In recent years, ConsultingKids has worked on 80 different issues worldwide. We have done this with around 4,000 children. Over the past four years, the Netherlands has welcomed new junior consultants, who have learned 20,000 skills together. We have received around 35,000 ideas from them.
And we have translated this back to 1,200 refreshing and inspiring solutions to these issues.
Naturally, each client has its own context. But in the meantime we have also collected good insights on a number of transcending themes. In the coming year we would like to share these ideas with you. The main goal is to do what we at ConsultingKids stand for: offering refreshing solutions to adult issues, while at the same time teaching children something. We believe that from sharing our knowledge and ideas, we make the Netherlands a little better and more fun and that we also do justice to the children who are now junior consultants of ConsultingKids, and their ideas, (even more)!
Parts of our highlights
In the coming year we will inspire you in a series of articles with the ideas of children and the advice we have given in recent years. We make a distinction between our clients in the public and private sectors. Also because we notice that both need reflection and inspiring ideas from children in different areas. The themes below are not exhaustive. Curious as to whether we have inspiring ideas for your issues? Contact Roos or Ilse.
