What do they say about us?
Berry van Kooi
Managing Director, PPS Pipelines (now retired)
On 21 July 2021, PPS Pipelines was confronted with the most serious incident in its history. The PALL pipeline, which crosses the Maas at the level of Maasmechelen, was damaged to such an extent that it had to be completely replaced. This challenge was masterfully met, and by 13 August 2021, the PALL connection between Antwerp and Chemelot was fully functional again.
PPS Pipelines called on Talking Circles for crisis communication They were there for us, despite other assignments and the fact that it was in the middle of the holiday season, to bring this challenge to a successful conclusion. Your professionalism, commitment, perseverance, and teamwork were crucial in achieving this exceptional result. When things got really challenging for us, you were there to help us.
Thank you very much for your contribution on behalf of the PPS-Pipelines Management Team.
Communications Manager EMEA, Terumo EuropE
Talking Circles assists us with our internal corporate communications campaigns. They successfully combine strategic advice, based on their broad experience in corporate communications, and a hands-on mentality. Adding to that their flexibility and multilingual skills (always comes in handy) make it a pleasure for us to work with Dirk and his team.
Director General at Federal Agency for Nuclear Conrol
When the head of our communication department fell ill at a moment when we were getting a great deal of media attention, we hired Dirk as a temporary replacement. Although he was not familiar with the technical matters, his overall insights and strategic views were of great added value. In addition, he also helped out on the fine details of the work to be done. His work was very much appreciated, both by the team members and by management. I would not hesitate to contact him again if the need should arise.
VP Operations - EMEA at Goodyear & Dunlop Tyres
Dirk is an excellent communications professional and a highly collaborative team member. I recommend him without reservation.
HR Business Partner, SABIC Belgium N.V.
As a new production site, we realised we had a need for professional support in communications during our start-up phase, mainly for organising events such as the groundbreaking ceremony, the official opening of the site, etc. At such moments, it is crucial to be able to rely on somebody who has the appropriate know-how and experience when it comes to external communications with media, political decision makers, VIPs and others. During the entire process, from start-up to the operational phase, Talking Circles has always given us very practical and professional advice. On top of this, they support us in producing our employee magazine as well as in building and updating our website; things for which there is never enough time internally. Talking Circles has also trained our management team in crisis communication and on how to deal with the media in general. We are very pleased with Talking Circles’ services.
