Hallo! I’m glad you’re here.

My mission is to empower leaders and their teams with new and practical ways of working.

I love agile coaching — not blindly following seemingly smart theoretic frameworks, but confidently adapting to your team’s and organisational needs. Never one size fits all. Pragmatic thinking is necessary.

My expertise is facilitating workshops. In all sorts of settings: Management consulting. Innovation. Design Sprints. Strategy. Scrum. QBR/ABR. PI-Plannings. Team building. Offsites. Remote. In-person. From 5 to 100 participants.

If you have any questions, please email me or book an call.

I wish you a successful day, the best of health, and much love!
