Dear Graduates and Friends of Newfield Asia,
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you. I am truly honored and feel excited to lead Newfield Asia. I believe Newfield Asia has established a solid foundation over the last few years and now it is time to take it to the next level. I feel privileged to take on this challenge together with you.
My professional background has been a combination of business and coaching. After my masters in Economics, I worked as a management consultant at PricewaterhouseCoopers and I headed the marketing department of T-mobile. As I became more and more passionate about developing people I decided to re-focus my career and co-founded a successful professional training and coaching company in the Netherlands. Since moving to Asia I have been working as a leadership development trainer and executive coach. What has always driven me and is closest to my heart is to unlock people’s potential in order to create positive impact and sustainable results.
Let’s face it, we all live in times where our personal and professional leadership is becoming more important. I believe that what we all ultimately value in life is not that different, and we need to work to a more compassionate world where everyone takes accountability for the planet and all the people who live on it. What is needed is to fundamentally shift the way we, individually and collectively, see, be and act in the world and that is why I have stepped into Newfield Asia. Our suite of programs is grounded in a rigorous and substantive Ontological framework. Ontology is the study of ‘being’ and we teach this powerful approach with Somatics, Emotions and Language in an experiential manner that ensures learning is both profound and enjoyable.
In over 20 years working in business and coaching across Europe and Asia, I have not encountered a leadership and coaching development program that is so integrated, holistic and cutting edge. I believe we have an opportunity to develop the best managers, leaders, coaches, doctors, teachers, professionals, parents and so much more. Our multicultural team of coaches and trainers draws on decades of experience and I believe together, with you, we can have a profound impact on the world.
I look forward to working closely together with you to make this happen in Asia and beyond.
