Testimonies from Clients

The Board and staff of IFPD are extremely grateful to Koenraad and Smruti for having led us through a revision of the Foundation’s strategy and establishing the basis for a renewed 5-year strategic plan. Both have been very forthcoming, easy-going, personalities and it is a pleasure to work with them. Their extensive experience with field work in many countries, as well as their competence as consultants, brought much insight into our discussions. All participants in our ‘retreat’ have learned much from them through their leadership and guidance in a challenging exercise. We highly recommend these two consultants to any organisation in need of revising their strategy or projects.
— Christine Magistretti-Naville, chair of the Board of IFPD
Almost all participants in this annual Charter4Change meeting found it highly productive. To a good extent, the credit for that goes to your facilitation skills. It was more than an ‘assignment’ for you. Your passion about the localisation process ensured that, throughout the meeting, local voices got heard and their concerns incorporated in the plan.

On behalf of the MEAL unit in IOM Turkey, we would like to thank you for the support and guidance you gave us during the time we worked together. We learned a lot during the scoping mission from the constructive feedback you gave us, especially about our accountability mechanisms to affected populations (AAP). We will continue to reflect the feedback and improve the quality of our AAP systems.

I wanted to thank you for providing us with an open atmosphere that was conducive to different types of exchange. You brought out positive thoughts/reflections from many of us. The calm and serenity with which you approached the challenging/hurtful conversations was desperately needed. I only regret that we did not have an additional day to get through the muddy waters!

I have very much appreciated your ‘savoir être’. You reminded me of where I am and where I would like to go. You reawakened my courage and confidence that I can and will find my way and that I will have to go for it!
