Bart van Grinsven
Managing Partner

Bart has led training programmes for businesses in a variety of sectors, including food and beverage, oil and gas, banking and financial services, and manufacturing, for groups varying in size from 10 to 250 individuals.  Leadership & Managerial Development, Situational Leadership, Team Alignment Programs, Transactional Analysis, Behavioural Therapy, Assertive Behavior, Coaching, and Communication are among the services he provides as a consultant.

Bart’s firm belief in positive input, combined with his certifications in NLP, REACH ECOSYSTEM, Management, Communication, Behavioural Therapy, Sociotherapy, and Transactional Analysis, means that participants benefit greatly from his trainings.

His programmes are well-structured, with simple and attainable goals, but they are infused with his witty and fun-loving personality, ensuring a great learning experience.

Bart’s one-of-a-kind approach to integrating Psychometric Models (REACH ECOSYSTEM, Myers-Briggs Type Indicator) with Soft-Skills Development has helped him to produce exceptional results with his participants.

He is able to do so because of his extensive experience as an HR Consultant and former leader in the Dutch Health Industry. Since he has lived in Malaysia for over 15 years, he is able to incorporate his own cultural context as well as his encounters with Malaysian culture into his training programmes.
