Who I am
I am from The Netherlands and I lived and worked in different countries in different domains countries, like France, Great Britain, Italy, Switzerland, Germany and China.
The fact that I have worked with international people (teams and custmers), from different culltural backgrounds has provides me with a broad and diverse mindet. Arriving in a new country also demands flexibility (or agility, as it is called nowadays. Because agility means flexibility).
Living in an everchanging environment and having an inquisitive mindset is also very helpful, when one needs to learn new things swiftly. Therefore I have learned all my live. Theoretical and practical. I read interesting books and I love to communicate with other people about current und future topics. For me it is very important, to stay up-to-date and to understand the things that are happening.
May it be about digitization, new work (which means more than remote working), the changing world of commerce (online and retai) and our society. Therefore, I went back to school to deepen my knowledge and skills by attending two courses in which I gained multiple certificates with, as I may say, good results.
My diversified live is the foundation for my open mindset with respect for differences and a strong adaptability. I am open and communicative and I love to meet and to work with people of all origins. Coomunication and exchanging ideas and opinions is very excitingfor me. To lear from othersn, to convey knowledge and tointeract in a group or one-to-one. It enables a broader horizon and it improves oneself and others.
