As a mentor I provide entrepreneurs with insight and guidance, drawing from over 20 years’ experience in advising, consulting and coaching individuals and teams. I’ll keep you motivated and focused through the challenges ahead. I’ll support you to develop your venture and help bring fresh vision and clarity to your ideas. I’ll work with you to evolve strategies and action plans that underpin a successful and powerful brand.

are you communicating?
I believe that everyone’s business dream can become a reality. Our sessions will energise you and boost your confidence – you’ll always leave with a backpack full of ideas and actions, ready to move forward. I work with individuals and small teams, in both new startups and emerging and transforming businesses.
In a free one-hour consultation, we discuss your needs and the way I can support you. Mentoring sessions can take place face-to-face in my office in Riehen (Basel-Stadt) or in Amsterdam, where my remote office is based. I also hold mentoring sessions via Skype. Additional support is available via email.
Follow your dream, live your passion. Go for it! I get energized when I can support people to make their dream a reality; to get them out of their comfort zone and allow them to do things they have never done before; to see them grow by running their own company; to challenge them to get the most out of themselves and their business.
Like Pippi, my journey has had its ups and downs. I have fallen many times, stood up and fallen again before achieving my ambitions. Through these experiences I have learnt to follow my heart, to do what I enjoy the most. ‘No’, ‘not possible’ and ‘can’t do’ hardly exist in my language.
I have over 20 years’ experience in the communications business in the UK, Holland and Switzerland and have run my own company since 2010.
