I'm motivated by opportunities to drive growth, change or transformation.

Having worked within leadership, sales, and consultancy roles for the last 15+ years, I am available as an advisor, consultant, or Executive-as-a-Service to help companies find new sources for growth and execute strategic initiatives hands-on.

My specialties are:

✅ Digitalization and the disruptive opportunities it presents to companies and industries

✅ Leading growth and transformation

✅ Strategy and business model facilitation (e.g. Business Model Canvas, Lean Canvas, Design Sprint)

✅ Driving business value with emerging technologies (e.g. artificial intelligence, machine learning, cryptocurrencies, blockchain, augmented reality, mixed reality, internet of things)
