Louis Smit Consultancy: experience yields quick results

For over thirty years I have been working in communications, marketing and management, carrying out assignments both for government agencies and businesses, both in The Netherlands and abroad.

As I want to put my experience to good use by helping those in less fortunate circumstances, I focus on small and medium-sized enterprises specifically in emerging and developing countries. Also, I provide consultancy services to government agencies and NGOs involved in promoting better conditions in business and personal life.

"Experience yields quick results," said the Russian carpenter when I admiringly watched how he put a garden house together in one afternoon.

My specialty is finding short-term practical solutions to marketing, communication and business challenges.

> My track record and my proficiency in several world languages have proven to be advantageous in running international projects.

> My advice is tailor-made and respects the style and culture of the organization. In addition to consultancy, I offer workshops and coaching in communication and marketing skills.

> Point of departure is the self-analysis of the organization asking for assistance. They present their view of the problem and make suggestions for a solution themselves. I then use my experience to find the problem that lies beneath. We work on this together.

> Finally, I present my solutions contained in a compact plan of action with a time line. In some cases this action plan can be available after a fortnight visit.
