There is this unstoppable urge I have that since I started working for myself (in 2009 when I was only 23 years old) and actually long before that, got stronger and stronger. I was always fascinated by people’s true intentions and purpose. Back then I didn’t know as clear as now, but looking back I’ve always been working on building identities. For people in my personal life, for CEO’s and leaders of big organisations, for the entrepreneur setting up or expanding a business and for organisations in general.
Blood is thicker than water. As the (grand)daughter of entrepreneurial (grand)parents, it was clear to me early on that I wanted to work for myself. When at age 23 I was asked by Mercedes-Benz to do market research for them, the step was quickly made. Employment was never an issue again.
As a marketing and communications consultant for various clients in the Netherlands, from small companies to municipalities, from professional soccer clubs to the board of the national soccer association, I developed an enormous body of knowledge and experience at an early age. I set up departments, developed and executed marketing and corporate branding strategies and was always active in connecting the people in my network with interesting contacts and business ideas. After a few years, I grew more into business coaching and interim assignments.
Until March 2020, I worked solely at the board-level as a Strategy Advisor and Trusted Advisor for entrepreneurs, CEOs and leaders. This means I was their go-to person for all topics from personal positioning to strategic organisational issues and everything in between.
And also for the person itself. Who are you in your true essence, what are you here for and what is holding you back achieving this?
I enjoy going back to the real essence and core and from there, (re)build what’s needed to create even more impact.
By going on my own journey inwards, I’m even more convinced that we all should live and work more from this powerful tool we pocess: our own wisdom. These days, I guide many fellow GameChangers from all over the world to re-connect them with themselves, themselves (again) with their business and their business (again) with the market.
I will continue doing this specifically for those who work within an impact driven organisation or who have their own impact driven business (such as myself) and want to take this to the next level. When I speak of “impact driven” I’m talking about those who’s main purpose is to improve the lives of others. Mostly by using their own past pains or experiences as a catalyst for growth.
I developed GAMECHANGERS UNITED as the flagship for all my programs and events. From 1:1 coaching to exclusive MasterMinds and retreats and my Podcast. Everything I do is designed to give you guidance and support for your identity, direction and growth as GameChanger in your industry. Besides that I organise 3 special retreat programs on Mallorca (in a finca, with a motorcycle ánd on a catamaran), I just wrote my first book and I’m a Public Speaker on topics as Female- and Social Entrepreneurship.
I will enrich my work with two special programs: one for siblings (and their family) with a disabled brother or sister and one for women who lost their baby or a child and need to grief and heal from that.
Being a genuine GameChanger profile (according to The GCIndex), I’m constantly working on transforming the future. With new ideas, strategies, concepts and approaches. Being a true empath ánd gifted with visionary and intuitive skills, I work with my clients from deep inner to high strategic levels. Exactly there where transformations take place.
These two skills, combined with my personal experiences, helped me massively when I decided to turn my life around in March 2020. I lost my business, my babies and myself back then. It was time to live up to what I’m here for, to help others go back to their authentic self and from there build an Impact Imperium myself as well. I managed to turn my life and business around in 18 months and I’m happy to share how.
