Expertise

I have more than 15 years of consulting experience in a broad range of industries… banking, energy, retail, production,…. I worked for big consulting firms, smaller consulting companies till I finally started my own company. 

I’m a Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) Trainer and been training professionals in Belgium and The Netherlands. 

I also have the ITIL v3 certificate and project management experience. 

My strength is my broad knowledge.

 

My Story

 

After getting my degree Industrial Engineering ICT I started my career in a bank as a Tandem mainframe tester. Which wasn’t really my thing so I moved to Accenture to work at the IT support. I really loved it as I could provide support for everyone in the company from new joiners up to the partners. 

After a few years I went back to school, evening classes to obtain a Master in Economical Sciences. Combining this with full-time working as a consultant was not easy but I learned a lot. After a few years I graduated in Human Resources Management. During that time I also followed two years coaching course (up to PCC level). 

In 2014 I started as project manager at Delhaize, a big retailer in Belgium where I was teamlead of a Scrum Team. Since then I never looked back and since then worked always in an Agile environment as Scrum Master and Agile Coach. i worked for big companies like BNP Paribas Fortis, Nationale Nederlanden, Argenta, Sberbank (Russia), Belfius, Fluvius,… During those assignments I worked with 1 up to 3 teams, depending on the client. 

I love expanding my knowledge and never stop learning new skills like Design Thinking, Agile Scaling, Facilitation,… 

Since a few years I deliver different trainings in the Agile field. 

What I like the most is coaching people and organizations. Design new organization structures, thinking about how teams can be structured the best and how they can work together. 

In 2020 I started to create my own online training. More info soon 🙂
