Working in IT consultancies in both the Netherlands and the UK, I have gained experience in a number of different companies and different sectors and have developed a highly flexible skillset. From a background in document management, content management and workflow to now specialising in SharePoint based solutions and business development.
Working in an industry that is always changing, with so much new technology, it is important to keep up with new developments. My blog started as a way of expressing my views on technology, but has now reached explosive levels. Seeing the growth of followers and knowing that people were interested in my insights and opinions pushed me forward. It has resulted in my views being noticed by Microsoft and I have achieved their ‘Most Valued Professional’ accolade or MVP for office servers and services - a career highlight
Delivering the impossible in the client’s eyes by providing effective technology solutions to a problem they knew they had, but didn’t know how to solve is extremely satisfying.
I am extremely active within the SharePoint, PowerApps, Flow and Teams communities. I am a member of the Microsoft Teams Elite Team and also a member of the Flow Pro Crew.
Technology is my main inspiration in life but I also love sport. I have been coaching Korfball, the Dutch version of basketball, for over 25 years and with a number of clubs across the UK I am able to continue playing.
