I am the Founder of Tomorrow People Organization. I believe that our differences and diversity are the greatest resource our civilization has - from diversity of genes, to diversity of cultures, thoughts, perspectives and experiences - this has always been a foundation of our expansion and evolution, as individuals, as species and as civilization.. These values are in the founding philosophy of the Tomorrow People Organization and are incorporated in all of our programs.
As a Director of the Tomorrow People Organization, I actively participated in developing a number of academic conferences and study abroad programs across the world, on various topics such as: Education and Development, Poverty, Women’s Leadership, Spirituality and Psychology, Sustainable Development, Sexuality, Peace and Conflict Resolution, to name a few.
Encouraging to take the risk, to believe in their own ideas and also to work for a better community because if we have a better community, we will have a better country and a better world. I always had a strong understanding of how to get things done. As someone with a proven track record working in the public and business sector, I learned how to get things done in a simple, adaptable and flexible way.
Dedicated to change, no matter how small, believing that the key component of growth is inclusion and diversity. What I believe most is the random act of kindness.
Leadership and Entrepreneurship run through my veins. I have started and sold many businesses across the globe for over 20+ years now, leading global organizations as a COO, in 26 countries, and on leadership boards of NGOs with a global footprint & impact!
There is, and always has been, a passion that burns deep inside me to be a change agent, a thought leader, and to move the world forward. As a natural leader, I have always seemed to take charge, create an impact and support the growth of those around me.
Even though taking control might have come easy to me, I didn’t always have the tools, or at least understand and apply them. I understand the world differently, have empathy and an inner drive to create a culture and mindset shift, to get people out of their everyday complacency, or what the “norm” is, and step into a better version of themselves, in their life and business.
