Floortje van Tilburg developed into a talented researcher after completing her degree at Tilburg University. But in the end she chose practice over theory. It turns out that both the mind and the heart are key factors that must be taken into account in the quest for realistic answers and pragmatic solutions. This is because the world is anything but black and white. Floortje, as colourful as she is, understands this better than anyone. Without allowing herself to be drawn into side issues, she is able to distinguish between reason and emotion with expert precision. In her recommendations she will, whenever possible, give you room to make choices. With both the mind and heart. But she will not lose sight of your interests for a second and will play hardball when necessary. Because Floortje naturally takes a strong stand if needed.
