            “ExPI is clearly superior to other profiling tools and 360 concepts I have worked with. The coherent and proven model of executive presence on which the ExPI is built ensures that questions are framed in such a way that the feedback truly opens for new angles and concrete avenues a leader can pursue to optimize his/her business impact. A big thanks to Line and Halvor from Holter Consulting for bringing this much-needed framework to Scandinavia and facilitating a highly professional, inspirational, dynamic and fun certification program.”
