Jorn Wolfs

"An experience that really rocked my world. This programme gave me insights into parts of myself I did not understand, or that I was not aware of. The methods used and exercises performed during this programme might at times seem odd, but are highly effective and most of the time fun to do (which is what co-creating is also all about!)"

Gerwin Dekkers
Project Manager Tax & ICT, Tax Model

"PAW masters the art of supporting teams to really shift behaviour. They now how to create the circumstances for change to happen in a way that it actually sticks.
