What is important to you and inspires you?

I am future-oriented, love to see beyond today. I am inspired by thought leaders, futurists and great innovators, to understand the impact of technology on people’s lives and jobs, required skills and capabilities. I am a true believer that growth happens out of your comfort zone, so staying curious and courageous is the key to career and personal success. Next, to designing new solutions, I dedicate most of the time to developing people, inspiring them, coaching to explore their true potential. I am passionate about Inclusion & Diversity and the advancement of female role models. I‘ve spent half of my career working for Philips in the Netherlands, so I can relate to challenges of dual-income couples who decide to relocate abroad and share my experience how to make you feel like home in Eindhoven, a lovely a place to live in.
