I'm an independent women, born and raised in The Hague. My roots lie both in the Netherlands as in Indonesia as the eldest daughter of an Indonesian father and a Dutch mother.
I have worked in the financial services since 1995, both at insurance companies and banks as a leader in marketing & sales and HR divisions.
As a leader I am excellent in building long term strategies in a profit organization, where change and transformation are needed. But most of all I challenge people to explore and use their potential! Just by starting who you are and what you can offer the world.
Strategic and servant leadership
Change management strategy (people and organization);
Building high performing teams in transition;
Board collaboration, dynamics and coaching.
In non-executive roles I advise start- and scale ups in HR-tech and Fin-tech-companies.
People know me as both a critical challenger who inspires people to give their best by using their talent at the most: No act, just be and C.
Since 2018 I’m chairman of the board of WIFS, Women in Financial Services NL. Our goal is to bring more balance to build a sustainable inclusiveness business, especially when it comes to the balance of masculine and feminine values.
I have studied economics in Rotterdam, followed an MBA Culture & Innovation and am an alumna of Harvard Business School.
I am married to Richard and we have 3 wonderful boys, Jay Dean & Glenn.
The only limitation in life is our thinking, because I strongly believe if you can dream it, you can create and build it!
