I normally never post recommendations on Linked In. Don’t like the ‘bla bla’ and the ‘o how wonderful he is’ attitude. For Koenraad Callaerts, I make an exception!

So if you are a non profit organization in need of good and solid advise there is only one person to call… Koen Callaerts!

Stefaan is a very result oriented colleague who combines helicopter view with running daily business, without losing track of targets. He is a great team player to have on board, very strong in analyses and calculations, communicating fluently in several languages with both blue and white collar collaborators.
— Geert Mels
ubeon guided us through a tunnel of questions, propositions and models to arrive at our three strategic drivers. The consultant guided us in an intensive, direct and no-nonsense way, and brought us to what we were looking for: the "social enterprises". Throughout the strategic study process, he kept our attention focused and there was strong group involvement. Equally positive is the feeling that together we have brought the strategic marketing study to a successful conclusion! And that with an expert who was not only able to say it well but also listened to the questions, doubts and concerns that could and could be raised from time to time.
Stephan is an inspiring professional and incredibly strong coach! Because of these qualities, I changed the way I do business now.

In a time spirit of more information and less concentration, it is crucial to get your message across clearly and visually.

I consider myself fortunate to have been able to share an intense period of learning with him and look forward to working on common projects.

We then invited Koen to our monthly lecture for EUMA - the European Network for Management Assistants where he gave a lecture in English on the Power of our Brain. Koen is very well prepared, knows his topics through and through and brings it with the necessary humor and interaction with the participants. Always a pleasure to work with him.

— Danny Hellinckx, NMI Strategy Consultants
Working with Koen was a pleasure... a positivist in heart and mind, Koen managed to pop-up an original approach to problems - thanks to a creative mind. Koen will never try to 'sell' anything to you - it's his proper belief in what he's doing, that cultivates the trust you put in him. And that trust is well-deserved. Hard working, with a love of the good things in life, make Koen an enjoyable, trust worthy colleague, eager to share, to learn and to get the result required.

In 2014 I attended the in-company training 'Getting Things Done' given by Koen Callaerts. I was pleasantly surprised by the way this training was given. Koen's enthusiasm is contagious. He teaches you how to efficiently deal with your tasks and time and uses many practical examples. You can immediately apply the tips and tricks. Koen takes the time to answer questions and gives you the opportunity to contact him after the training if you have any questions or encounter problems. I had already followed a time management course but 'Getting Things Done' was a real eye-opener and I highly recommend it.

The program was an wonderful experience, that really contributed to personal growth and gave strong additional tools to further enhance my coaching activities.

I can highly recommend him and his organization when you need a business trainer or consultant.

I worked with Eric Lauwers in Belgium to resolve a set of issues post a SAP implementation and vendor change. Eric served in the role as my project coordinator/project manager. We were faced with a substantial set of issues that ranged as simply as finding a place to sit with a telephone to avoiding a plant strike due to incorrect system data. Eric quickly helped to organize and document the outstanding issues. He made quality assessments and his suggestions showed an understanding of the technologies and processes needed to solve issues and run projects. In addition his multi language/cultural skills helped communications in the highly divers, multi-vendor and at time, extremely polar environment. With his help we were able to merge the IT-business-vendors together to generate a set of solutions. Mr. Lauwers has repeatedly demonstrated a solid technical understand of IT using best of skills knowledge in project management and project reporting. The General Motors environment is highly matrix-ed which includes multi vendors often in the same space. Mr. Lauwers does an excellent job of determining when to be lead and when to follow. He remains on good terms with all across the differing cultures and process. Based on Eric's work and previous experiences post the SAP activity, I recommend Mr. Lauwers a role for project manager in GM's European PeopleSoft project. Eric has worked to date on this role across GM's Europe PS role out. I enjoyed working with Eric and would recommend him to others.‚Äù Top qualities: Great results, Personable, High Integrity.

— Jean, Telindus Luxembourg
Eva De Smet
The result is indeterminate and open-ended. The way there is not fixed in advance. But from the overall picture that Koen uses, all aspects can be addressed. Not only the practical and obvious, but also and perhaps especially those things that you did not initially think of. Now as a guide, or coach, then as a mentor Koen helps you gain insight into what drives you, what keeps you going, and what makes you block. All this starting from and taking into account your own reality, without losing sight of the goal or perspective.

From a nearly grey past I do clearly recall the times I worked together with Stefaan in J&J ICT projects related to Sales, Ordering & Forecasting. Stefaan's starting point always was to put the user in the centre. From there the project problems and obstacles were tackled, ultimately resulting into customer's satisfaction and success. Knowhow, expertise and good relations were the keywords. It always was a pleasure to have him on any team.

His respectful, calm and confident attitude, his openness to people were one of the most valuable contributions to the "field'', and a source of enrichment and learning on both personal and professional levels.
— Anna Pensante
Stephan is an energetic and hard worker who is always curious to learn something new. He has a good sense of humor and to me he is someone who holds the highest standards of honesty and integrity.

