Join the Team

The story:

Duchain & Associates was founded by Rahim Gulamali and Wendy Duchain as a consulting agency focussed in transformational consulting. We are filling the gap from traditional agile/waterfall project direction to an approach which is focussed on achieving the right level of adoption of users.

Our Vision!

Duchain in French means Chain. The team we are building is part of a long chain of expertise covering all levels of transformation. From actual program design, to direction and coaching. The element which binds all of us is that we all believe that People make the difference in respect to achieving success, or failure of the transformation. Don´t expect automation to solve challenges. People, Process and Technology are linked and if one of them fails, they all fail. Our continuous search for great Associates and the dynamics we create together, is the basis for successful and motivational change!

Our Mission:

As talented freelance (Autonomous) professionals, we offer a wide range of skills and experience build around growing businesses through optimisation, Leadership Development & Growth Coaching,, Market expansion, Post M&A integration and strategic design. We love what we do, and we do it with passion.

We support Entrepreneurs, Startup’s, Scale-Ups and Multinationals achieve sustainable growth.

Our business coaching, program direction, and purposeful transformations make the difference between failure and success. Set with us the base for sustainable growth!

Wendy Duchain (Content2Click) (EU)

Content that grabs your audience!

Marketing & communication are the thread through my work history. Because of that, the power of online and offline content quickly became clear to me. Good content is clear, to the point, grabs your target group and makes them eager to know more. 

Nowadays, customers only consider inspiring, entertaining or helpful “advertising”. If anything, Social Media reinforces the need for your brand to be authentic and creative. I deliver just that, in both words and images. It allows your brand to step into the spotlight and bond with your target audience. Before meeting them.
