Christine in a few words

Creative, analytical, solution focussed

My latest position was Managing Consultant at IBM GBS (Global Business Services). Over the past 11 years I gained expertise in:
- Business transformation & automation
- Project management & leadership
- Project development & solutioning

In addition, I have also started the journey of being a professional artist mid-2017, with my first solo show in March 2018 and exhibiting regularly since then.
Analytical thinking, ideation and looking for opportunities to innovate is where my two professions connect and what I am passionate about.

I really enjoy:
- Finding non-obvious connections
- Managing complex situations/tasks
- Creating of alternative ways to proceed and spotting relevant patterns
- Creating successful outcomes
