My name is Ilja van Roon and I help people live and lead with more purpose, vitality and resilience.

I want my clients to live and lead from their core. This allows them to be happier and healthier and have more rewarding relationships and careers. I also want my clients to enjoy the freedom to explore at their own pace. That is why my sessions last either half a day or a full day.

Clients say that I am present, incisive, and gentle. I listen deeply and get to the core of the matter. My approach is eclectic and reflects my own professional journey of discovery that began 20 years ago. I love to learn and continuously invest in my own development.

In addition, I enjoy a successful career as a business writer, which sees me work personally with CEOs of blue-chip firms and government ministers around issues of leadership, change and sustainability.

I am 43 years old, married and I have four children.
