Christophe Degrez [CEO Eneco Belgium]

Elke Geraerts was able to inspire our company with a natural mix of academic insights and pragmatic declinations. She was able to find the right fit with our company culture in no time. By doing so she was able to connect with a broad audience. Her down to earth way of bringing the messages of the “CaliHero” and how to have the growth-mindset, really inspired me too. And on top of that she is a gifted speaker.

Geert Aelbrecht [HR director BESIX Group]
Elke and her team of Better Minds at Work are helping BESIX worldwide to create a company where Resilience is not only being preached, but also trained and supported. Elke delivers great insight in how managers and employees can focus on what truly matters, be attentive to detect those that need our help more and how everybody can become more resilient through balance and taking care of each other.
