I am a passionate consultant with more than fifteen years of experience working in software development, fulfilling almost every conceivable role. Throughout my career, I've coached and mentored 30+ product teams and their leadership in an international setting. I've had the luxury of assisting and guiding some of the Dutch larger corporate's embarking on their agile transformation as consultant to leadership and provoking a transformation in their subsequent operating model. As the first licensed Scrum.org trainer within Shell staff, I deliver Scrum.org certified training, specifically the Professional Scrum Master course (PSM-I), and the Professional Scrum with Kanban course (PSK-I). I specialize in Scrum Mastery, Advanced Team Dynamics, Product Development and I am a accredited Solution Oriented Coach, aligned with NOBCO (Dutch Order of Professional Coaches).
When I'm not coaching teams during the weekdays, I tend to actually coach teams on the weekend ;-) I'm an accredited ""Youth Soccer Coach"" at the Royal Dutch Soccer Association (JVTC) and act as a coach / trainer with the soccer team of my eldest son, so much fun to do!

Learning to understand different perspectives within complicated systems allows us to create sustainable innovation; but the problem is it’s really hard to do.
