Client Testimonials

  1. The SSPEED Center at Rice University retained Henk Mooiweer from Innovenate at a critical point in the implementation of a non-structural flood control concept involving buying and selling ecological services. Henk has provided excellent assistance in crystalizing key ideas into a workable and implementable format that is more easily understood by and communicated to the key audience. He has helped us immensely in a short time at a reasonable cost.

  2. Henk is extraordinary in his ability to articulate creativity and innovation as a person, and also knows how to draw this type of thinking out of each individual in a room. His facilitation is fast paced, comprehensive, inclusive, and results in simplified understandings of opportunities and has been critical to develop prioritization and action. Id recommend Henk for your most challenging and complex facilitation needs, and other services that create and require extraordinary team work, and results in appropriate action. April 2016

  1. The TCX team and concept are fortunate that Henk materialized and engaged when he did – in a very short time, his thinking, process and facilitation inspired and enabled the transition from a well- developed, bold idea (TCX), to a plan of action with audacious goals needed to make TCX a reality. In a remarkably organic and collaborative fashion, he recommended and facilitated a series of opportunistic small and large group dialogues over several months in which the team and others challenged the TCX idea, identified assumptions, risks and opportunities. These activities were not only critical to ground truth the TCX, but also to coalesce the larger community around it – both functions that will be critical to our success. This process also produced a working-draft, runway-level action plan, complete with timeline, actionable tasks, audacious goals and identifiable, measurable results Throughout the process, Henk produced slide decks that articulated the rapidly maturing goals and action plan, accurately, concisely and simply. This has not only facilitated the process, it has accelerated it and moved us quickly toward making TCX a reality. Henk holds our greatest appreciation and highest regards May 2016

  2. Henk was an excellent partner; good listener, always ready to push back on ideas, giving sound and constructive feedback, able to accept ideas not his own, and stand up when he felt his game plan was solid. March 2016

  1. Applied Ecological Services (AES) hired Dr. Henk Mooiweer to provide training on the role innovation has in providing higher value to our customers. Henk did a fantastic job of presenting this training to over 50 leaders in our company and the feedback was universally positive. We were provided with several tools and interactive work sessions that were both practical and effective. Henk has a very special talent in being able to connect with his audience both in person and virtually. It is clear that he has a very high level of expertise in this area. This was a very good investment for our company. September 2016
  2. Thank you for your outstanding innovation plan and strategy for KBRwyle. I have found the frame breaking training to be personally inspiring and thought provoking and have seen our staff put the training to use immediately to implement new ideas and approaches to technical and management problems. Your practical approach makes the process for innovation actionable and I believe we will see significant value as we work toward a new culture of support for innovation. I look forward to working with you to continue the implementation with our entire team. April 2017

  1. Regarding your excellent facilitation during AES’s planning meeting in Chicago: AES hired Innovenate to facilitate our strategic planning meeting. We brought together several of our company leaders for a 2-day workshop to review our current business and map the path forward for the future. Feedback from the attendees was unanimously very positive. Dr. Henk Mooiweer is truly an expert facilitator and kept the meetings moving at a fast pace which kept everyone energized and engaged. We came out of the meeting with a pragmatic strategy map for the organization going forward. The meeting has set the stage for implementing action plans tied to the strategy map for the current year and beyond. The investment in the meeting was greatly enhanced by Henk’s expert facilitation, and was a great investment. Thank you Henk.” We have made pretty good progress on the action plans and we look forward to continuing our relationship with you. April 2017

  1. Henk does a wonderful job of moving attendees through a measured but fast paced process of thinking together as a individuals and building supportive collaborative teams. The roadmap provided by the 1-2 day long sessions have been most helpful for guiding our company forward. March 2018
  1. Henk is a meeting miracle worker. Imagine these conditions: An impossibly big goal. Not enough time allocated for the meeting to achieve it. Last minute changes in the speakers. Twice as many people registering than the event was designed for -- 90 instead of 40 people! Mission impossible? Not for Henk. He jumped right into understanding what we needed, was flexible with our changing needs, and designed and executed the perfect meeting. It got to real action items -- and rave reviews from the participants September 2018
