Why Core & Company?

At Core & Company I can live my passion for developing, challenging and moving individual people, teams and organizations and the way they are organized, develop, learn and stay motivated and strongly performing in a rapidly changing world.

Being a team player by heart, I practice and share the co-creative and collaborative approach that is Core & Company’s trademark. I am privileged to have the opportunity to co-create and engage with ambitious, visionary, and passionate clients, colleagues and partners in making valuable, innovative and relevant people and capabilities solutions that work in practice and in coherence with existing solutions.

I enjoy challenging my own assumptions and traditional ways of working while designing and developing new solutions to complex business problems. At Core & Company, this is to me at the heart of what we do, being changemakers constantly trying to challenge traditional thinking and find new paths to explore hand-in-hand with our clients.
