The Weekend has given me insights that will benefit me for the rest of my life. I am very grateful to Gerard and Wim!


In 20 years of business working for multinational companies I have never experienced such an impactful workshop. The Weekend unlocked an awareness which transformed my approach to both professional and personal life.

What is
The Weekend?

During this intensive four-day training course, you will make a personal journey with the aim of increasing your self-awareness. 

We create a completely safe environment with confrontational exercises that trigger a profound learning process. From within this group process, you explore your personal fears, self-image and defence mechanisms at your own pace.

As a result, you will be able to make more conscious choices and focus your attention on living your life exactly the way you want it. As a group you will create a profound and trustworthy connection with each other.

For whom is The Weekend?

It's for anyone curious about important issues in his or her life.

  • You want to experience more fulfilment in your life or work
  • You sometimes feel like you are losing control
  • You are facing an important choice in your life
  • You want to make different choices in your life or work
  • You want to experience more happiness in your relationships
  • You experience stress but are not so sure how to deal with it

Will you give this as a gift to yourself or a colleague?

The next edition is scheduled for 16 - 19 october 2024
