Bakkenist’s people have proven their qualities as organisational advisors and managers at the direction level of many professional companies, the government and health care organisations.
The combined strengths of all these professionals are what make Bakkenist special, perhaps even unique. Together, we are able to offer advice, realise large-scale projects and programmes and temporarily assume leadership of an organisation or a part thereof.
