My aim and belief
I do believe we have the opportunity to built the digital infrastructure for our next level of prosperity. It is my aim to connect business to the appropriate infrastructure, because I want to take the high road.
Where do I come from ?
I have had my experience as an entrepreneur in the recruitment business for IT professionals and business consultants. I started my own recruitment agency when the internet was getting introduced in the business world.
As an economist with a passion for prosperity, people and marketing I began to integrate the new e-communication tools towards clients and candidates. But I realised that I was operating in a market model with wicked problems. I gathered a lot of privacy data but the common digital tools, awareness and knowledge were missing to adapt processes to new realities.
I realised patterns were the same in several domains. And since I have a passion for the changing times we are living in, I started to craft, share and network for solutions. The monopolistic data economy was evolving and it isn’t something we can’t afford ourselves and children. It harms our dignity, freedom and creativity as conditions for prosperity while a better prosperity is an option.
Crafting a way out for wicked problems together with co-designers
We can do far better by giving control over personal data to individuals. I have developed governance models for an appropriate digital infrastructure (we share), I have emerged myself in new organisational thinking and design and developed value propositions and partnerships for co-design.
Since 2014 I am partner of Weconomics Foundations. I collaborated with them for building awareness about new organisational opportunities, shared digital infrastructure and co-design. Since 2017 I am an ambassador for ThreeFold Foundation (which is connected to www.gig.tech).
I work together with Earthways to set up events, workshops and facilitate e-Co-design programs within organisations.
