Dirk de Vos

Former director of Levi Strauss & Co, Van de Velde, Sally Beauty | Self employed Business Strategist

I have been following Isrid for many years and she has always been a source of inspiration. Many of her articles and writings made me think and review my standpoints. We finally got to meet a couple of months ago, and the conversation we had was so inspiring that it made me decide, there and then, to start my own business. A true cosmopolitan, Isrid has her finger on the pulse of what is going on today, or even more: on what will be going on tomorrow.

Micheline D’hane

Head of Sales Schiphol Airport Retail (SAR) | Member of the MT

Isrid and I share the strong belief that people who feel good in their role and are challenged, make a positive difference in a company. Isrid has filled a number of vacancies for managers in senior positions. Thanks to her extensive retail knowledge, strong empathetic feeling and experience, she manages to cast the right people. I also found an excellent sparring partner in Isrid, our conversations often translate into beautiful plans that contribute to our corporate culture. In 2019, Isrid developed and led a “lead by example” program for our Sales Managers Team, focusing on Empowerment & Ownership. Through her openness and professionalism, Isrid is able to quickly win the trust of people and get them moving. Where Isrid goes, energy flows!

The very first moment I met Isrid I was sure she was the right person at the right time. She made a contribution to the success of the Master in Fashion and Luxury Management of the Rome Business School. As a professor she has not only inspired the students, she has also pushed and helped them to become better thinkers, gain deep and insightful answers which will help them for their future careers. In other words she has worked hard at helping the students become better managers for a better world. Thanks Isrid for your contribution!

Giulia Tarozzi

International Retail Operations Manager Stone Island

Isrid and I know each other since five years, and the core of our collaboration dates back to 2015 when I opened the Stone Island flagship store in Amsterdam. At the time I did not know much about the retail and fashion scene in the city, and as soon as I got in touch with her I remember that I felt this sort of “relief” because I KNEW she was going to support me in the recruitment process for the whole team in the way I always hope for: not only well aware of the local candidate sourcing, but also able to listen to me and understand which type of team I was dreaming about, in terms of vibes, brand culture and customer service approach. This sensibility is not evident with head hunters, I can grant this, and for me it’s what makes a difference between the good ones and the outstanding ones, like Isrid surely is. Her way to connect with people is the key in all her endeavors and projects and I really admire her for this - I hope I have a bit of the same!
