Testimonials

Koen Peeters, Sales Manager Smith Medical Belgium.

“Michel sees to it that subjects are developed and made easier to grasp in the context of a passionate and enthusiastic approach. His interactive seminars on commercial and interpersonal skills dovetail nicely with our environment and our requirements. Our sales team today is far more able to understand client needs and to respond to them. We have grown together and we are a stronger team now.”


Eric de Leeuw, Inspector Urbanism, Community of Schaerbeek.

“I used to anticipate a tense attitude from site supervisors by being tense myself. I learned to approach them with a different mindset. Today I have better and more impactful relationships from the first contact.”


Bakary Sékou Coulibaly, IFAD Country Programme Officer, Mali.

“Through the workshop for pooling leadership experience, I got to know myself better through the various exercises, such as the 4-colour model. These exercises enabled me to better understand my interrelationships with the teams that are under my management for the programme of work. They also allowed me to identify those behavioural aspects of a Leader needing to be developed further. On this basis, I prepared an action plan to improve these interrelationships. The implementation of this plan began on my return to Mali with the organisation of monthly meetings. Ultimately, I was particularly struck by the assurance with which Michel was able to illustrate the theoretical concepts/key messages of the seminar using very concrete examples.”

Bart Menten, Executive Director, Delen Private Bank, Belgium.

“Michel helped me understand the importance of both verbal and non-verbal communication during a speech. The combination of the theoretical approach and the practical exercises allows me today to start well prepared and to tackle a speech with confidence. Speaking in public is no longer a task but something to enjoy.”


Thomas Steeg, Director, HR Animal Health, Merck Germany

“Michel was here at our site to deliver a corporate wide program to employees from all over Germany sites. As an external consultant he provided us learning points with extreme professionalism and in a manner as if he was with our company for a long time. I appreciate his industrial experience and the way he brings this into workshops so that participants develop new insights and start their own development.”

Marnix Denys, Managing Director beMedTech Belgium

“It's incredible how, even after 30 years in the business, you finally realise how you can still increase your impact as a speaker. Michel builds up your knowledge and skills logically, and the videos are irrefutable proof that each participant very quickly becomes much better. Highly recommended”

Nicolas, Langeraet, Marketing Lead Inhaled Respiratory, AstraZeneca, Belgium

“A 2-day meeting with Michel is an investment in self-reflection and efficient cooperation. You get to know yourself better, and also become more aware of how others are put together and want to be approached. Worthwhile for every team that wants to improve!”

Annie Dubois, Human Resources Business Partners, Merck Canada Inc.

“I salute the great professionalism, relevance and friendliness of the training officer Michel Zellien. He is very effective in the way he goes about sharing his experience in leadership with us”.


Suzanne Hartmann, pediatrician, Franciscus Hospital Roosendael.

"Michel Zellien dares to challenge participants. His course topics, engaging assignments and constructive feedback (e.g. through video recordings) are inspiring."


Aboubacar Ouattara, Coordonnateur National PASPRU, Burkina Faso.

“Michel Zellien took into consideration my concerns and helped me to overcome them using his practical, relaxed and friendly method. This enabled me to learn a great deal in very little time. In a word, I have acquired some simple, effective and concrete tools which have significantly improved my people management. The impact can be seen in the results of the Development Programme that I direct."


Christian Devos, Director of the Cathedral, Antwerp, Belgium

“The Cathedral of Our Blessed Lady is the icon of the city of Antwerp. Some 30 professionals work there to care for the building and keep it open for visitors. Our management team took part in the seminar on ‘Interpersonal and team effectiveness' supervised by Michel. Since then, mutual communication and understanding have improved a lot! We also learned a number of leadership and coaching styles. In a professional yet informal way, and using his great sense of humour, Michel helped us create an (even) more inspiring working climate in which work is a pleasure and we get things done!
We are happy to continue our journey with Michel!"
