About Dirk

Key Experiences

From programming to running large transformation projects
There are three influential moments in my career from which I learned the most thusfar, the first step was to take on a project in Mexico for six months.
Working in a different culture and setting pushed me out of my comfort zone which is a great place to be in to learn in my opinion. On my return I made internal transfer from programming towards Delivery Management, since programming was not the part I got my energy from.
Although once my career counselor said it is a good starting point to have in your career, because it helps you get into a certain mindset and that has turned out to be correct. The next step was joining the Dutch Works Council, a professional team in which I learned a lot in regards to the companies perspective, but also what a great team can accomplish. All aspects helped me in my daily work transforming clients to the new ways of working that are around today.
