Tjeerd R.

Summary

Personal motto
I want to bring organizations and people together to have them collaborate and make them operate more efficiently and effectively which will result in sustainable, social and economic growth for all.

Background
I have always been working at the interface of private and public organizations in the Netherlands and East-Africa. In this way I have experienced the differences between these kind of organizations in their drive, the way they approach their markets and customers, and their culture and attitude. Thus, I know about their specific interests and priorities and how to align these with one another within partnerships.
