I have been coaching persons and groups successfully for many years and started my own practice after completing a post BSc education in management coaching in 2009. In parallel I successfully passed exams for registered mediator, having completed a post BSc course at the Hoge School in Leiden.

Before I entered coaching, I worked in the music business. At Sony from 1989-2009, at Studer Switzerland (1984-1989) and at Polygram in the Netherlands (1979-1984)

From 2005 to 2009 I was a Director at Sony's European Headquarters in the UK, where I led the company's pan-European Home Video Marketing team with an annual sales budget of 500 million. Also, working on a separate corporate project, I co-founded and Vice-chaired the European Blu-ray Disc Promotions Group, a multinational cross-industry format promotion platform.

Before this, (1995-2009) I worked as Director Sony Europe in the Netherlands where I was responsible for new audio technology and formats and new business development.

Well the list goes on. From 92 to 95 I worked at Sony Corporate Headquarters in Tokyo, Japan, as the head (Ka-cho) of International Marketing business pro audio business.

Way back in 1984 I worked at Studer Revox in Regensdorf, Switzerland as Manager International Marketing and Product Planning. I started out my career as Manager of the Audio Engineering Department at Polygram in 1979.

And that pretty much sums up my working experience. My, where have the years goneā€¦
