At INTERPOINT we believe that nothing is impossible and that skilled, talented people are the key to a better quality of life for everyone. Culture, attitude, knowledge, responsibility, integrity, the ability to trade – these are a number of factors which play a role in creating capacity and empowerment of people worldwide.
We are passionate about bringing positive change and working with ministries, agencies and charities to achieve this.
We work transparently with clear and open rules of business — no small print here. Feel free to browse our current terms and conditions:

With our knowledge and experience we are always able to relate to the culture of the company: we think together with our customers.

We commit ourselves fully to the organizations and the people we work with, who they are and what they find important. We immerse ourselves in their context and identify clear goals. This means that we are able to connect personal and common goals with each other in the form of a development project: we train in the context of an organization.
The dynamics of our profession require us to remain critical at all times, including being critical of ourselves. By being transparent in our behavior and having an openness to feedback from participants and organizations, which helps us to always be on the lookout for ways to improve and connect our courses better to the here and now, paying attention to developments for the future.
