I believe we can solve big problems by using creativity and innovation combined with strategic thinking and an entrepreneurial mindset.
I love to work with individuals, start-ups and large organizations and make them more innovative for the sake of all their stakeholders. I enjoy working with inspiring and dynamic leaders to address the world’s pressing challenges and I like to do so at scale. I have been entrepreneur, board member, start-up mentor and former innovation & strategy consultant (with Accenture and McKinsey).
At THNK I focus on our executive program, innovation programs for specific organizations and online innovation (courses, platforms and tools) and our expansion efforts in Dubai. Apart from teaching at THNK, I have been guest faculty at Wharton, Columbia, TIAS Business School, Rotterdam School of Management and TU Delft.
Next to studying engineering at Delft University of Technology, I received an MBA from INSEAD and learned Design Thinking at Stanford. When I’m not at work, I enjoy cycling, boating on Amsterdam’s canals and walking my dog at the beach. After living in Switzerland, France, Singapore and Hong Kong I enjoy living in the city center of Amsterdam.
