Welcome. 

Nederlands: FoolService is een Internationale Creatieve Organisatie uit Amsterdam, van Floris Koot. We begeleiden en trainen teams en organisaties, houden lezingen en brengen overal iets nieuws op activerende wijze. 

We help you find freedom, aliveness and meaning with innovative thinking and heartfelt solutions.

We facilitate processes that empower people, organizations & communities. Our aim is to deepen meaning and open up new possibilities. How do we do that? We make people feel more connected, more alive, creative and empowered. To make that happen we offer all kinds of programs, from interactive talks, large group facilitation to customized trainings.

We offer playful experiential programs that may mix group processes like team building, bodywork with systems thinking and or boost creativity connected to essential insights. To give an idea of our scope, we trained managers in creativity, hosted Open Space programs with scientists, opened and closed festivals with rituals, designed innovative curriculums for new educations, mentored artists and young professionals.

So what are you looking for? 

1. Facilitation of Processes? Activate your conference, festival to take the next step.

2 Uplifting workshops on many subjects around personal development, creativity, theatre, education, and more. 

3. Keynote Speaker/Guest Lecturer? Take this example at the Happy Start Up Summer Camp.

4. Online Coaching? Contact here for private sessions. 

5. Special Events for groups and companies? Or Edgy Workshops all unique, strange, creative.

    "The Way of the Fool"

Data: 13-20 juli 2019
Locatie: L'huis Preau, Frankrijk

Wil je veel intuïtiever worden, maar zit je denken vaak in de weg? Wil je speelser worden, maar vrees je niet serieus genoeg gevonden te worden? Wil je helpen in organisaties, maar ben je soms het overzicht kwijt, terwijl je lichaam roept: 'doe wat'. Dan is er The Way of the Fool. Hierin gaan we veel speelse oefeningen doen. Daarmee zetten we het hoofd uit en het 'hele systeem' aan. Je gaat bewuster en onbewuster voelen wat en waar dingen vast zitten en of wat je daaraan kan doen. En als je daarin vloeiend wordt, kun je niet alleen jezelf bevrijden van lasten, maar ook mensen en zelfs organisaties om je heen.

Workshop week in samenwerking met Anna Afman.

Competitive Coaching

Is it a performance? Is it an art? Is it serious coaching on stage? Then why is everybody laughing so much? 

If you want your team, your conference, your training day spiced up with two professionals in coaching and performing for an audience then this is it, sharp yet lighthearted, focusses yet playful, fun and serious at the same time. 

Charles Davies is an expert in giving people clarity, he's also a poet, a Buddhist and copywriter & consultant for organizations. He and Floris also have been opening and closing the Happy Start Up Summer Camp in England the last three years as a team. 

Floris Koot is an expert at making things experiential, intuitive jumps in workshops and coaching. He's also a theatre maker,  storyteller, trainer in organizations and blogger about psychology and our human culture.
