Position: 
Board Member

I am a committed professional, who help organisations develop their people to create extraordinary results and make their businesses sustainable.

Through positions across the value chain in entrepreneurial and fast growing industries as well as mature industries undergoing transformations, I have gained hands on experience in leadership and management. Today, I build upon this experience as a consultant.

I am dedicated about helping individuals develop their strengths and to build upon what makes them motivated, because I believe we can create extraordinary results when we do what we love to do and are great at. And I am passionate about bridging people and teams, using my process-oriented approach, seasoned communications skills, and strong drive. 

As a consultant I have worked with global companies and helped leaders and specialists grow their leadership and collaboration skills across cultures and organisations, using my strong inter-personal skills and cultural awareness. I thrive in cross cultural and cross functional settings and truly enjoy an environment of diversity and change.

My experience with Chinese culture started in 2008; since then, Beijing has been the centre of my professional and personal life; Here, I have helped organisations with leadership and communication in cross cultural settings, knowledge transfer in fast emerging market conditions and how diversity can create great and innovative results.
