🌏Growing up as a Third-Culture Kid has provided me with a unique outlook on life, which has played a pivotal role in shaping the career path I have chosen.

🔸The gift of ‘Listening to Understand’
🔸Building a sense of community and a safe space for communication and exchange of ideas
🔸Importance of Business Development and sustainability

I worked with Vanessa while she did a consultancy/research assignment at Vanderlande. I got to know her as a person that is passionate about the field of learning, especially learning in complex organizations. She has an analytic nature and has strong communication skills. Because of her professional and discrete attitude, I felt very comfortable to let her conduct interviews in the organization independantly. Vanessa and the team delivered a very insightful and usable report.
