I’m greatly interested in technology, leadership and strategy. Especially, how these topics can influence and benefit organizations. For example, what’s the impact of disruptive technology on macro economic situations? Therefore, I regularly visit large international events to discover new technological developments and to keep my knowledge up to date. Besides my interest in technical solutions, I also visit various leadership summits (ie VMware PLS), I am a member of several advisory boards and I regularly visit tech leaders to share information and to mutually learn. I strongly believe power is gained by sharing knowledge, not hoarding it ;-)
A few of the events and conferences I’ve attended: Hack In The Box
(Amsterdam and Kuala Lumpur), VMware Partner Exchange (PEX) San Francisco, VMware User Group (VMUG) NL, vForum NL, VMworld (Europe and USA), OHM, HAR, System Centre University (SCU) Basil. Occasionally, I am a speaker on various events and I have been a member of various jury’s for example HackWEEKDAY, where students develop new solutions for Facebook and Mozilla, thus giving these companies an opportunity to look for new employees.
With all this information and my day to day experience, I wrote some blogs. You can read them below!
