My name is Nicolette Wykeman (1968) and I came to London April 2009 as a trailing spouse without a career. Before moving to London I was owner of a successful coaching company ‘2 Wykeman Coaching’ in Amsterdam for 5 years. After settling in to our new home in London I was ready for a new career. However, setting up my own company wasn’t as easy as I thought it would be. I didn’t have any useful network contacts and realised I needed to build up a strong network first. Via my network in the Netherlands I was introduced to a Dutch welfare to work company which just opened a UK office. In February 2010 I secured myself a job as a senior jobcoach and deputy manager for Calder UK so I could start building my business network.I started a job I had done 6 years ago back in Amsterdam and it has taught me the ins and outs of the London job market and learned about the variety of industries, the recruiting process and about the English business culture in general. After 6 months I was asked to work for the Chamber of Commerce as a business adviser; guiding people in setting up their own business. The experience taught me something else; it is important to build and maintain your network.A good network will give you new ideas, leads and will open many doors. My London experience and long standing career in market research, telecommunications consultancy, training and coaching resulted in setting up this specialist consultancy company Wykeman - Connecting People With London.
