About Michel Geerligs

Michel is a Dutch entrepreneur, coach and human strategist with expertise in the areas of leadership and team effectiveness.

As a former Management and Business Consultant, Michel has more than 8 years of experience working in emerging markets in Africa, Asia and Latin America. During this time, he has partnered with 50+ enterprises in emerging markets to develop growth strategies and investment plans, and raise capital.

"I realised that high-performing companies are more committed to employee growth and leadership development"

During his time as a consultant, he realized that a key differentiating factor for high performing companies in emerging countries was their commitment to and investment in employee growth, leadership and team development. Michel noticed that insufficient attention to human capital and employee development blocks the emergence of great leaders and highly impactful businesses in frontier markets. Michel felt a strong urge to jump into this opportunity and follow his passion to unlock the potential of employees and teams.

Currently, Michel coaches leaders and advises teams and organisations to adopt empowering behaviours and systems to address bottlenecks to high performance.