An impressive building, beautifully decorated with all accommodations and then in the middle of a fantastic nature.
Learning together = learning faster (and especially in such a beautiful setting)! — Filip
Stephan and I met in his coaching sessions which had a great impact on my personal and private life. Using his great NLP knowledge, he guided me to look at myself and address limiting situations. As a result I saw spontaneous and very logical solutions. Stephan's natural approach put you at ease. You always leave his office feeling cheerful. Thank you Stephan!
— Roel Beckers, Deloitte
Heard some inspiring speeches and stories. Fascinating! Thanks for the initiative.

What I still find special is that I have the impression that I have created my own idiosyncratic Mindscaping and "not by the book" and I like that too, suits my rebellious undercurrent.

An acquisition, the integration of a new product line into our existing program, a new brand architecture that had to be implemented, the need for restyling and reorienting our business... In short, we were facing an enormous challenge with short deadlines. In order to work quickly and professionally, we asked ubeon to assist us. Result: in barely nine months' time, ubeon provided us with a load of marketing strategy power food that will enable us to grow in the next five years! Moreover, it was an enriching experience for our super-enthusiastic and motivated team. Definitely a recommendation (but not for my competitors please!)

Stephan was my regular trainer, both during the Systemic NLP Practitioner, and the Systemic NLP Master Practitioner training. He always succeeded in creating a safe environment with respect for everyone's personality, which allowed you to go through your own discovery journey in full confidence. His knowledge of systems thinking and experience as a business coach always gave the extra insights that put you, as a consultant, one step further on your way.
— Katrien De Hert, Human to Human
Hans is one of the most professional and devoted person I've had the chance to meet in my career. Always listening and wisely advising his colleagues, he never gives up and puts a lot of energy in bringing out the best in people. I will never thank him enough for the things I learned while working for him.
— Marc Jongen
Dear Steff, I want to thank you for the training. I have grown as a person as I wanted to grow. Thanks to all the exercises given to me by you.

Very nice location: beautiful decor, very friendly reception. Good luck!

I am particularly impressed with the simplicity of this guidance. Koen uses the power of the present creativity and solution orientation of both your conscious and unconscious mind. I started the session with a heavy feeling on my stomach. I was facing a challenge that, before the session, was particularly stressful for me. After the session, I was in a kind of transition for another half day. Bit confused, you might say. After that confusion came the clearing and the power.
— Emilie Depuydt, Happy Coach
Koen is a generalist at heart and a coach-cracker. What is the result of this combination? That the joker (is what he is) is always one step ahead of you: he anticipates what is and what is to come without losing sight of the conversation. He steps into your story with you and makes sure you dare to take the next step.
— Pieterjan Robijn
Now, over five years later, I can only be thankful for all the time and effort he puts into people's development (including myself). I've heard him say to someone he is a missionary of sorts, but that would be a detriment to his true gift: the gift of inspiration and creativity. I admire him for his ability to learn and adapt. I certainly respect him as a business person and most of all, I love him as a friend.

Stephan is an excellent facilitator and coach in ubeon meetings with associates and partners. He uses the Disney Imagineering method in a very useful way. He has a perfect command of it, so the creative process within the team and the build-up from dream to realization of proposals goes very smoothly. In my opinion, the Disney Imagineering and Appreciate Inquiry methods are very close to each other and Stephan's use of them can bring out the strengths and ambitions within the ubeon group even more clearly.

When, a few years ago, we at BT were looking for a training course that could help our employees be more aware and efficient with their tasks and time, we automatically ended up with the "Getting Things Done" course given by Koen Callaerts. Koen went further than just passing on the theory and tips & tricks. He was very good at sensing and responding to the frustrations and challenges that are so typical of a large multinational. The great thing about this training is that you also get the space to get to work immediately during the training and apply a number of principles to your way of working. Our staff also saw the added value of this training since we had to book several sessions. The success behind this training is Koen, who knows how to combine theoretical knowledge with his practical experience as an employee and trainer.
— Kathleen Maes, BT
HR-background, Helena is perfectly able to translate business & organization into what practically works for her clients! Well done!

How much we all still need to learn around change....
Valérie de Groote
I did a handful of coaching sessions with Stephan some months ago. Since that time (as well as during) I have been actively using and reflecting upon the techniques he has shown me to achieve my personal and professional goals. He showed me how to act upon my dreams, and generate the future that I want. Stephan's 1:1 coaching sessions have changed the way in which I manage my career resulting in a great performance and increased personal energy.
— Valérie de Groote
I have seen quite some speakers in my life but rarely have I seen someone who can captivate an audience like Hans can. He's a pro to say the least. And above all, he's entertaining.

This NLP training has given me a different perspective and my life structure will change. A big thank you!

Struggled to get in at first but the reward was great! Beautiful spaces, delicious tea and warm welcome!
At the very beginning of my trial session I felt included in the group, it seemed like it was my tenth session.
— Paul Larmuseau, Wouters
Stefaan and colleagues, thank you for your logistical contribution a this beautiful, educational, volunteer day!
Calm, pleasant, customized service. Listening to improve and they did, thank you!
Bob, thanks for the clear exposition.

