The Team

mansi aoh.jpeg

Mansi feels fortunate to have lived an unconventional story bringing her from being an architect in India to a practitioner designing & hosting meaningful conversations, processes and a co-founder of Conscious Business. She offers a deep connection to life, treehugging, humour, stories, a listening ear, unexpected creative ideas, hugs, warmth, some madness, energy & a lot of colour.


Originating from India and living in the Netherlands since the year 2000, you could call her a cross-pollinating generalist who has interdisciplinary work experience in several international organisations & across various sectors. In 2008, a growing sense of climate urgency led her to re-orient herself & step off the conveyer belt of "success & safety". In this last decade, she has been strongly purpose driven and focuses on facilitating participatory leadership, DEI & empowerment through building capacities, skills & communities.


Having grown up with strong family/cultural values around justice, equality and being in service (sewa), she tries her best to embody these values in her way of being.

Yannick Wassmer (he/him) is a student of equitable systems change and a complexity nerd. He loves to design and facilitate collaborative change processes and transformative learning experiences - using participatory and dialogic methodologies for inner and outer change.


He firmly believes that the challenges we face as society are far too complex for any individual, organisation or sector to solve alone and therefore require radically different ways of working and being together.


In recent years, Yannick has organised, designed, and facilitated large scale multi-stakeholder collaboration processes addressing challenges including race, energy, drugs, health, and sustainable development.
