So, we know you’ve recently started to teach 23plusone’s seasonal schools. But on a more regular basis, what do you do?
I work on communication questions and safeguarding corporate identity of companies.  

And in your work: what are you most proud of? 
But what I am most proud of is actually transferring 23plusone onto others. I really love giving those workshops and working with that very method. I realize that that really strikes people. 

What do you think about pineapple on pizza?
Ugh, no. Not my thing.

If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be? 
That it would start spinning the other way around. Physically. I’d love to see what happens, whether people would start acting differently.


Who was your childhood idol? Are you (almost) there?
Olivia Newton John. I even named my youngest daughter after her. Later, Oprah Winfrey became my biggest idol, because I thought she was such an incredibly strong woman, and I wanted to be like that.

I don’t think I’m quite as much of a world improver as she is, but friends do often tell me they think I’m a very strong woman.


It’s almost Valentine’s Day and I need some inspiration. What is your idea of an ideal or most romantic date? 
Ehm, lot’s of gin tonics! Having a nice and cosy chat. It doesn’t have to be so grand and complicated.
