At the age of eighteen I started working for the broadcast industry as a writer and sound engineer. Now thirty years later it is still my passion to move people in a positive way. After the creative environment of audio visual production I was asked to strengthen the team of the Audio Visual Federation. This allowed me to build a network and to learn first hand from the captains of industry. I became a board member of several audio visual associations and an international representative for the industry.
Then I was asked to join the sales team of a software development company. My role was the business development of a new target market: the publishing industry. The company became a key player with software solutions for media companies. They pushed my ICT knowledge to a higher level and taught me everything there was to know about project management and database technology. Marketing at first was a job on the side however became my second true love. Then Lost Boys asked me to prepare its R&D department for independency.
At warp speed I learned to deal with investors and to develop business models that proved profitability from the start. Fortunately I was able to work with the world’s best team in interactive application development and concept creation. What followed was interim management and cross media consultancy. Always acting on the forefront of innovation and building bridges between creativity and technology. Also I am a frequently asked guest speaker on conferences and lecturer at several academies. And oh yes;
I studied Law with a specialization in Intellectual Property Rights.
Global network of professionals
We believe our formats should be involving and our solutions should be inspiring rather than just supportive. They should mirror their user’s enthusiasm, enabling them to stretch their creative powers. Our mission is to show you the stepping stones to success and in addition offer a wide spread network of added value technology partners.
Change does not happen accidentally, it has to be managed. Having a vision is not sufficient, it has to be implemented. Successful companies excel on a limited set of key performance indicators. The challenge is to have the competence and the creativity to put concepts into the context of the consumer. We call this our CQ.
