has a Master in Economics at the Lessius University of Antwerp.
Xenia started her career end of the eighties in her father's export company. Her extensive language knowledge - besides the usual languages in Belgium such as French, English and Dutch, she speaks Polish and Hebrew - helped her a lot. In order to gain experience outside the family business, she decided in 1996 to join a pharmaceutical company as manager internal sales.
When a few years later she was asked to become export manager for a Belgian beer brewer Alken-Maes she did not hesitate. Soon her analytical capacities and her market feeling proved to be very valuable, making her switch to the marketing department, where she had different functions, her latest being market research manager.
After a sabbatical (a 13-months world tour with her family, see: www.dewereldrond.org) she decided in 2010 to follow a full year course of train-the-trainer given the success of her husband's company for which she already worked quite some years behind the scene.
She wrote her dissertation about Appreciative Inquiry (AI), a method in which she recognizes for the full 100% her own positive, appreciative lifestyle. Since the beginning of 2011 she actively makes and runs training programs for a variety of customers.
In a short period of time Xenia has built a considerable track record of enthusiastic trainees and customers.
Xenia's strengths consist in guiding people in recognizing and appreciating their own talents and those of others, using AI. Inspiring others, teaching them to think (more) is truly one of her biggest passions.
