At Innergy2000, we are committed to giving our clients the best experience possible. We achieve this thanks to a seasoned team of dedicated individuals. One of our strengths is our small team: we care about each other, and we also care about each and every client and participant in our workshops and coaching programs. Throughout our journey with clients, we make sure that our clients always deal with the same person for all their needs.
For specific projects that require additional resources, we also collaborate with a network of partner agencies and qualified consultants when needed.
Our core team is composed of four highly experienced and dynamic consultants and trainers. Each Innergy2000 team member has over 20 years of experience, a majority of these spent with international organizations as staff members or consultants. We have worked worldwide and trained and coached participants of over 140 nationalities at all levels of responsibility, including senior management.
The training, facilitation and coaching services we offer benefit from each team member’s extensive technical expertise and their particular sensitivity towards different cultural and learning expectations.
