I focus on helping leaders, teams and businesses change and grow

Successful businesses of today and tomorrow need to be good at handling and driving change. The world is changing at an increasing rate and it’s critical to help all employees grow into leaders and self-motivated team members. Self-governance and an environment where people are autonomously motivated to do their best, is becoming the new way of running organisations. I am passionate about helping you build a future proof organisation inspired by some of the leading examples at the forefront of their industries. Leading businesses and high-performance teams is built by a combination of character, competence, trust and a strong vision.

My customers usually appreciate my mix of

Technical understanding & Business/Market development

Team development exercises & Individual coaching

Psychology & Philosophy

 NLP and mental training & A passion for extreme physical challenges

My ambition is to be like LAVA because it is full of energy, always moving and creates rock solid results and sometimes completely new islands. The individual letters in LAVA also encapsulates four pillars to build successful leaders, teams and individuals. Love, Attitude, Values and Ambition.
