Speaker at 'Welcome into the Awesome conference'

  June 2021

I shared my story on 'How to integrate art with people development', a topic I’m extremely passionate about.

I’m so grateful for the opportunity to connect with all the wonderful people and learn from other speakers too, who shared really interesting perspectives related to L&D. I absolutely loved it!

What I took away from this experience:
🌟  I’m deserving and capable of doing amazing things.
🌟 There are always wonderful people who genuinely care to support and guide me through my journey.
🌟  Stepping out of my comfort zone can only help me move forward!

Self Development session (2021) 

                                                                                                            'Time Management'

I hosted a one hour online time- management workshop to share some tips and tricks on how to manage time for yourself as well as all the urgent/ important tasks that are on everyone's list. I introduced a few exercises where the participants were able to reflect and discuss their ideas and insights with each other, to keep the workshop interactive and meaningful.  

Learning Objectives:

- How to prioritise tasks using the Urgent Vs Important Matrix

- How much time does a person spend on themselves vs their other daily routine tasks

- How can we use our free time in a more effective way

Expat Academy, The Netherlands (2021) 

In collaboration with Joep van Deutekom and Grace of the Expat Academy NL, I'm working on creating a online training course to support expats in The Netherlands. The course is related to 'Socialising in The Netherlands' and was launched in January 2021.

Aim of the training program: To help expats in The Netherlands to integrate better in the society. The course consists of online videos, assignments, and a one on one LIVE session with me personally, where we can go over your assignments and you can ask me any questions you have about networking, making friends, volunteering or other socialization topics.

Vanderlande Industries, The Netherlands (2018)

'Project work: Learning and Development project consultant member' 

  • Analysed and identified steps undertaken in the change process, i.e., change agents, roles, responsibilities. 

  • Communicated how change processes are perceived by different groups within the organisation. 

  • Developed action plans and recommendations on how to introduce and implement changes. 


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.
