Profile Information

How did you learn about Art of Hosting (please add the date and place) and what attracted you to it?
By an instigator of the teal movement in Belgium, I learned about Art of Hosting. I contacted him through LinkedIn because I thought maybe we could mean something for eachother. I wanted to start my own Semler Consultancy and he mentioned I should check out Teal. I was enthousiastic and later he mentioned I should join the 3day training in AoH. I checked it out, had a beautiful experience, and and here I am. :)
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)
Art of Hosting is something I use in my everyday life to have more meaningful conversations with my peers. I especially use it at an NGO in Houten which uses self-management principles to help people who lost their job to get back on their feet. I have just started so I am quite new to this work.
What is the primary field/topic/focus in your hosting work?
My primary focus is the Circle Practice, World Cafe, Open Space and Design for Wiser Action.
Where do you live/work?
Are there interests/passions that you'd like to share?
My passion and purpose in life is to be one of the catalysts for helping the current world shift over to the new world that is becoming. My mission is to get things set up as soon as possible and get started!
