Our talents are our biggest and most unique strength. They are the knowledge, the experience and the wisdom keepers in our community. They have the ability to help startups and SMEs, which are huge drivers of the economy, grow.

The talents help you and us to solve business challenges by offering new insights and preventing you from making the same mistakes as they have made in the past. Here are some quotes of what the Retired Talents think about us!

Paul Langemeijer

"When Retired Talents asked for a quality that I can help companies with, I first thought about programming, but further in the process I discovered new qualities that I didn’t think about in the first place"

Kees van der Hall

"Retired Talents separate themselves from the competitors by adding the personal touch. Keeping you happy is their highest priority!"

Pim Verboon
