PRESS RELEASE - November 5, 2014. SNR Schouten Global, of which Schouten & Nelissen forms part, is to focus completely on training in soft skills, leadership, organizational development, and coaching. In the next few years, the Dutch market leader in personal skills training will be seeking to become a major world player in this field. One of the consequences of this strategy is that Schouten Global has sold its other knowledge-training activities, the best-known of which is ISBW, to the NCOI training group.
As all participating boats are identical, the skipper and his crew are the decisive factors in winning the prestigious Volvo Ocean Race 2014-15. And although all participants are driven professionals and share the same great dream, they will have to excel themselves to win this race of races. That is why Schouten Global added their director coaching Anje-Marijcke van Boxtel to the team. She’s the perfect complement to both skipper Bouwe Bekking and his crew.
