Whenever I do a presentation, I like to start with a picture of my family. I guess more then ever I feel that all I do comes from that basis. When I wake up in the morning and go to work, I don't change all in a sudden into a different person, just because of my role or function. Cradle to Cradle has enabled me to connect my inner drive as a human being with my daily work. I believe very much in our motto: business as an engine for change®. By working from the heart I become passionate with what I do. The combination of this passion, humility and know-how allows me to partner with some of the greatest people in the world to set examples for a better future for our children.
