Hi,

I’m Michel Daenen

I was born and raised in the Netherlands. But that did not automatically enable me to understand Dutch culture. Only after I had traveled and lived abroad I discovered the typical things about my home country. I am a sociologist and have been teaching and coaching people from all walks of life for more than 25 years. I love to support newcomers to understand the things that help them to live and work happily in The Netherlands.  

 

My husband's company sent us here. I stopped everything back home. Suddenly I was fulltime housemom. The sessions with Michel really got me started. I can highly recommend it to anyone. He is very helpful. He understood my situation and he gave good advice.

I’ve learned that the process that we’re in right now is common for everybody who goes through this experience. We were struggling. Clarifying course. It had a great impact. We're truly doing much better now.

I did not know anything about Holland. My new boss offered me to do this course. I followed it in India. It was very nice. Then I relocated to Rotterdam. It really helped me. I could see things in real life now that I learned online. Very helpful.
