TESTIMONIALS

NAOMI BROOKER

NAOMI BROOKER RESEARCH DIRECTOR/ INFORMA LIFE SCIENCES

I have had the pleasure of meeting Freija when she acted as a keynote speaker during Crops and Chemicals and the Agbio Congress. She is an excellent speaker and someone who provides presentations that think outside of the box. I would highly recommend Freija for speaking engagements.

LENNY VAN ONSELEN

LENNY VAN ONSELEN LECTURER/ THE HAGUE UNIVERSITIY OF APPLIED SCIENCES

Freija van Duijne is able to make of the complex task of future telling, an easy breezy assignment for our students. These students were new to scenario building and creativity, but Freija facilitated their learning process with much patience and enthusiasm. I will definitely hire Freija again for our next scenario building class!

PETER SCHMEITZ

PETER SCHMEITZ PROJECT MANAGER/ MINISTERY OF ECONOMIC AFFAIRS

Ik heb Freija binnengehaald vanwege haar gave om strategisch en creatief denken te koppelen aan hands on uitvoering. Dat heeft ze meer dan waargemaakt. Binnen het Ministerie van EL&I heeft Freija dan ook een tamelijk uniek competentieprofiel, dat het best tot zijn recht komt in een vrije ruimte. Freija heeft een open en toegankelijke persoonlijkheid, met wie het prettig werken is.

ANTOINETTE MIDDELDORP

ANTOINETTE MIDDELDORP FACILITATOR / MINISTERY OF THE INTERIOR AND KINGDOM RELATIONS

Freija is bevlogen, zeer geangageerd en inspirerend in haar vakgebied en naar haar vakgenogen.
