Partners, Networks, Communities of Practice
A cornerstone of my services is to leverage the skills and resources of highly professional consultants and agencies with long-standing reputation. I greatly enjoy networking and often collaborate internationally and multi-disciplinary. My strong believe is that joining efforts makes it possible to better reach shared goals and visions.
Below you will find a selection of people who I have worked with on past assignments and who greatly inspired my thinking – Thank you! Listed are also some of the communities of practice and networks I participate in and value as rich resources.
Should you like to connect to me or my partners – to exchange ideas, request our services or simply to join our network – please do not hesitate to get in contact.
