Business Alignment Innovation / Customer Experience Center at ING

Startupbootcamp Commerce Amsterdam Mentor

I have a long professional career in a Financial institute. Strong experience in Innovation, IT-operations, Channel services en project management. Key thing in my career is bringing people together and challenge talented young people to use their talent 100 percent.

Top 3 skills:

1. Add creative new views to an existing idea to help it improve
2. Strong drive to look at innnovation from the view of customer adoption
3. Help ideas to think beyond the first succes and to stay succesful on the long run.


The reason for me to become a mentor with start-up bootcamp is because I am interested in new thoughts and directions in al business. I like to help and challenge people to improve the customer experience but als keep an eye on the opertional constraints.
