Introducing Clyde Echteld

“Caminante, no hay camino. Se hace camino al andar”
Joan Manuel Serrat

My name is Clyde Echteld. I was born in Surinam, South-America, in 1969. At the age of five, I moved with my parents and siblings to The Netherlands.

Amsterdam is the city where I studied and lived during the period 1989-2013. Between June 2013 and June 2017, I lived and worked in the beautiful city of Nairobi, Kenya. Since June 2017, I travel back and forth between Amsterdam and Nairobi.

I have a Master’s in Political Science (University of Amsterdam) and an Executive Master’s in Public Management (TIAS Business School). These Masters were completed with certifications in the areas of:

  • Executive Coaching
  • Career Coaching
  • Communication Skills Training
  • Middle Management
  • Personnel Management
  • Systemic Work, and
  • Open Space Technology.

My intention is to create safe and productive atmospheres within organizations, which in turn contribute to a long and vital stay of staff in organizations. Following this intention, I focus on the professional development of senior-staff, managers, and executives within multinational settings, on:

  • how they manage others;
  • how they manage their careers;
  • how they negotiate;
  • how they network;
  • how they manage their communication;
  • how they manage their busy schedules, and
  • how well they know and manage themselves.
