FASTGROWTH WORKSHOPS & MASTERMINDS
Monthly Executive Boards
A business strategy workshop where members are trained using formal workbooks in key areas of business. This forces concentration on specific parts of their company. Members will analyse, in depth, the areas where their business is performing well or badly.
A mastermind where members get the opportunity to present a current business scenario / situation to their peers. The group will then give advice and feedback based on their experience. Members benefit from the experience of others. This process ensures that all options have been developed and critical mistakes are avoided early. Meetings are inspiring, helpful, uplifting, motivating, advising.
Group members are business executives from non-competing industries that have the knowledge and skills to help solve big business challenges. In a trusted and confidential setting, members grapple with the issues that can make or break a business. Members will share seasoned advice and expertise providing actionable suggestions and solutions that will empower the achievement of goals in business and personal life. Advice, ideas and suggestions flow freely in this confidential environment. The honest, unbiased feedback from board members who face similar problems and issues, helps to crystallize business vision and give confidence that decisions made are well researched and appropriate.
Members are not alone! Members can take advantage of a monthly one-to-one coaching/mentoring session with a highly experienced coach. Here, members celebrate successes, examine opportunities or air concerns. The focus is on developing strategy and tactics together.
Over the past 10 years, The Alpha GOLD™ strategic process has been used to create many successful, profitable business. Members have become highly motivated, focused and confident in achieving business and personal goals.

Work with our business coaching tools to narrow your focus!
Having peers who hold you accountable for your decisions and actions is the most productive way to create change. The Alpha Group meetings are a place where CEO’s can turn to someone who understands the challenges they are facing, will always give you an unbiased opinion which in turn could save you so much time and money.
The goal of most companies is to increase the market value of your company and to become successful not right away sometimes. However, challenges and uncertainty are always part of long-term expansion and growth. There are times when, like many others, you are unclear about the best way to proceed, intermittently have self-doubt, and occasionally lack the tools and techniques for the tasks you are facing.
Because your peers are equal and are also business owners who are not competitors, you’ll respect their opinions and trust their own experience, unlike your relationship with others, you can’t make excuses with your peers. They know better and you know they know better. It’s why we know that peer groups work so well and why CEO’s who really want to grow and develop turn to The Alpha Groups, they seek accountability, and someone to hold them to the promised that they make, so they can reach the potential they desire.

Dutch from origin, French by life-adoption, citizen of the world. 51 years young, a beautiful wife and gremlin french bulldog. I live in France right between Rouen and Paris in Normandy.
After having served as a lifeguard and a swimming teacher at the local swimming pools during his puberty, Gijs did his Law studies at the Tilburg University in the Netherlands and worked at the same time as a Crewtrainer and Floor (shift) Manager at McDonald’s restaurants in Oosterhout and Geldermalsen.
At 24 years of age Gijs owned and managed a Ballroom Dancing School together with his wife and then opened two fitness clubs. In total a team of 90 employees worked at the different sites. Franchise holders for FitCare Wellness Clubs Nederland and LesMills Group Fitness.
When offered the opportunity of a buy-out, they took it, and moved to France to pursue life’s happiness and surprises.
As a law graduate, specializing in real estate law and business law, Gijs decided to work on the fun side of real estate : First an agent, then a licensed estate agent, two offices and managing a network of 35 independent agents throughout France, focusing on the incoming foreign buyer and investor.
Gijs picked up his studies in Paris at the ESSEC business school and the CNAM/ICH (L’institut de droit et d’économie appliqués à l’immobilier / The Institute of Law and Economics applied to Real Estate) and became a certified surveyor and set up his own Surveyor business in Rouen and Paris.

At the invitation of the High Court he was certified as a sworn Court-Mediator, intervening in long drag-out court cases (Médiateur de Justice).
It is excellent for your ego to have a great track record but what you do with it in life and for your fellow human-beings is even more important :

At this moment working with the french association PSYCONNECT to create accessible Centers for coaching and psychological assistance for those who need it but can’t afford it. Opening our first centers in Rouen and in Paris in 2023.
Always having been an educator, coach, trainer by heart, Gijs started a new track in life in 2022 as a Life & Business MasterCoach, sharing his experience, skills and stories with one and all.
As Regional Director in The-Alpha-Group for France he can finally combine his life’s worth of studies, experience, skills and more importantly his human skills, and offer it to others.
