Jan De Sutter
Originally a nerd (I studied engineering and informatics) I realised only later that soft skills are far more important than technical knowledge - or just being smart - to have a good and fulfilling career. Throughout my professional life I was involved hands-on in leading and managing smaller and large teams, at various levels of hierarchy. Since 2013 I have been working as an independent performance coach, and in that capacity I have helped literally thousands of people succeed the EPSO exams, the competitions that are organised on behalf of the EU institutions to select new staff. I am a trainer and coach with wide knowledge of the public and private sectors. I have also worked as an EU official and served on EPSO assessment boards, including as a president. I have obtained input from trainers, human resources staff and other managers in both private and public sector to make sure this masterclass deploys the widest and most up-to-date knowledge.
|"I had considerable interactions with Jan, and I am extremely honoured and happy to recommend this high level professional and entrepreneur with exceptional and high level standard's experience, preparation and passion for his work. I believe that his international working experience including over 30 years of experience management and leadership roles in the military, Belgian and European public sector have made of him, an excellent mentor, coach and trainer. As a result, any professional in the need to improve performances at any stage of career would benefit from his exceptional skills both as strong communicator and teacher. Finally, any academic or non-academic training programmes aimed at training national officials, managers, job seekers and other professionals from relevant institutions would strongly benefit from his expertise."|
