Meet your








Global. Active. Focused 


It's all about resonance

Life is a book with many chapters. Some of mine were written in beautiful European cities, some in Singapore with Malay songs playing in the background, others thousands of feet above ground, on one of my trips around the world.

A substantial part of my expertise is rooted in these personal experiences and what they taught me – combined with my knowledge of economics and business, as well as my own leadership roles in various industries. Last but not least, it’s an outcome of my intense work with great leaders: impressive women and men who accepted the challenge of leading the way for others, always determined to give their best and to grow.

My practice is built on a genuine interest in people and a passion for performance. My client relationships are based on trust: As an advocate and ally to leaders and their teams, I help them make a difference.

In 25 years, not only have I grown older and wiser, but have been also able to collect valuable learnings and amazing stories in my role as a leader, wife, mother, friend and daughter. Some of them written from the peaks of success and others from valleys of painful lessons. Together they have shaped who I am today, and the work I do.
