About me

I am looking forward to hearing from you per e-mail or telephone +49 (0)151 28126047.




Intercultural understanding and misunderstanding – it is the most fascinating subject in the world. As a dutch scholar and student I spent several years in Japan. Then, I worked as a change manager and consultant in a management development organisation and I began to understand that any one group (culture) of people works differently from any other. As of 2009, I live and work in Berlin.

I believe it is extremely valuable, to always anew start and persist in a continuous dialogue about how we want to work together as individuals from different backgrounds. It is in this field that I am of most value to my customers. Fluent language skills in Dutch, Japanese, English and German top off my effective and sustainable mediation.
