TheMove focuses on:

innovation, leadership, sales

We help companies through consulting, training, workshops, one-on-one, executive coachings, key notes, co-workings.


Why do we do what we do?

Because we are deeply convinced that many people - company owners, leaders, suppliers, employees, stakeholders - yearn for a radical different form of cooperation in organizations. A distinct form of cooperation which uses the potential of the people and ignite the fire for tasks, roles and the organization itself. We call this organization "company 9.0“. Making people great, this is what we passionately support.
