learn more about us

We are Peter Henssen and Katja Visser. In the context of “walk your talk”, we have applied the principles of personal leadership for our own goals. One mayor goal has been achieved and that is living and working on our own piece of land in Botswana, the Phazama Farm, on the edge of the Okavango Delta.

It is our mission to teach and support other people to grow their personal freedom. We inspire you to become an autonomous person who strives for what is important and valuable to you. Out of your personal freedom you will create and follow your own path consciously and connected to your environment and you will become a person that shares your talents and gifts without fear and shame and you will express yourself, just in the way you want!

We do this in the Netherlands but most of the time in Botswana, preferably at our own Phazama Farm. We live in the Okavango Delta, the most beautiful and pristine nature reserve of Botswana. Here we find peace and inspiration ourselves but it is also the place for you to let everything go, to be inspired by nature, to start using all your senses again and to find out more about yourself and your purpose.

We also have self-catering guest houses where guests can stay to enjoy nature, wildlife and tranquility.

About Peter Henssen and Katja Visser

Peter Henssen has a backpack full of experiences and knowledge as a manager, consultant and trainer from over the past 35 years. He laid the foundation for this in the army and afterwards he experienced the do’s and don’ts of leadership in numerous management positions in various companies. During his master’s study in England, he started to study leadership and was able to conclude that leadership is not just for managers but for everyone. Next to his management consultancy business, he was a lecturer at the Rotterdam University of Applied Science where he taught Business Management, Organizational Science and Personal Leadership. He has also gained a lot of experience as a coach. For him personal leadership is the key to be who you want to be and and to do what you want to do; this is personal freedom. He has set himself the goal of teaching and inspiring everyone who is open to what personal leadership is and how to apply it for better life.

“Build your own dreams, or someone else will hire you to build theirs.”

Katja Visser has been traveling all over the world from an early age and has worked in various commercial positions. But, after her voluntary work in Peru, her life changes. She decides that she is committed to better future opportunities for children and women around the world. In that capacity, she leads StartUp4Kids Foundation and gives personal leadership trainings to women and children around the world.

Her dream is to give through Leadership2Impact Academy every individual the tools to create an independent future. She prefers to do this from her farm in Botswana, together with her husband Peter. She inspires others to think about their dreams, to make them come true and to share their passion to others.


We believe it is important to have a positive impact on our environment. By participating to our training in Botswana you directly support employment in our Tsutsubega community. Beside that you contribute to the personal leadership programs for vulnerable women and children in our region.
