Coaching for hearings, round table discussions and (parliamentary and Select Committee) inquiries

Meines Holla & Partners offers coaching for hearings, round table discussions and (parliamentary and Select Committee) inquiries. Regardless of whether the hearing, round table discussions or (parliamentary and Select Committee) inquiry are being held at national, provincial or local authority level, it is important that you get your message across as effectively as possible. This will enable you to avoid or limit as far as possible any prejudicial impact on yourself, your organisation or your position.

Did you know, by the way, that every Dutch citizen is legally obliged to cooperate in a parliamentary or Select Committee inquiry under the Parliamentary Inquiries Act?

Professional preparation

Meines Holla & Partners acts as your adviser and sparring partner. We can assist you professionally to prepare to present your viewpoint and give your responses as effectively as possible during a hearing, round table discussions or (parliamentary and Select Committee) inquiry.

Bert Bakker will give you the coaching and guidance you need. Drawing on his experience as chairman of the ‘parliamentary inquiry into decision-making in peace missions’ and the ‘Srebrenica parliamentary commission of inquiry’ as well as his experience as a former member of the Lower House of Parliament, Bert will brief you on everything you need to know about and during hearings, (parliamentary and Select Committee) inquiries and round table discussions.

Bert will immerse himself in your specific situation and identify your vulnerabilities. He will prepare you for difficult questions, advise you on how to navigate political sensitivities, how to avoid political traps and how to make a positive lasting impression, to ensure your message is heard loud and clear.
