Simon's main skill is to be 'invisible', but still being present in helping groups to harvest results

I know Simon Koolwijk as a learning, facilitation and evaluation expert in Train the Trainer programs and Curriculum Development. He assisted in setting up a Trainers Team for a multiyear program in 6 countries in the Western Balkans. Staff from the NGO in the Netherlands as well as local staff from the NGOs from the 6 countries were trained. I also know Simon Koolwijk as a facilitator in Strategy Processes, in which his in my opinion important main skill is to be ‘invisible’, and yet has the ability to harvest a lot of results and make people at ease and comfortable in the interaction.
