I am thankful for more than 15 years of cutting-edge HR practice in close collaboration with regional and global Leadership Teams across the life sciences, biotechnology, agriculture and chemical industry. I have a strong track record in transformational change projects in multinational companies including culture change, organizational development and effectiveness and leadership team development. One of the highlights included steering the people agenda for a newly integrated Biotechnology business unit focusing on strategic workforce planning and talent development projects. I am a certified Change Excellence Professional and a trained High Performing Team facilitator. 


When clients trust me to support them in attracting external talents to their organizations, I act as an ambassador of their mission and values  and think along their talent and strategic workforce strategy. Candidates appreciate the human touch and the professional and transparent interactions throughout the whole process.


When working with a client, I spend time to understand the organizational and cultural context of each client to successfully co-create a human-centered approach that will enable the client to implement an impactful and sustainable change.
