Esther provides training and workshops both in the Netherlands and abroad. Did you know that since 2004 Esther has initiated and organised more than 30 social ‘trade fairs’ for various local councils in the Netherlands? And, that she has even coached organisations and companies in Sweden in preparing their own successful social trade fairs?
Rabobank Tilburg e.o.: "The Goede Zaken workshop is a perfect preparation for a social trade fair. Participants noticeable score better and are more successful at identifying companies to connect with."
Rabobank Markiezaat: "We can look back upon an excellent workshop for social organisations. For some it came as a real eye opener, because they quickly found out that yes, they do actually have quite a bit to offer a company. In addition, people learn to really 'look within’ to formulate an interesting question or counter offer to put to a company."
Mirjam de Graaf, Communication and Cooperation staff member at Rabobank Hilversum:
“We set up the Maarssen Trade Fair together with Esther. Esther is a driven woman who knows precisely what she wants and, with respect for the others involved, ensures the mutual goals are achieved. Social commitment comes natural to her. Together we have already detailed quite a number of Rabobank initiatives. The Maarssen Trade Fair was followed by the Breukelen and Hilversum Trade Fair. The most recent examples of social commitment are the Rabobank Knowledge Cafés in Hilversum. Immensely inspiring!”
