After studying communication sciences at the VUB and political science at the “Institut d’études Politiques” in Bordeaux, I started my professional career as a marketer at Corelio. Each day a new paper, each day a new action. The adrenaline was flowing.
Personal events made me search again. Search for more, more depth. And that is how my company Switches was founded in 2000. A new passion. A passion that led me to projects at home and abroad for clients such as Philips, AXA, Randstad,…
My clients describe me as a special mix between ‘hard’ and ‘soft’, passionate and sometimes stubborn… a bit mysterious also. I might be confronting but always involved with the people and organizations I’m guiding.
In my work as a trainer I use different methods/tools, depending on the situation. I’m certified in MBTI (I and II), Firo-B, Insights, metaprofile, OPQ, … and I make use of methods from various ‘schools’ (NLP, solution focused approach, provocative coaching, radical collaboration, mindfulness…).
I work in Dutch, French and English.
And besides work…
… I live in the beautiful “Pays des collines”, an extension of the Flemish Ardennes, together with my husband and “the mistress of the house”, our black cat. Walking is a healthy addiction and I keep my back and mind flexible thanks to yoga. Travelling is another passion, which helps me to distance myself literally and figuratively, and to continue realizing what a “lucky girl” I am.
