Erik Meijer (Enschede 1958), graduated Lawschool at the university of Amsterdam and started a traineeship at the Amro Bank shortly after. Erik took his leave after a career of 32 years and in 2015 he established Erik Meijer Consulting. Throughout his time with ABN AMRO Bank he almost continuously worked in commercial management positions: in the branch network (branch and district managing director) as well as at the main office (change manager and regional managing director Special Credits). People and Change Management continued to be his major themes and the primary focus throughout his career. During his last two years at ABN AMRO, Erik worked as ‘in house coach’ and national coordinator regarding sustainable development.
Within his own practice Erik guides his clients in the broadest sense of the term. He alternately operates as coach, advisor, mirror or sounding board. Erik prefers to work with metaphors, humor and a little bit of theater. “In which theater do you perform right now, who is your audience and do you still receive any applause?” is a very well known saying of him.
Consultations take place outside as much as possible, while wandering through nature. This allows him to “confront in a cathartic way, with power, color and playfulness.” For Erik, this is an experienced and approved method to build a pleasant working relationship, which leads to happy and satisfied clients.
Erik has been a partner at ABC Business Coaches since 2016.
