1. Start with Why: Why did you agree to join the Exellys Advisory Board?

Joining the Exellys advisory board offers a great opportunity to co-create with a bunch of smart people and boost the growth of a new promising innovative company with a young spirit. The market space faces some particular challenges in the supply of IT talent with strong leadership skills, generation management and gender segregation.


2. Added Value: Which of your competencies & expertise will be most beneficial to Exellys?

Change leadership, HR operations, talent management, leadership development, executive coaching, developing a new human capital strategy, organisation development, as well as leadership experience in running virtual, international teams. I am happy to facilitate the team with my people management background, such as accelerating talent on the Grow Smart programme.


3. Chrystal Ball: If you’d imagine Exellys’ future development, what do you (like to) see (happening)?

Becoming the reference in the Benelux for high-potential innovative IT experts and young IT leaders.
Strengthening the ties and bringing depth in the CHRO customer relationship with the clients to create long term sustainable co-creative partnerships. 


4. Greatest Hits: Think about Exellys as a song.

The song I identify Exellys most with is "Empire State of Mind" by Jay-Z & Alicia Keys, because, the sky is the limit. When you believe in your dreams and act upon your purpose and plans, you will inspire others through your drive & passion. When these building blocks are in place the rest is a matter of execution and enjoyment.
