Our mission

To be successful in supporting and delivering ideas, to structure and inspire organizations that want to define and reach a new goal. K4K works together with these organizations in order to actually reach the new ‘Point at a Distance (PaD)’.

Our promise

we deliver success, together with the customer. We are convinced that we deliver success and thus we are able to agree on a fee structure based on the success we deliver. How? That is tailor-made and will be discussed which each customer individually.

What we are not

We are not consultants, although we advise, we will never stop at that point, we want to deliver success and therefore we are involved during the implementation

We are not interim managers, we do not limit ourselves to management alone, we design and co-construct a new mission, the new future of our customer and we feel at home in a changing and dynamic environment; don’t ask us just to control an organization.

About John Kuiper

Obviously I am a fanatic business driver and on top of running my organization. Important is however that in doing so I try to maintain and develop some standards for myself and the people I work with. On top of the list is the principle that work should be fun and initiatives are always welcomed, every idea is worthwhile discussing. Living up to moral standards is a way to develop respect and to create sustainable value and commitment. Communication is a key driver for success (internally and externally).
Physical well-feeling is important and thus I also like to jog (long distance running) and play some golf and plan family outings.
Balance between work and private live is a permanent and interesting challenge.
