I started my working career as a trainee at a bank after several years as a law student in Leiden. After several jobs in and out of this bank, I started as a pension and insurance specialist. Later I switched over to a small private bank and became manager at their insurance company. During my period in the financial industry I found out that my real passion is working together with people. I was really interested in what drives people and what makes them successful. I also learned from my colleagues that I was good at coaching and energizing them. I realize that I had to do something with that passion, so I started the MMS Coach training.
Since a few years now I have been active as a Career coach, an Executive coach and as a Team coach. With my long time experience, both as an employee, an entrepreneur and a manager, I hope that I can help people to find their passion and purpose in life and let them realize that we all have talents.
My vision and mission
After I got out of service at the bank I learned that it is very difficult for people who are fifty plus and lose their job to find a new one. Also a lot of people who have this age lose their motivation to do their work.
I can help those people by vitalizing them. Important is find out what your strengths are and not emphasize what your weaknesses are. Focus on your talents and get them even better. Believe in yourself, don’t always compare with others. You are unique and show it. Age is an advantage, not a disadvantage! Also when you are 50+ there are a lot of things you can achieve and I will help and support you to reach those goals.
