About us

Brilliant Entrepreneur was founded by Yvette van Dok and Karen Kammeraat.


Yvette van Dok

'All people in the world work based on their talent.' This is the driving wish in Yvette's work. Her own talent ‘to put people into motion' is a source of inspiration and support for this.

Following her study at the Agricultural University in Wageningen, she worked for 15 years in Africa, Asia and Latin America. In 2003, she returned to the Netherlands and started her company Co-Motion Consult, focusing on talent and business development. She has two children, lives in Driebergen and loves to make music.


Karen Kammeraat

'A fair income for everyone.' That is the mission Karen is working on. Karen graduated in Industrial Design Engineering and Advanced Development Studies and has over 20 years of experience in development cooperation. She worked three years at the Centre for Promotion of Imports from Developing Countries, eight years at Oxfam Novib and lived for two years in Tanzania. In 2009 she started her own company Nyota. She also established the FairShopping Foundation, a guide to shops that sell fair trade, organic and second hand products, available in more than 50 cities. She lives in The Hague with her husband and two daughters. Her talent is to set fires.

Our team

Our team is expanded when necessary with:

Local expertise and trainers

When conducting a training in another country we always work with a local organization. They are responsible for the promotion of the program, selection of participants, coordination of the mentorship program and logistics. Also, we always involve a local trainer, in order to create the foundation of the further spreading of talent management. Click here to see with whom we worked.
