Coaching for companies
that like to keep things simple.

We believe in the power of high-quality coaching. And in the power of human connection.
These 2 together can have a great impact on people: increased happiness in and outside of work,  better mental health, and support in reaching their full potential. 


We don't have to tell your that your companies potential is determined by your peoples fulfilled potential and well-being. There is more than one reason why you want your employees feel happy and healthy. Coaching can support people with many things: Improved mental health, identifying strengths & achieving goals, simply getting to know themselves better, and feeling empowered in life and work to reach their full potential.

A strong coaching culture benefits your company in many ways, like increased productivity, employee engagement and employee retention. There is a lot of research-based evidence and numbers to show that. But we are not here to convince you. We would rather have a chat with you to see if and how coaching can help you and/or your company than to throw some number at you.

Nowadays there are a lot of all-tech based coaching solutions out there. That's great! But not what we offer. We don't want the technology to be leading and we don't want you to pay for technology. Because we believe the impact of coaching is determined by:

1. The quality of the coach

2.  The connection with the client

3. How engaged a client is in their process.

So we like to make things HUMAN and SIMPLE. With the best coaches.

It does not matter to us if you need a coach for only one person or a dozen, whether your company has 5 or 5000 employees, whether you need a coach for any of your employees, your teams, your managers or your CEO. 

We can offer high-quality coaching and the best match for your employees.

You want your people to have ownership over whom they work with. People know best what they need. That is why we always have a personal approach and touch when we match people with coaches.

Speeddate your coach

When there are multiple people looking to experience coaching a speeddate is one of our favorite and most efficient ways to match  people with their best match.

In one hour 4-7 people can not only meet up to 5 coaches. They will already learn a lot about themselves and their question. And leave inspired to take things to the next level.

This video shows one of our live events but we also create these online, via Zoom. Just as effective and fun.

About us
A network of over 300+ internationally certified coaches that get it.

We have such a great and strong global network of professional and certifiedcoaches!

Each Simply Start coach is well vetted. Many of our coaches are Co-Active trained, all are ICF certified. Co-Active is recognized as the most rigorous and respected coach training and certification in the industry. We also work with coaches that are certified ORSC (Organization and relationship Systems Coaching) which is considered one of the most effective systems and team coaching models. Besides all that all our coaches have their own expertise like mental health and mental fitness, diversity and inclusion, Agile teams and leadership tools.

They understand your companies and employees needs because they are or have been part of organizations themselves, often in leadership roles and as a coach they now work with start-ups, scale-ups and corporates on a daily basis. Across every level of an orgnization. 

Our coaches are connected with their peers from all over the world and supported in their continuous development, so that they are always up-to date with what is new and what's important. They enjoy being part of the strong and professional network Simply Start offers because we stand strong in our mission and make learning fun.

That is why we are able to offer the best coaches, always!


We understand the complexities your company has to navigate. 


We don't stay at the surface.


We make sure people own their growth.


We dare to ask the uncomfortable questions.

"I walked in completely empty en walked out bursting with ideas and inspiration. I definitely felt a match with some coaches. Also when I did not feel a match it thought me a lot about what I am Looking for in a coach."

Amber (participant Speeddate your coach Amsterdam)

"Manon is very professional. She quickly analyzes a situation and recommends the right coach to grow your career or business. I recommend working with her when you want fast high quality results." 

Ilona Dielis (1-on-1 matching)


Coaching has been a big part of my life. During my whole career I benefited a lot from coaching. A lot more than from the many (leadership development) courses I took.  But I also have had quite some coaching experienced that did not give me what I was looking for. That is why I stand so strongly for having people take ownership over whom they work with.

Over the years I connected many people to find their perfect coach, either 1-on-1 or via Speeddates. And now via Simply Start we can bring high-quality coaching to even more companies. All over the world. No matter what size and what location.

We understand what people need, we understand what companies and human connection always  comes first in all that we do.
