Testimonies from Clients


Christine Magistretti-Naville, Chair of the Board, IFPD

The Board and staff of IFPD are extremely grateful to Koenraad and Smruti for having led us through a revision of the Foundation’s strategy and establishing the basis for a renewed five year strategic plan.

Both Koenraad Van Brabant and Smruti Patel have been very forthcoming, easy-going personalities and it is a pleasure to work with them.

Their extensive experience in field work in various countries, as well as their competence as consultants brought much insight into our discussions.

All participants in our "strategic retreat" have learned much from Koenraad and Smruti through their leadership and guidance in a challenging exercise. We highly recommend these two consultants to any organisation in need of revising their strategy or projects.

Participants in a team coaching retreat

I wanted to thank you for providing us with an open atmosphere that was conducive to different types of exchange. You brought out positive thoughts/reflections from many of us. The calm and serenity with which you approached the challenging/hurtful conversations was desperately needed. I only regret that we did not have an additional day to get through more of the muddy waters! "

“I have very much appreciated your ‘savoir être’. You reminded me of who I am and where I would like to go. You reawakened my courage and confidence that I can and will find my way and that I have to go for it.”
