Stimulating awareness and response–ability are the key drivers in my work. Clients value my presence which creates a calm and safe space.
Before I worked as a change management consultant for Holland Consulting Group and PricewaterhouseCoopers. For the last 21 years I ran my own consultancy practice Heartmatters.
I earned an MA in law from Leiden University and a post–graduate degree in management consultancy from the University in Amsterdam. I worked closely with Sir John Whitmore, a renowned expert in coaching. I am licensed for using the Leadership Circle Profile, FiroB, the Leadership Styles Inventory and Richard Barrett’s Cultural Transformation Tool.
My wife Edith and I have three children. I enjoy playing guitar, piano, singing, travelling, jogging, and skiing. Practicing meditation is a great source of of energy for me. I am an associate with Leaders Quest, a social enterprise connecting leaders globally. I have written two books: ‘Persoonlijk Succes’ (Kluwer 1994) and ‘Hoofd ontmoet Hart’ (Het Spectrum 2004).
