About me

In 2019, I joined forces with Generous Minds because you can achieve so much more together. Teamwork makes the dream work. The change in the world I would like to see is that impact businesses dominate economies everywhere and that companies that put profits before the planet eventually die out. My contribution to this vision is to help social enterprises internationalize. Scaling their impact from local to global. Turning do-gooders into do-gooders! I have been working internationally myself since 1994 and I enjoy few things more than speaking other languages, getting to know new cultures and bridging the cultural differences that exist in international business and forging successful partnerships. But that's not all I do....

I'm also a member of the Generous Money team, which helps social enterprises find the right investors. A very different field from internationalizing but certainly with similarities: you help find the right partner, try to bridge the differences between entrepreneur and investor and forge successful partnerships. When that succeeds, I cheer as loudly as the entrepreneur I got to know well during that whole process and whose impact I know is very good.
