As a scientist by training, analytical and rational ways of thinking, structured procedures are second nature to me - even more exciting and challenging it was and still is for me to work with and for people. I am passionate about supporting the BRAIN organization on its growth trajectory, to help shape a Biobased future and to ensure that we, quoting Sir R. Branson, “train people well enough so they can leave; treat them well enough so they don't want to”.
