"Inge's great expertise can make it clear to the participants what sleep is all about, what is 'normal', the underlying mechanisms ... and, above all, give them lots of evidence-based tips & tricks that they can use effectively. And especially in a very approachable and accessible way. She doesn't flatten people with medical jargon. Inge is a great, but also very well-founded teacher."

"During our International General Managers meeting for the Ibis Hotel Managers in the Benelux, Dr. Inge Declercq presented a 2 hour workshop “The Power of Sleep”. Inge has given us a very good and clear presentation. We got to know all about the details, facts, importance and “tips and tricks” of sleeping. The workshop is dynamic and interactive. Inge is an inspiring and super professional speaker. Our group was very enthusiastic about the workshop and I can highly recommend it to all organisations who care about the wellbeing of their teams!"
