Don’t ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive and go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive

Other Relevant Experience
Prior to joining TPCLeadership, Annemijn worked as a Brand Manager for Nike Inc, being responsible for the Running and Women Sport Categories. She has worked and lived in several countries both in Europe (Czech Republic, France, Spain) and Africa (Malawi, South Africa), which has given her a good understanding of the cultural diversities and challenges in international organisations like Guidon and Oreel. She is Co-Author of the book ‘Babe, you got this. Het Werkboek’ (2018, Dutch) with coaching tips geared for female entrepreneurs. And often uses her learnings from her own sport career (sailing World Championships and cycling stages of the Tour de France) as a way to challenge her clients: the only barrier that stops you from achieving your goals is your mind.
