Companies & People We’ve Worked With

“I recommend the service to anyone who is serious about establishing a welcoming culture for international professionals!”

Stephan Schäfer
Welcome Service Stadt Aachen

Lea and Nicole have always felt as part of our team rather than external service providers. They took the time to really learn what our needs are and proactively made suggestions on what would work for our organisation and audience, developed programs accordingly, but were equally honest in sharing what didn’t or wouldn’t work. As coordinator I’ve always felt comfortable completely handing a project over to them. I know I can rely on the job being done as agreed (and beyond).

Natalie De Filette

International House Leuven

We love the welcoming and open atmosphere that Lea, Nicole and the other trainers manage to create in the sessions every year and time and time again we hear nothing but praise from the participants.
For KU Leuven, this program is certainly an added value in our efforts to help international researchers integrate in Belgium together with their families and we highly recommend it to other companies who value the wellbeing of their international employees.

Caroline Gilbert

University of Leuven

Lea and Nicole understood our goals and needs and were able to give us valuable support in designing our offers. The fact that they were able to get all the relevant information for the three labour markets of Germany, Belgium and the Netherlands in one go was extraordinary. Apart from their professionalism, what impressed me most was that the two of them put their heart and soul into their work and do not see it as just another job, but want to help people/customers achieve their goals.