I still love coming back!
Very educational! — Nele
An inspiring meeting. To explore the boundaries of space (and learning) and beyond.... And all that in a rustic and charming farm...
The seven CPS sessions I participated in made a real difference to myself and to my work as a director at Pfizer.

Stephan is an excellent trainer and has an eye for not only professional but also personal development of his clients. He enables you to transcend yourself on different levels and provides you with the necessary resources to (continue to) grow. Besides the NLP Practioner and Master class, the training "Deep trance" is highly recommended to master conversational hypnosis techniques and the Milton model. Once you have followed this master class, you will not want anything else.
— Jonathan Debilde, Verwarmslimmer
Thank you very much for the nice welcome!
In December 2018, I enjoyed a People Management training course (!) that Koen delivered. Not a traditional lecture by the book or with a fixed slide show, rather a journey through the subject in function of the questions, interests and expectations of the participants. Very practical, interactive, humorous, sometimes confrontational but above all useful. One of the few training courses that really takes you with it. Top!
— Erik Wollaert
Fantastic to see how our KAHO students are deployed.
— J. Diver, KAHO
Stephan is a very good team coach and is concerned with the well-being of each individual team member. He is dedicated and achieves goals by positively influencing others. As a personal coach Stephan is a good listener and shares valuable insights in people behaviour and interaction.
— Vincent Panis, JCI - Junior Chamber International
A thorough training given by three fantastic coaches. NLP is not only applicable at work but also in daily communication with clients and people in your immediate environment. Highly recommended!
— Daisy Ovaere
Beautiful, different and on (our) human scale!
Beautiful location, incredibly enthusiastic associates and staff, an interesting presentation.
Bart De Sutter
Guy is an excellent all-round manager, agile and creative. He is able to set a clear vision and give direction to almost any type of business. Not only will he put an ambitious strategy and stretched objectives for the area he manages, but thanks to his good people management, coaching, expertise and discipline Guy will ensure the team delivers on the promise. And last but not least, it is good fun working with him.
— Bart De Sutter, Euroclear
The NLP practitioner is a training that gave me a different view and will structurally change my life. A big thank you!
Glad to see all those familiar faces and some new ones again and this in a "vree weis" setting... great location!

I followed a coaching exercise with Stephan and the result was outstanding. Stephan takes the time to coach you and to coach your process. The experience was worthwhile!

Peter asked the right eye-opening questions to help me make up my mind about my work, and provided useful tools and exercises to make me consider and feel what is important for me. He's an effective and friendly coach.

Steff, I actually don't know quite what to say. Consciously & subconsciously you have taught me so much!!! This is not goodbye but the beginning of... See you soon.
— Thekla Sioen, Huys Sioen
Stephan’s initiative, ubeon, is a remarkable and unique initiative that perfectly demonstrates how you can work together and build up a valuable offer with a variety of business experts. The very respectful way in which he brings all this expertise together and the vision behind the whole project are a nice example of his leadership skills.
— Peter Blokland, BYAZ BV
Super happy to have made it this far. The experience rivals the past cedar experience! Keep up the good work & good luck!
The training 'Effective Negotiation' provides you with tools that you can use every day in your job and even in your private life. Helena succeeds in bundling the essence in a concise and powerful way and in presenting it in an understandable way. You acquire a number of essential insights that give you the opportunity to lift your professional functioning to a higher level. In short: highly recommended!

I also thought it was a very successful training. The working points are already on the agenda for the next team meeting.

"Good is good enough" is really a good recommendation. You don't have to be an educator or caregiver to do that.
— Anonymous participant
As a consultant and interim manager, I often experienced how challenging but important communication within organizations can be. NLP really helped me to further improve my communication skills. And I really doubt whether the NLP-training would have been as effective from another trainer than from Stephan. Moreover, I have the pleasure to know Stephan in other roles than the one of trainer and I always admire how he uses his NLP exerptise in practice. Always with respect and yet very effectively.
— Jean Vercruysse
Listened to your engaging presentation with a smile. Thank you very much, I enjoyed it.

A warm welcome in a fantastic square farmhouse! I am already looking forward to another inspiring evening with ubeon.
Geert Van den Steen
Stephan, thank you for giving what you have! I wish you can continue to draw energy from what you accomplish here with NLP for a long time to come, because, it makes so many people richer, and that makes all the difference.
— Geert Van den Steen
A very pleasant first meeting with the entire ubeon team.
Ideal place for an out-of-the-box session.
I am working with Stefaan since one year. Stefaan has, from my obsevations, a high level of profesionnalism. His core competency in Supply Chain Management is an asset for the companies he is working for. In addition, Stefaan has a real international profile: He speaks English, French, German, Portugish and Flemish and he was living in Sri Lanka for 4 years. His style is very result oriented, committed, loyal and acts as a team player. On the other side Stefaan has a strong character. It is valuable and enjoyable to have in a team a person like Stefaan.
