Once you a time, there was a man who liked to make up stories. He liked it so much he did it all the time.
When he heard people talking, he would imagine what they meant and why they said it. When he saw clouds in the sky, he imagined rain coming.
Very often, he was the hero of his own stories. When the characters he had invented spoke to him, he would make up replies to advance his plot. With the fear of rain, he would carry an umbrella. Sometimes he got what he wanted and would call it a good story. Sometimes, he got wet and called it a bad story.
One day, he hit his head and lost his ability to make up stories.
All of a sudden, there were no more characters and he was no longer the hero. There was no more plot and no more story. Nothing was good or bad anymore. There was only the truth.

For the last 17 years, I have been helping businesses and individuals to achieve their goals through delivery of tailor-made learning and development initiatives.
Most of the time, I deliver training, coach individuals, facilitate brainstorming sessions, round-table meetings and workshops.
As a consultant, I help my clients to promote and profit from the infinite learning opportunities within and without their own organisation, drawing on my L+D management experience, strategic approach and creativity,
As a speaker, I inspire through story, humour and pertinent little bits of theory.
I believe that the world would be a better place if people were happily working on their mission with competence and alignment to personal values.
As a freelance worker since 2008, I have helped more than 11000 individuals to improve their presentation, communication, commercial, leadership and negotiation skills.
I confront people with their own behaviour and convictions, facilitating and giving pertinent feedback and clear ideas on where to continue good work and improve.
I seek to satisfy my clients with creative and to-the-point solutions…
…and I make music, but no-one pays me much for it yet :-)
