During my years as strategist and project manager I have had the honour to be working with a bunch of highly qualifield and bright young women. In this period I noticed that we are still fighting the old conservative gender prejudices. It is my firm believe that is is time to change the status quo and therefore it is my mission to contribute to a world of equality where we can be different, but one.

Managing different (company) cultures and disciplines with apparently contradictory interests is my daily business. Building an ecosystem, connecting (the right) people and industries is what I do best.

My biggest motivation is trust based connecting and craftsmanship with as goal a long term high efficient cooperation. I am driven by a deep rooted urge to make people and organisations thrive. My core competence is the combination of strategy and implementation. Developing strategy and thereafter translating it into sustainable practice.
