    FEEDBACK REALLY IS A GIFT

    When the world went into lockdown in March last year, 26-year-old Syan Sitalsing and her family were worried they wouldn’t have the chance to see each other anymore.

Unfortunately, though, neither Sammy-Jo Heijdra nor her older brother did. However, what Sammy-Jo does seem to have in her genes is creativity. “My creativity is one of my expressive outlets.

    CHANGE IS THE ONLY CONSTANT IN LIFE

    Few experiences are more satisfying to Mechiel Wilbrink than driving home after a workshop with a client that yielded a collaborative breakthrough. Unfortunately, in this remote working-dominated age of COVID-19, driving to and from clients is no longer an option. “I miss the real-life connection with clients and co-workers greatly.  Connecting with people is part of what drives my love for my work – so much so that I sometimes find myself wanting to just reach through the computer screen during virtual meetings.

    The army taught me some of life's most valuable lessons

    When her Dutch uncle told her he had a spare room available in his new house, Israeli-born Danielle Elhayani (26) didn’t think twice: she packed her bags and was on a plane to the Netherlands two weeks later. Fast forward six years, and she is completely settled in and accustomed to the ‘Dutch way’. “I feel Israeli and Dutch at the same time.”

    Preaching agile all the way

    Science or technology: which one was it going to be? It took a while before Gijs van Malsen (30) knew the answer to that question. Today, he applies technology and the agile approach not only in his work as IT Transformation Consultant, but also in his personal life.

    The challenge-seeking deal junkie

    Babiche Veenendaal was traveling in Thailand with her family when she felt an intense pain in her chest. It was a heart attack. She had to prioritize her 'me-time'. However, she argues 'How does someone forget what they love doing?’

    Opportunities are there to be taken

    'As managing director, I set the bar high: some people even think I’m just a bit too ambitious. But I want to get the most out of anything I’m doing. Opportunities are there to be taken; happiness needs to be won'. This is the portrait of Nicole van Det, Managing Director Products.
