Bio Summary

I love working with organizations and take people on a journey to become the best version of themselves. My purpose? Leading people successfully through change. Simply put, I act as the conduit between strategy and execution.

In today’s world, the pace of change has never been this fast with entire industries being disrupted by the emergence of new technologies, forcing organizations to quickly rethink structures, ways of working and operating models. While many companies proudly claim their people are their biggest asset, 15 years of global business transformation experience and managing change have taught me 3 things:

. Many organizations (large and small) tend to focus on the WHAT at the expense of the HOW, resulting in low acceptance levels, limited engagement and resistance to change . People resist change because they believe they will lose something of value or fear they will not be able to adapt to the new ways. . To lead people through a change journey, it has to start with YOURSELF

In my career, I have:

. Supported established and fast growing organizations through transformational change without having a formal authority . Gained global experience of operational and organizational change in operational consulting, FMCG and Technology industries . Built robust cross-functional capabilities to effectively deliver sustainable change and produce superior business outcomes (online and offline)

. Mentored individuals around career and personal development

My trademark?

. A sound understanding of business strategy and how to make people buy into it through trust . Active listening skills and high EQ . Inclusive and empathetic leadership style supported by highly effective communication and influencing skills . Ability to break down silos, seek cross-functional optimization and unlock efficiencies . Growth mindset and keen interest in personal development
