My Story

My first job was with KLM Royal Dutch Airlines as an administrative intern.
In total I had 3 jobs there. The last one being the most fun and most interesting: I was a Marketing & Sales Consultant. Travelling to pretty much every corner of the world helping KLM colleague's achieve their targets.
In the mean time I went back to school. I studied and got my Masters degree in Psychology from the University of Amsterdam in 6 years doing evening school. I enjoyed every minute of it.

The combination of study and travel didn't bother me. I was working with different cultures and expanding my knowledge on what makes people tick in organisations.

In 1999, after 12 years with KLM, I decided it was time for a change.
That change was a good choice because the company I was working for had a group of people all working on Intercultural Management.
I had done my University thesis using the work of Professor Geert Hofstede, and now was able to work with it too. Awesome!

In 2007 I started the company Culture Matters. I wanted to fully focus on Cultural Awareness Training and have been doing so ever since.

With the Internet all around us and the ongoing globalisation I think it is of absolute importance to be Culturally Competent when you're working Internationally.
Fortunately these skills can be learned. The good thing is that with proper Cultural Awareness Training everybody "gets it".
I find that a promising thought.

I am passionate about giving Cultural Awareness Training and am sure I will be for years!
