‘Offering clarity, context, and fresh perspectives’, that is the added value to my work. I am passionate working with people, connecting them and creating common ground for future perspectives.

‘Changing perspectives’ and ‘perspectives on change’ are ever returning themes in my work. I am at my best when able to combine several fields of expertise:

Change management
Training and coaching
Arabist | Middle East and North Africa expert
Writing and research


My approach is inclusive, analytical, process and client-oriented. And it is in-depth:
I enjoy listening to what motivates others. And explore why people do the things they do? What are their talents and their dreams? What is their ability to change, and what does it take them to get there? In a group process I enable everybody to contribute from their own strengths to the group dynamics.

My view of the world is holistic. People are connected and can’t live without each other. I encourage out-of-the-box thinking. When fresh perspectives broaden my view of the world, it makes me smile. Room for flexibility and creativity is another important prerequisite for finding solutions. People who use the power of imagination feel inspired and are able to go beyond existing patterns and structures.

I studied Arabic Language and Culture. Besides that I am fluent in Dutch, English and German. My French is on a professional working proficiency. My Spanish is basic. As I work with international clients I choose to address you in English.


The following values are important to me:

Open and clear communication and cooperation is beneficial to all parties involved, and creates an environment of trust.
Being true to your own personality and beliefs makes life more fulfilling. My intention is to accept assignments, which I genuinely believe in and feel committed to.
Sensitive information stays confidential.
Together we can create a better world. This begins with reciprocity in relations, equality, sharing and respect. Scientific research has proven that in a more equal society people are happier, healthier and more satisfied.
