Bringing Agile to companies takes a lot of facilitation and knowledge sharing, that's why I'm an Agile Change Facilitator and trainer via Co-Learning. I love helping companies adapt towards a more flexible way of working, help teams to work towards better results and facilitating change management. Using the right techniques at the right time to get people to a new level of understanding about their situation, the job at hand and how to use their energy to get there.
I help teams and individuals within organisations through facilitation of meetings and brainstorms, knowledge sharing, trying to ask the right questions at the right time and offering multiple options when looking for solutions. I'm experienced in getting groups with different cultural backgrounds together, helping them to find how they can improve as a collective and achieve their common goals.
I'm an Innovation Games® Certified Collaboration Instructor, Innovation Games ® Black Belt Collaboration Architect, Certified LeSS Practitioner, Professional Scrum Product Owner I, Licensed Management 3.0 Practitioner and Facilitator, Lean Change Facilitator, Certified Performance Management Innovator (PMI) and LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® facilitator and I practice, mix and match these techniques whenever the circumstances call for them.
Fluently trilingual, I love facilitation, moderation, training, high profile customer contacts, issue management, change management, scrum, lean & kanban. I'm also knowledgeable in more technological area's such as IT, the paper industry, industrial printing and enveloping productions and direct marketing, but also very passionateI the HR aspects of agile, which is too often left out of the loop until it's almost too late.

I've thoroughly enjoyed working with Annelies: She is a marvelous instructor and a highly skilled designer and facilitator of Innovation Games® and related collaboration frameworks. I am especially impressed with Annelies's ability to respond with grace under pressure: during a large client engagement Annelies changed the design of a session in real time to better align the purpose of the session to the goals of the client and the actual participants. The result was the truest heart of Agility: responding to change over following a plan while collaborating with the customer. It was brilliant.
