Design and delivery of leadership lectures and courses

We transitioned to online delivery of our executive leadership programmes, consulting and lectures early in 2020. The COVID-19 pandemic was the accelerator of our using digital platforms to reach a wider audience. Much of the world remains volatile as a result of subsequent crises. We navigate this volatility by applying a hybrid work model and adapting quickly to circumstances demanding a different approach. This flexibility in how we interact with our clients allows us to achieve the level of effectiveness and efficiency we stand for.

We help drive progress by demonstrating to our clients how they can build resilience and prepare for effective business developments and new areas of focus in the post-pandemic reality.

It has been a pleasure and honour to design and launch some of our clients’ first online programmes for their employees in multiple markets.

Change Management Consulting

We offer organisations support as they progress to a different business model and organisational structure, a larger geographical scope, a different market approach or a phase of post-merger integration.

Suitable strategies, models and approaches are used to facilitate ongoing change in a world that has become intolerant of more of the same. Our approach is tailored to our clients’ specific wishes, needs, culture and the nature of the envisaged change. We develop coaching programmes suited to each area of the business with the objective of creating support, involvement and the capacity to make the change happen.

Executive Team Coaching: talent & skills development

In a world of talent scarcity, offering the right circumstances to employees to develop their talents and to adapt to new circumstances will become an organisation’s greatest competitive advantage.

With new team structures and the use of artificial intelligence on the rise, and organisational agility becoming a number one requirement, managers will need to adapt their own management styles, focus and choices to meet new standards. Their teams will simultaneously be challenged to build new skills. It is this ongoing development that ensures organisations remain or become attractive employers and business partners.

We provide coaching to facilitate this process of skills development. A few examples of topics that are frequently requested: personal role and positioning; decision making; personal effectiveness; resilience; strategic communication; turning diversity to a competitive advantage with specific attention for intercultural, gender, intergenerational diversity and more recently, neurodiversity.

Founder's Story:

My Personal Story

My story starts with the impact of moving from the southern hemisphere to Northern Europe. The sudden disruption and alienation proved to be of significant value in my career. Coming from a multicultural ‘rainbow’ society and discovering new European cultures planted the seed for a career that would cross cultures and borders. After working for an American multinational in The Netherlands and gaining managerial experience, I became an entrepreneur in the marketing sector, employing teams in different countries and being a long-term business partner to global corporations.

Business Choices

Whilst working as a marketing entrepreneur in complex markets, my colleagues and I observed how our clients experienced costly challenges in their dealings with different cultures. All culture and communication related mistakes had to be rectified to restore trust and progress. I played a key part in many ‘restoration’ projects, liaising between my clients and their foreign stakeholders.

This inspired me to prepare in the USA for a consulting role in the field of international leadership.

The establishment of JPC International is the result of my desire to help organisations increase their skills and competencies in the international arena. My company is in constant transition moving with the times to offer our clients in different markets the most current, relevant and thought-provoking insights to encourage beneficial change and facilitate progress.

Customer Focus

The leadership support we provide to accelerate progress is based on our customer’s unique circumstances.
As an experienced business professional, I seek to quickly understand your business, dilemma or objectives and provide the support best suited to you and your company in the current climate of revolutionary digitisation.
This may be a result-driven learning & development programme, a stimulating workshop, effective advisory support or an interactive lecture for your organisation.
