With over 20 years of experience in IT and training, amongst which five years working for Microsoft in the Netherlands and Europe, Nancy has always and above all passionately focused upon people: how technology influences their behaviour, how it helps them to share knowledge and how it enables them to create and innovate.

loves to inspire you on...
The X factor of Customer Centricity
Over the past decades, focus on “experience” has grown dramatically. When considering products and services, emotions increasingly are the leading factor. Organizations have come to realize that, in an age where everything is available to everyone, customer centricity is key and experience has become the X factor.
Market Leadership in The Day After Tomorrow
Exponentially evolving technology is transforming the outside world like never before. The world of business, too, is changing at the same speed of light and leaders are having a hard time catching up and moving ahead to thrive in The Day After Tomorrow.
The Power of Artificial Intelligence
The Internet was the first wave, Mobile was the second, and now we are on Day Two of the next big wave: Artificial Intelligence. We are no longer able to imagine a world without the Internet, we will not be able to imagine a world without AI in just a few years from now. In order to prepare ourselves for this future, it is crucial to gain some understanding on the topic of AI.
Healthcare in The Day after Tomorrow – Patient Centricity is the Leading Game
Digital has become the New Normal. Mobile has become the New Normal. So have Big & Small Data, Artificial Intelligence and Networks. This keynote speech thoroughly demonstrates how these technological factors have largely affected human behaviour. Healthcare will be driven much more by consumers than physicians as the patient is taking control of his own health and his own treatment. In this hyperconnected world, any healthcare company needs to become agile and adopt a fluid strategy.
Nothing is more important to us than our health, and it will be the healthcare sector that is going to be redefined completely by technology.
For me, the real power of a nexxworks tour is the unique group of people you meet and travel with.
The tour founded relationships with interesting people I otherwise would've never met.
The mix of speakers and content was perfect.
It was truly an eye-opening experience that both enriched my network with amazing people and helped me shape the further direction of my career.
The things you hear, see and learn are a source of inspiration and motivation for the future. We have already implemented some of these in our current strategy and operations.
Nexxworks helps to facilitate innovative out of the box thinking. They will expose you and your teams to a different level of thought leadership, which in turn will help you and your people develop a different thinking ethos for the future.
The nexxworks inspiration series helps us to imagine the future together with all the teams worldwide, and make the bridge to our day-to-day challenges as well.
The nexxworks inspiration sessions were that mindblowing, that I invited my global team to taste, smell and learn via a similar experience.
Meeting today’s companies and speakers brought us refreshing energy and perspectives to our challenges today.
This experience showed how short-term planning and long term planning are both needed. The China visits were truly inspiring in how they execute on that.
It’s so important to step outside the day-to-day business. We are the only ones who can moderate this back to our teams and translate what we’ve learned to accomplish our daily goals.
To new travelers, I hope you feel some of the same excitement, anxiety, and concentration. May you learn the way we did.
We’ve seen great concepts and initiatives from other companies, that made us think outside the box.
We want to make sure that the wonderful company that our family started, remains relevant in a fast-pace changing world.
I view the nexxworks membership as a combination of inspiration, practical insights, and networking with peers.
