I am one of the proud founders of Wepublic and get a lot of energy from the fact that I am both an entrepreneur and a trusted advisor.
As a consultant I focus primarily on reputation, corporate communication and (social) leadership challenges.
Organizations I work for are often confronted with difficult issues or strategic changes and their leadership very often has inspiring ambitions. Executives also seek my advice when they want to build excellent communication departments or develop winning communication strategies.
In my previous function als associate partner at strategic consulting firm Boer & Croon I have developed myself in the fields of (structured) problem solving, business focused thinking, and managing complex projects.
I like to write about reputation management and the role and added value of the communications function. For example, together with Betteke van Ruler I wrote the book The Strategic Communication Frame that will also be published in the US in 2019. In this book, we introduce a practical method for strategy development. Previously I published a book about strategic issues management.
In addition to my work for clients, I am the coordinator for the EACD in the Netherlands and I am a board member at the business club of the Cobra museum for modern art. I am on the Central participation council of the Koningin Emma school in Bussum and the Joint participation council of Talent Primair.
On Saturdays I play as a striker for one of the most beautiful clubs in the Netherlands: AFC. I am also an avid supporter of Ajax and I am happy (but not very successful …) on the golf course. I live with Caroline who is an MD at VUMC and I am the proud father of two sons.
