Lucid Communication is Ilja van Roon's passion and profession.
Clients say that Ilja is kind, discrete and trustworthy. He is incisive without being judgemental, honest yet diplomatic. Ilja is present and dependable during turbulent assignments. Clients say Ilja clarifies their thinking and helps them to be more effective leaders.
Ilja has a razor sharp intuition and quickly finds the essence of complex issues. He loves connecting people and ideas and putting things in a broader perspective. Ilja finds things without looking for them (and doesn't understand why other people call this 'luck'). He also has a knack for languages.
Ilja loves to learn and go on adventures. He is incurably curious and optimistic. He is fascinated by how language influences people's thinking, feeling and behaviour. He is equally fascinated by shiny gadgets.
Ilja has a deep love of Aikido, a Japanese martial art. For him it is a rich source of joy, growth and awakening. Currently, he is working towards his first black belt.
After secondary school, Ilja not even remotely finished university before dropping out. Later, he obtained a Masters in Corporate Communication, got certified in NLP up to Master Practitioner level and graduated from Corporate Coach U. He also trained with Dr. Stephen Gilligan in the art of generative trance.
Ilja worked as a journalist for an English-language daily in Kuwait and moonlighted as a copywriter. He also worked in the field of corporate communication, before setting up his company.
