Throughout my whole life, ‘people’ have been central to everything that I do. I enjoy interacting with others; when we understand each other’s worlds and inspire each other. Communicating and making a connection is part of my DNA. That’s my asset – I get along well with people. I studied something that focuses on “people”: physiotherapy.
During my advanced master programme at the VUB and KUL I learned to analyse movements and to understand body language. I acquired the necessary knowledge into setting up a personalised action plan in order to achieve pre-determined results. That was my initial basis to help people bring out the best in themselves.
Due to my enthusiasm and my way with words, after my studies I seized the opportunity to merge my medical background with various commercial positions. Sales and PR experiences taught me how important it is to make a good connection, create trust and actively listen to my discussion partner.
I call it ‘inspiring communication’ and since then I have learned more about it. I focused on communication training sessions, presentation techniques, image, non-verbal communication, camera training, sales, use of social media, humour, dynamics, voice techniques, etc.
I became aware that it is crucial to align all facets of communication. Doing this consequently gave people confidence in what I had to offer and it increased my impact … my ‘personal brand’ was born.
I enjoy it when I can inspire people and help them find the motivation in themselves to get started. That action brings them closer to who they really are and what they have to offer.
Today I coach and counsel others in a professional context. I teach others how to increase their impact, how to communicate powerfully and rousingly, how to create or optimise their personal brand and how to network efficiently.
I am proud that I make a living from my passion and I wish you the same!
