On my blog you can find some stories about my work, concrete examples, video’s and pictures. Below a good old fashioned non exhaustive list of organisations and people I have been working with in the last few years, and a short description of the work I’ve done.

If you want to have some more background on my work as a trainer, coach and facilitator, you’ll find it here.

And here’s the place where you can read more about ceremony and celebration.
