About / Bio
Throughout my life I have been interested in what the future holds. As a student I was involkved in future modes of urban transportation. During my career in an airline, The future of aircrafthandling at an airport spurred my interest and imagination. When I got involved in IT in the \'80\'s, as a consultant, I developed my first scenario\'s involving technological developments as nano-technology, artificial intelligence and virtual reality. Sometimes not taken too seriously. When hearing about a development, I automatically tend to draw a picture in my mind where I include the development and it\'s possible repercussions or influense on society ofr organizations.
Skills and expertise
On the one hand I use my analytical talents to address problems from a concetual perspective. On the other hand, my imagination helps me to include new ideas into a broader picture. That is where my interest into developing scenario\'s comes into play. When scanning the internet or other media, my eye always catches new developments and automatically I try to assess the future impact. During my assignments in my role as a management consultant, I naturally confront my clients with what is evolving from the future or even hardly visible yet from \'around the corner\'. One can associate this with lateral thinking. geme
