How did you learn about Art of Hosting (please add the date and place) and what attracted you to it?
Tatiana Glad made me aware of it begining of 2006 when I was organising a global conference at my work at the time. I had experienced Art of Hosting only once before but was very enthousiastic about this way of creating valuable conversations so I wanted to use if for my conference.
I took my first AoH training in Stroud, UK, February 2006.
Tell us about your experience with Art of Hosting as part of your life and work. What would you say your competence in it is? (new, starting practitioner, experienced practitioner, steward)
Ever since my first AoH I regularly host and go to AoH related gatherings. I consider myself an experienced practitioner. I am also one of the founders of the Art of Protection.
What is the primary field/topic/focus in your hosting work?
My primary focus is empowering people and making a difference by teaching physical thinking in the workplace. I integrate hosting in my work or use it seperately.

I live in The Netherlands, work there but also internationally.
