Our History

De Kleine Consultant was founded in 2008 in the Netherlands by Marieke Ebbing, Jacqueline van den Ende and Christiaan Henny after their spontaneous recommendations to the Uitkijk Cinema in Amsterdam revealed just how effective students can be as consultants! When three members of De Kleine Consultant began their studies in London, they decided to bring their extensive consultancy expertise with them. Together, they established The Young Consultant in 2014 and we have not stopped growing since!
