps that’s what makes him so good at what he does. He overcomes reluctance and cynicism with genuine kindness—but doesn’t miss anything of the complex undercurrents that exist in most organisations, of the relationships that for these organisations can make the difference between success and failure.
Head of Communications, Association of European Airlines
