Every top athlete has a top coach. Business is a top sport so why not have a top business coach too? Dare to reflect, dare to take ownership, dare to be vulnerable, dare to relax, dare to change, dare to innovate yourself and your team.


You are a professional and an expert, and you know what to do, but I also know that this role can be a lonely one.

The challenges and decisions HR leaders have to face can be overwhelming at times, and there is never enough time in the day.

You find yourself crazy busy with daily operational stuff and know you need a time-out to reflect on things, but when?

If you could only talk to someone about things, to get a second opinion or put things in perspective, but there are always so many things happening that you can’t share with your team (or your manager as they even might be part of the challenge) and at home, they often don’t really understand the dynamics you are working in. I can be your sparring partner, a trusted advisor to help guide your thinking, give quality input, share best practices with and challenge your line of thinking. I understand the context and challenges of the environment and have a similar intellectual understanding.

I am a good listener and have a sense of humour 😄

I know my stuff and am passionate about helping you succeed even more in your role by sharing knowledge, inspiration and Innovation. I am a previous CHRO of the year and also a bit of a corporate HR rebel.

I hope you decide to invest in yourself and start with allocating the time for your own personal development. I am genuinely keen on boosting your talent and success and building your personal brand (online).
