I believe in a heart-ship connection
In my work a strong connection with someone has almost a magical effect. It gives you a creative boost which puts the level of output much higher. Your minds get connected which makes less words needed to create what’s in your head. I have this heart-ship connection with a few people. This is different than a friendship or good colleague teamwork.
One of these people is working with me for over 10 years. As a brandmanager Onno is not only excellent in his performance, but I love having him around because he completes me and I get the best out of him. In all those years we created shows and photoshoots from the highest level. Onno helps me to think about the smallest details, together we underline the brand values in the right ways. I enjoy brainstorming with Onno because I know he can challenge me to go for the best. In work we are truly equivalent which unlocks the potential of both of us. Throughout the years we grew closer and it gave my role as a leader a whole new dimension.
We made a lot of memories together. Business trips, extreme deadlines, he running a bit harder when I’m not at my best, me running a bit harder when he’s not at his best. I wish everyone a few of these valuable special connections with persons who enlarge your creativity.
Onno, I value our special connection, I appreciate you as a person. Thank you for your loyalty.

My week; an inside look
I never have a week with a same sort of agenda as the week before, or the week ahead. That’s because I sometimes live the life of four different people.
Funny, Feminist and Fearless Lena Dunham
Writer, director, and feminist Lena Dunham was in town for her book tour. I have been a big Lena fan for quite some time, even before she was the well-known lady she is today.
