Yvo Bronsvoort
Creative Strategist – The BrandHotel

” I return home truly and deeply recharged. With a feeling to be balanced again. Getting to know Behavioural Design as ‘deep insightful simplicity’. A very welcome overhaul that confronted me over and over again that we unconsciously make our work far too complex and made me realize how powerful this alternative thinking is. “

Michiel Gerbranda
Founder – OOGT

“I learned a great deal, easy-to-use practical models that I will be using for sure. “

Twan Timmermans
Head of communication Municipality Apeldoorn

Demmy Onink
Design Director Heftig Design

“The ultimate power of the program and your model, that it makes the abundance of insights practically applicable in a cohesive and systematic way. It was the ultimate ‘connecting the dots’ experience: both in knowledge and skills. And that is an enormous gain! Next, to that I was really glad the tempo was quite high, the other students were experienced professionals too and that the teachers brought everything with so much energy, self-relativisation and speed.”

Suzanne van Gompel
Global Minded Strategy Director
