Speaker information

Carola Van den Bruinhorst


With over 20 years of experience as partner at Loyens & Loeff, an international law firm with some 1.500 employees, I now am a seasoned consultant in transformation processes and leadership development, who helps executives and professionals achieve their full potential. As advisor to the firm, I design, implement, and run a development program for the firm's 100 plus equity partners. I also serve as a member of the Management Board of the International Bar Association and as its Chair of the Legal Practice Division. I am passionate about diversity and inclusion, and I have co-founded and chaired the IBA's Diversity & Inclusion Council and the firm's Diversity Council. I have extensive international experience, having lived and worked abroad for many years, in New York, Milan, and Hong Kong. I excel at communication, transformation and leadership development. My mission is to empower and inspire others to achieve their goals and contribute to the success of their organizations. I graduated in law, have several post graduate degrees, including the New Board Program at Nyenrode Business University and a certification in Executive Coaching from VU Amsterdam. I now participate in the Executive Master in Change program at Insead.
