Ria Verlinden ’51: trainer, coach and supervisor in systemic work, traditional wisdom and rituals. She is a citizen of the world and through her many years of international work she developed into a colourful woman.

She has a strong connection with Africa – the Mother Continent. For more than 30 years she works with women and guides them in their personal and professional growth. Today, as an Elder, she facilitates transition: from knowledge to wisdom, from knowing to being,

From being nice to be clear, warm and strong. Taking up leadership versus being controlling is a strong journey for all of us. And for herself.
