As a process and project leader, I manage pioneering triple-helix projects to enable regional shared employment. These are complex transformations, due to the diverse interests, in which my process management and intervention skills come in handy. The creative interactive work forms that I deploy (partly online) come in handy to achieve social impact. With my broad experience in care, welfare, education, government and business, I make cross-sectoral connections and involve new groups.
