The circumstances change, the issues don’t. During my years as a teacher, manager and director, I redesigned learning programs with my team and my students. As a trainer and consultant I did the same in the companies I worked for. The question remained, ‘how to make transfer of learning happen?’
I amalgamate my work as director with speaking, chairing, coaching and hosting summits all over the world.
It’s all about teaching! In the Netherlands I set the agenda with an upcoming annual National Writing Contest (from 2005 till now) in combination with 2 books which deal with writing processes and writer’s block.
A second subject of particular interest is arguing and debating. I launched ‘how to influence’-courses (as of 2002) integrated with two books on arguing and debating. The third area I focus on is ‘boosting jobs and skills’. In 2011 I began a yearly national think-tank on the issue of sustainable employability and combined this with a book and several articles.
