"My purpose and my passion is to create experiential/experimental learning environments and spaces where leaders, teams, and individuals can find the inspiration they need to explore new ways of thinking and doing. My approach is cross-disciplinary, cross-cultural, art-inspired, aesthetic, sensual, sensitive as well as pragmatic and practice-driven."

"We are global and technology-driven; yet the future of work and education is interactive, human, and hybrid. As a sparring partner, I support leaders, visionaries, and teams in rethinking their approach to learning, working, and (well-)being. As President of Poetry in Business, I help people and organisations leverage the power of imagination. After all, it's about putting human qualities at the heart of business; technology will support us."
