"Sophie's masterclass “Growth through Collaboration” provides key insights into the different types of strategic alliances — along with the tools on how to build and form them. This is highly relevant and essential to European companies relying on these alliances to unlock new international markets such as the US.

"Sophie explains during the Masterclass 'Growth through Collaboration' how by building alliances you can reduce costs,  foster innovation, or go faster to market. It became clear how trust, shared vision, long-term commitment, and flexibility are key ingredients for success. Because of the use cases, examples, and clear framework, I highly recommend this masterclass. 1 + 1 is more than 2!

"I attended Sophie’s workshop ‘How to Successfully Enter a New Market’. We learned the crucial steps to build a powerful expansion strategy: from market assessment to strategic positioning, from choosing the right market entry mode to implementing your strategy. Sophie clearly showed her expertise and engaged the audience with stories and examples. The combination of having a clear framework and applying that to our business case was extremely powerful. What a fantastic experience!"

Not only was it fun and engaging, it also gave me a clear overview of the opportunities and challenges I was about to face. I truly value her international business experience and strong local network"
