'Do believe you can what you want'

My work involves providing guidance to executive boards, managers, professionals and management teams, particularly during changes in strategy, organisational design or organisational culture. I also mediate in the event of conflicts. And I specialise in setting up and implementing Management Development and development programmes for the management echelons in organisations and for professionals.

'Advice and Entrepreneurship'

I have worked as an organisational consultant since 1982. I qualified as an occupational and organisational psychologist at VU University Amsterdam. After several years as an associate partner at the Holland Consulting Group, I left to join CORDES in 1987. I am a Certified Management Consultant (CMC) and member of the Dutch Institute for Management Consultants (Ooa).


'Horses are my passion’

They're more than a hobby now. Besides practising the sport (dressage), a stallion breeder and I have around 20 horses. This activity, like my work, also involves a quest to find the highest quality. Every now and then I combine my work and private life. More info: www.dantesportpaarden.nl
