I am immensely proud of my successes in organizational transformations that have been built on empowerment and inclusion of all involved. The input of diverse minds make such solutions inevitably better, and of course, the change is more profound and longer lasting.

I am a result-oriented entrepreneur with international corporate experience in Risk, Operations and Quality Management in the Financial Services Industry. I develop pragmatic road maps for change and ensure delivery as a strong strategic thinker with the ability to create buy-in across all organizational levels. I am passionate about creating the kind of workplace that inspires people to give their best.

Leading diverse and multi-disciplinary teams in financial services helped me build up a strong track record in people and stakeholder management. With Six Sigma (GE-certified MBB), Lean and Change methodologies, I have built and managed project portfolios, quality programs and large change initiatives.

My experience with Enterprise Risk Management and Risk Culture gave me the opportunity to develop a simple and effective approach to achieve the right balance between risks and opportunities.

An experienced speaker at international conferences

I have spoken at international conferences like Risk Minds (Brussels, Amsterdam, Nice and Barcelona), Insurance ERM (London), Impact International (Lake District) and Richmond Events (Interlaken), I love to engage and interact with audiences, when leading a panel or presenting a key note speech, and to leave people with a thought or nudge to take home.
