I was born and raised in the Netherlands, I have travelled a lot and lived and worked in quite some countries like Switzerland, The United Kingdom, France, Italy and China.
I have been working as a banqueting (event) manager in five-star deluxe hotels and luxury restaurants (2 to 3 stars Guide Michelin and 18-19,5 of 20 Gault Millau points) after I successfuly became a bachelor hospitality.
In Germany I have been educated as a User Experience (UX) and User Interface (UI) consultant.
Since my youth, I have been working in the service industry (due to my family which were all entrepreneurs in the fashion industry with several boutiques) and I developed a strong empathy for the needs of customers and colleagues. This sensitivity, for what customers want and need, grew stronger during my years as an eventmanager.
One of my main personal interests is communication and I attend different Meetups in Berlin to discover new methods tp improve my skills on this field. I’m also a member of the Berlin Toast Masters Group in which we explore subjects like speaking in public.
A clear, transpaent, respectful and empathic way of communication is the base of a good togetherness in which people feel safe, respected and appreciated.
At the moment, I’m working as a Product Owner in a software company in Berlin.
