I am available to accept a new leadership position in Europe or Asia, either permanently (preferred) or on contract basis.
Over the years I have written about issues, commented on events, or simply shared stories which I hope are worth sharing. For example, while rebuilding this website, I came across a story of a seminar I attended at THiNK in 2012. The topic of the lecture was The anatomy of an pandemic by Prof. Ian Lipkin! My last line was prophetic “I cannot help but think we will hear of Dr Lipkin again…”. Amazing when you read that blog again in the current context, the reason I featured it on the home page again below.
Authors whose books I have enjoyed
Why do you show up even when it’s hard? That was the title of a recent Strava post trying to explain the atlete in you. Reflecting on challenging events is important to moving forward.

A couple of weeks ago, I had again joined the Tour de Tolerance, a group of cyclists eager to climb mountains.
In any business environment these days you almost invariably have all your data in different systems. A single ERP may be the driving force behind your organisation but having a monolithic system also limits you.
This is the reason I am very enthusiastic about Jamstack, a new standard architecture for the web.
I had heard of Madonna but never of Madonna del Ghisallo. The little chapel in her honour sits atop a steep hill (532m elevation, 10.6km, avg 5.2%, max 11%) that climbs up from the shores of Lake Como. It had been such a stopping point for cyclists that the local priest had proposed that Madonna del Ghisallo be declared the patroness of cyclists.
The Chinese word for crisis consists of two characters representing danger and opportunity respectively. Symbols of wisdom and extremely relevant with the current Covid-19 raging the world.
On 1 January 2016, the 17 sustainability Development Goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development officially came into force.
I had seen these goals and frankly thought of them as somewhat idealistic.
Like so often it seemed like a good idea at the time.
I was more than fed up with cycling in the Dutch cold and grey wintry conditions and needed to de-stress from work related issues. My son Daniel was meant to join but he needed his time to study. Or so he said, perhaps suspect of my intentions.
