Annelies has an amazing thirst for knowledge and understanding about how to achieve big impact in the world! Her commitment and drive were undeniable during the Social Innovation Residency where I first met her. She has a mature willingness to question, to be curious and to explore - and she can manage the inevitable tensions that emerge when working on very complex issues. I recently had a chance to co-present a workshop with Annelies and I SO appreciated her capacities for collaboration and creativity. She has a hard won knowledge of how system change happens - born from both formal learning but also from concrete personal and professional experiences. She knows how to make change happen!
