My background is in HRM. I began my career in 1999 as an HR consultant for ABN Amro Bank. I then went and worked as a consultant and coach at KPMG for six years. My passion is guiding and developing (groups of) people. I base my work on the assumption that 'wisdom' is already present in people/the system. The art to what I do is discovering how to unlock that wisdom so that people/the team become more effective?
In 2012, after four years of working as a trainer and coach for the Frits Philips Junior & Partners bureau, I started my own company BEING LEADERSHIP. I have been giving intensive leadership courses and accompanying trails to the Swiss Alps, Botswana and South Africa ever since. I'm also a Kundalini yoga teacher and offer this form of yoga during the trails to any participant who is interested. I'm married to Aartjan and mother to twins Okke & Willem (9) and Fiene (7).
