“I took part in a Dutch cultural awareness class with Arielle at the end of 2011 and was amazed at how much material we covered in the space of an afternoon. Arielle is very friendly and personable and immediately put me at ease in the group. She is also a great listener which allowed her to really customise the content to meet participant expectations using a variety of interactive teaching methods. The class certainly exceeded my personal expectations and I would not hesitate to recommend Arielle for her cultural facilitation skills.” -Anthea Bull, HR Business Partner at Philips
