Stephan Verveen
De Coöperatieve Samenleving
About / Bio
As a father of three I am deeply committed to the development of capacities for articulating sustainable, coherent and actionable visions for the future. The experience I bring to the table stems from working in environments like startups, large multinational technology corporations, education, research and more. The common thread in my work is my passion for group interaction and the development of systems for shared learning & knowledge development 'at the edge'. My experience ranges from working in deeply technical roles to developing stakeholder ecosystems with engaging (online) communicative approaches. The projects I have worked on resulted in a very broad scope of interest and matching network. Building bridges is what I do.
