Niño is guiding our management team members in the development of their (personal) leadership development. He is a sharp and sensitive coach and guide, who is very connecting and therefore helps to gain insights with which colleagues and the organisation can move forward. He communicates without judgment, is curious, interested and facilitating. And he brings the necessary humor to his trainings and interventions. In addition to his expertise as a facilitator, he also has the talent to design effective learning journeys, and to remain flexible during the implementation. What is needed or requires attention comes first. And that has an impact on the colleagues, the team and our organisation.

Niño is an amazing Leadership trainer and coach. He always managed to inspire not only his participants in training, but also me at great levels! I’ve very much enjoyed working with him, he always brings out the best in people! He is smart and empathetic. Facilitating Leadership Journeys is one of his strong suits but he is also very strong in creating learning content on a very high level.
