I am an experienced intranet adoption manager, having worked for about 10 years in an intranet role in a multinational company.

Of course I have experience with strategy and governance, policies and housekeeping, usability and design, and I have created communication, training and promotions for the intranet and related tools. I will share some of my learnings and experiences here. But I have also streamlined inefficient business processes with help of Microsoft SharePoint Team Sites.

Originally I am a Food Technologist but during my career I moved into the intranet and Digital Workplace field, and I have never looked backI live in Utrecht, The Netherlands, and my native language is Dutch.

Experiences and views are my own.
