About me

Apart from several years of scientific research, I have spent my entire working life working for commercial companies in and around healthcare. I started in sales, and progressed through various roles to marketing, people management and later to strategy development. I have learned an incredible amount from the complex field of healthcare, and our current healthcare system. I also learned a lot about the innovations that are needed to continue to provide high-quality care, not only now, but also in the future. I now use all this knowledge and experience to support small and large organizations in and around healthcare in defining their unique contribution to healthcare.

I am also a member of the Central Expert Panel of ICHOM ( to help them define their best route to creating value for patients. And as an expert in the field of strategy, transformation and Value Based Healthcare (VBHC), I am regularly asked as a speaker or for interviews or podcasts on these topics. Finally, I am a member of the governance board of a large organization for elderly care and have a seat in their committee for quality, safety & innovation.

When we will work together you will notice that I am a fast concept thinker with strong analytical skills. Through a helicopter view I can separate main issues from side issues and provide focus and direction. Together we will take a step-by-step look at the challenge you face, in which I will be both visionary and roll up my sleeves and get to work.

If this appeals to you, just contact me, maybe I can support you or your organization?
