Your Adventure awaits… let’s go!

Follow the Adventure facilitates Personal and Leadership Team Development programs aimed to help international leaders reach peak performance, improve relationships, and increase overall sense of fulfillment and wellbeing.

Through an accelerated coaching program we explore together what is needed to make the desired change. From uncovering inner strengths and purpose to finding ways around limiting barriers, we embark on a journey to reconnect with your true essence, strengthen your confidence and help you unleash your full potential.
Besides coaching I offer tailor made intercultural and leadership development programs for further self and team development, combined with HR consulting to bring about the changes necessary to transform your business. 

Follow the Adventure is a companion for people and organisations who wish to grow from where they are to where they want to be.

Who is Follow the Adventure?

My name is Mirjam Buitelaar. I was born in the Netherlands in 1977, and I love to connect with people. I have a genuine interest in their stories, and my compassionate nature is easily recognised, received, and returned. I am curious and open-minded to the world and the people around me. I care for people and am deeply motivated by supporting and helping them get the best out of themselves.


Mirjam offered her coaching services and the transformation was felt from the first 2 sessions I had with her. I learned to control my nerves and started believing in myself again. The results couldn't have come quicker. Within a month, I had 2 offers in my hand and I felt ready for the world again. Mirjam was very understanding, non-judgemental and made me feel secure enough to openly discuss my inner thoughts and challenges.

I’ve loved working with Mirjam. She is easy to talk to, has a positive vitality, and a professional and honest approach to coaching. Whether the topic we tackled was professional or personal, I came away from every coaching session with a sense of clarity and empowerment. Her powerful and professional insights, her direct questioning and her encouragement helped me analysing why I was making certain decisions, how to look at them from different perspectives, and how to repack them.
