Change Management

Contributing to processes of change within organizations, companies or societies brings out the best in me. Assignments have included organization development, team building and social issues and questions. Facilitating change through exchange, participation and social innovation, that is my strength.

Training & Coaching

My training experience is all-round: personal leadership, team building, effective communication, gender, cross-cultural sensitivity and Train the Trainer. I stimulate trainees to work from their strengths by creating awareness, acquiring skills and dealing with tensions. Investing in human capital, this is where change begins.

Writing & Research

As an Arabist I offer ‘clarity, context and fresh perspectives’ to the changing circumstances in the region. In 15 years of journalism and media I published in Dutch and European daily’s, weekly’s and monthly magazines and participated in international conferences. Storytelling presents us the human beings behind a narrative.
