Executive coach Bert van der Wijk

Bert van der Wijk

“I believe that a new place can always be found for driven, focussed executives. The trick is to find the right link. And that is what I have been doing for the past 25 years. For the largest part, coaching is about listening carefully. No matter how many theories you might apply, the crux is to discover what someone really wants, and subsequently work towards that with purpose.”

Bert has been a head hunter for 30 years, and it shows. Like no other he is able to match what an individual is looking for to an organisation. Born and bred in Groningen, he prefers to keep things simple. His coaching style is casual and purposeful. Bert gets to the point quickly: under his auspices, you as a coachee will have a rock-solid elevator pitch in no time. As well as the energy to put your new story out there, on the market.

Bert worked in management positions with Ford, ABN AMRO and ReedElsevier, prior to dedicating himself to Executive Search. From 1992 he led his own company. Since 2013, he has been focussed exclusively on the Non Executive Board Member, commissioners and supervisors. Precision and meticulousness are what characterise his style of coaching. He utilises his vast knowledge of the career market for the benefit of his clients with pleasure and purpose.
