BRING IN THE MARINES

Whatever your mission, your organisation can only succeed when your teams are willing to fight for it. Allied Forces combines know-how from the Dutch Marine Corps with extensive business and consultancy experience. This way we forge alliances between leaders, teams and individuals.

BUILDING SUCCESSFUL TEAMS & ORGANISATIONS

Allied Forces supports talent to adopt a mentality aiming at creating and maintaining the right focus, commitment and trust. This results in enhanced personal effectiveness and teams being able to exploit their maximum potential and exceed their expectations. The alliances created by Allied Forces ensure that a winning mentality and company values are broadly embraced. This leads to the realisation of company objectives.

INDIVIDUAL

We provide individuals insight in their talents and potential pitfalls and help them discover their own resilience. This allows them to make the best use of their qualities and make the right choices. Through our constructive confrontational approach we increase the level of self-awareness, strengthen competencies and accelerate talent development.

TEAM

High Performing Teams make the difference in every organisation. They provide the necessary flow which allows people to flourish and always place the team interest above their own sake. Teamwork is based on mutual trust, common goals and commitment. No unnecessary energy is lost because of bad decision making or poor execution of plans. In this way we prepare teams for the realisation of ambitious goals under challenging circumstances. We accelerate execution power.

ORGANISATION

A successful organisation differentiates itself by its high performing culture and individuals who are conscious of their individual contribution on the overall company results. They make the difference between success and failure. They understand why they are doing something and are dedicated to perform. Leaders fulfill example roles and teams determine themselves how to achieve their objectives, whereby ownership and commitment are crucial. A nice balance between involvement and loyalty. Between freedom and discipline. Leading and following.

Who we are

After a career of 16 years at the Dutch Marine Corps, several missions and countless trainings all over the world, Armand van Velzen decided to leave his officer’s career to found Business Take Off with a colleague in 2014. In a short period of time they managed to bind leading businesses by using a no-nonsense approach and a boundless desire to win. They consciously opted for a growth strategy: In 2015 they started a partnership with a select group of Associate Partners.

One of these partners is the experienced business consultant Cathalijne van Melle. She has developed her track record as a consultant with several, international HR consultancies in Europe and Moscow. This is where she proved to be from the same mould as a marine: be successful under difficult circumstances and deliver quality and added value to customers. Cathalijne’s fields of expertise are talent management and leadership and team development within international organisations.

The combination between the private sector and the Marine Corps turned out to be extremely successful. In 2018 they laid the foundations together for the next important growth stage of the company, with a new name and identity: ALLIED FORCES.
