My professional background
In 1978, I became an ordained Verbi Divini Minister (V.D.M.) in the Netherlands for my ministries both inside and outside the church in the fields of development cooperation, education and science, administration, and corporate services. Almost 38 years later, my ordination has been reconfirmed in the United States. During that period, I had completed my advanced education in church ministry and management, but also my postgraduate studies in philosophy and business administration with a minor in corporate finance.
Facilitator in corporate finance and real estate
Since mid-2011, my ministries focus exclusively on serving (groups of) people and society. From that time, I’m an independent entrepreneur in business and finance. I focus on facilitating global intermediaries in capital sources, between capital seekers and capital providers, and real estate for businesses and institutions, as well as other corporate services. First from the Dutch media city Hilversum, and later from Amsterdam Zuidas, the financial center of the Netherlands. (You can find more information on the webpage ‘Services‘.).
(Freelance) auctor and educator
After a few years, I wanted to resume the practice of science that I practiced as a lecturer. This time as a writer for everything related to humanities and social sciences. Mid-2017, I wrote my first articles and a guide to good governance. Soon I received my first assignments for drafting documents for compliance and rules in corporations, and editing grant applications before they are submitted to governments. That is why I’m also available as a (freelance) auctor. (You can find more information on the webpage ‘Publishing‘.) To share my knowledge, and own experiences, as an entrepreneur, and (non-)executive, I started my online learning services in 2019. I discuss cases in the field of practical management, as well as personal issues, about what people want to know. (You can find more information on the webpage ‘Academy‘.)
“Failure is success in progress” (Albert Einstein)
Entrepreneurs are constantly looking for solutions and alternative ways or doing everything. And crucially, an entrepreneur doesn’t give a damn about failure because s/he knows that failure is in fact, discovery. Some entrepreneurs stated, “The only way I will know if something works is doing it and that means doing what seems impossible or unlikely.” Entrepreneurs are comfortable with failure, almost enjoying it, of course as far as clients are not disadvantaged. This is because every experience, positive or negative, even a bankruptcy, tells us something. If we are working in a specific area of expertise, corporate finance, real estate, for example, our experiences of doing will become a rich mixture of interconnected successes and failures. I have experienced it myself in my intermediary business.
Unbiased, professional advice and support.
Those experiences are involved in my expertise as a professional in business and finance. The result is that I’m able to give unbiased, professional advice and support that is always in the best interest of my clients.
More than 100 assignments have been completed on a freelance basis for small and medium-sized businesses, investment banks and funds, informal investors, intermediaries in corporate finance and real estate, accounting and consulting firms, (health) care and educational institutions, denominations, as well as associations and foundations for the general benefit.
