Graduated historian RU Utrecht. Active trainer/coach/consultant since 1988.

Personal passion

My passion is to set organisations and people in motion. This might be at several levels: from the exemplary role of managers (behaviour) to sharpening the required skills. I like to have managers and employees experience they can influence motion!


My approach is practical, no-nonsense, humorous, critical, result-driven and energetic. People come into action.


Behaviour models (such as DISC, MBTI, Management Drives) have lead to a deeper insight in opportunities that arise when reflecting on your behaviour. Thinking in terms of opportunities mobilises individuals and teams. It undoubtedly contributes to the ability to realise goals and ambitions. My specialty is to make the connection between behaviour and skills.
