I’m 51 and have 28 years of international experience as a change and communication consultant. My work entails intense periods of designing and preparing change processes, and many facilitated workshops, conferences and events in boardrooms, congress centres, film studios and zoom calls. I’m at home with both small and large groups, serving clients from excellent companies and governmental and societal organisations. I bridge gaps and bring the right people to the table to unstick and move issues forward. My work’s all about change. What a privilege!

Mindset & Values
Participation must promote the efficiency and effectiveness of change and strategy processes.
Form follows function: I focus on results, not methods.
I love to enable change.
I value my clients, partners and members of my networks as friends and seek to serve their interests and needs.
I am totally trustworthy.
I am fascinated by human interaction and dedicated to listening and creating mutual understanding.
I do not judge and enjoy experiencing and empowering human diversity.
I actively oppose prejudice and chauvinism.
Form follows function: I focus on results and create/adapt the methods to achieve them.
Thanks to Steven Wilkinson for animating me to think about these and put them down in writing.
This website also contains a blog to contain some of my thoughts and experiences on facilitation. Please consider it a discussion on facilitation and the facilitator role. I’d like to find out about what you think and interact with the global community of facilitators and those who see the benefits of being facilitated!
