Supporting growth, both individually as well as in teams, is the main motivator in my work. The diversity between people and their ability to find their own solutions always inspires and humbles me. Liberating that power generates energy and better business results. I love to use right and left brain approaches, facts and feelings, humor and analysis. Trust is the cornerstone of my approach.
With a degree in process engineering from Wageningen University, I spent sixteen years with Unilever, ultimately as a Director in supply chain management. Working independently since 2007, I have studied and gained experience with ITIP, MMS coach training and facilitation, non–violent communication with Marshall Rosenberg, and Family and Business Constellations at the Bert Hellinger Institute.
I cherish my marriage to my wife Joke and our home in Arnhem. My daily Buddhist meditation practice is an indispensable source of inspiration, alongside my beloved violin, Tai Chi, yoga, and regular runs in the forest.
