In memoriam Margriet Schut'Living and working from your strengths sets you free.' To our sadness, our sparkling colleague Margriet Schut has passed away. Margriet has been part of our company for almost 25 years. She focused on coaching and became a creative and always inquisitive expert in her field. In her own unique and decisive way, she supported others to discover and develop their talents. We regularly meet people who remember Margriet as their coach and cherish her insights.
