    Gerrit Sarens, CEO & Founder of Ambits
  • “When I was 18, I always thought I would run out of questions at 40. Nothing could be further from the truth. I have more questions now than ever before. Thanks to mentoring, however, this causes me much less stress. Thanks to the advice of mentor Bart Gardeyn, I dare to use my rights more than before and tackle difficult things instead of avoiding them.“

    • Mike
    • Founder
  • “My mentor brought structure and coat hooks and, most importantly, gave me back my self-confidence. I also learned how to use my strengths even more. In addition, thanks to the mentoring, I also learned to understand the dynamics of the corporate system around me and to accept what I did and did not have control over.“

    • Mireille
  • “My mentor gave me tools to learn to look at the broader picture, name difficult issues, start a conversation about them, and let go of things you can't control. My mentor was very approachable. It never felt forced.“

    • Petra
  • “It's great to have a mentor, but it's you who has to change“

    • Dieter
    • Founder and managing partner
  • “People I struggled with saw that I acted with more confidence“

    • Ann
    • IT Director
  • “Experience is the best school, but also where you take the most bruises“

    • Jürgen
    • CEO
  • “What happened is logic. I tried to develop a great technical expert into a leader. Mentoring helped him to understand what he needed to develop to get there, and he felt better continuing on an expert path.“

    • Philippe
    • CEO
  • “My mentoring project via Ambits was a great experience. It was a project that gave me insights into several parts of my job and personality. A well-experienced mentor guided me to reach the goals we defined together. My mentor, as an ‘outsider,’ was able to help me cope with the issues I ran into within my organization. The actions were defined on both a personal and professional level. We had regular follow-up meetings, both remote and in person. My mentor was a skilled and really enjoyable person. I was always looking forward to our interactions, and I appreciated the time and effort he took to help me.“

    • Bart
    • Service Delivery Manager
  • “I did this mentorship during a very challenging period in my job and in a changing company, which was hard and caused a lot of setbacks. Jan supported me a lot during this period with sincere kindness and challenged me to start thinking differently, in which he succeeded. I feel I have grown a lot because of his expertise and way of conduct.“

    • Sally
    • EMEA manager
  • “Ik heb deze mentoring gedaan in een zeer uitdagende periode in mijn werk en in een sterk veranderend bedrijf, wat zwaar was en veel tegenslagen veroorzaakte. Mentor Jan heeft me in deze periode veel gesteund met oprechte vriendelijkheid en me uitgedaagd om anders te gaan denken, waarin hij is geslaagd. Ik ben persoonlijk erg gegroeid door zijn expertise en manier van werken.“
