MY PASSION

“My entire life, I have been fighting the status quo. Why settle for ‘what is’ when you could be aiming for ‘what could be’. To get from ‘what is’ to ‘what could be’ you need to build bridges. Discovering new technology, researching trends and communicating this with stakeholders is my drive.”

MY BELIEF

“I believe organisations can be future proof without losing their own DNA. I also believe they need to be guided in this process. Creating impact, adding value and building sustainable network & communities is my approach in life and business.”
