Jean-Jacques Walravens


I have led and grown companies ranging from a few hundred to several thousand employees, with revenues ranging from £50m to £400m. I have lived in 10 countries and led businesses in nearly 30 countries. This broad experience has seen me work with leaders at every level, from start-ups to mature companies, and develop expertise in areas such as strategy development and execution, business transformation, marketing, and sales.

I am passionate about growth. Helping businesses grow by helping their leaders make better decisions, gives me great satisfaction and was the reason I became a Vistage Chair. As a former CEO and CMO for divisions of one of Britain’s largest multinational companies, I learned the value of having the right people beside you on your leadership journey. Leadership is tough and far better if you don’t go it alone.

Vistage is the world’s largest executive coaching organisation for small and midsize businesses. For more than 60 years Vistage has been helping CEOs, business owners and key executives solve their toughest challenges through a comprehensive approach to success. At the heart of its proven formula is confidential peer advisory groups and executive coaching sessions. Vistage has more than 27,000 members across 26 countries.

Through my 30+ years’ business experience in every corner of the planet, and by having coached executives who are now accomplished CEOs themselves, I understand what it takes to be a successful leader. As a Vistage Chair I am a trusted guide and growth catalyst to small and medium size business owners and CEO’s. I chair CEO and CXO peer advisory boards and provide one on one coaching.
