CEO Power E2E, TT Lim:
"Our Team (40 people) had a very useful COMMUNICATION AND TEAMBUILDING experience using OPEN SPACE Technology, facilitated by Gijs van Wezel.
PowerE2E builds diverse B2B supply chain solutions for companies in China and across the S.E. Asian retail sector (Coca Cola, Unilever, Nestle). We grow very fast and we have many new young recruits. Communication and sharing experiences requires therefore our constant attention. In this context we have engaged Gijs van Wezel to introduce us to "Open Space". During a 2- day session, we have self-created an agenda of 17 topics of importance to staff and management. Group Participation and Personal Responsibility came naturally. PowerE2E will continue on this path and recommends Gijs van Wezel as an inspiring facilitator in a cross-cultural, multi-lingual environment. Now, 1 year later, Power E2E still does Open Space meetings at regular intervals for product development".

British Council Area Director Shanghai, Matt Burney:
"Ö. Preparing the agenda for our regional "China Strategy" meeting was a struggle: addressing every single of my hot topics, would not be relevant to a majority and that would bring the meeting-energy down. We needed a different format. Facilitation by Gijs gave us after 2 days 20 topics all worked out by our engaged team members".
