Hi, I am Simon.

I am dedicating my energy to co-creation and a world of thriving. 

After my studies in Strategy and International Management, I worked as a consultant at McKinsey & Company and supported organisations on strategy projects. Travelling and discovering yoga for a few months, I found a strong interest in natural circular systems and our role as co-creators. This left me inspired to contribute to new ways of doing business ‘by design’ and applying a systems lens. Between 2015-2022, I had the opportunity to join the Ellen MacArthur Foundation, where we co-created two programmes in the space of circular economy innovation and design. 

Currently, I have two complementary part-time roles: I am a project manager at ecos where I contribute to larger systemic circular economy projects. Next to that, I am an independent consultant focusing on the following topics:
  • Supporting organisations on circular design, collaborative strategy and innovation. More on this in the portfolio. I believe in agile collaborations and work closely with Reform, a strategic design studio, and partners in our network.
  • Co-creating design sprints, workshops and creative experiences
  • Contributing to building the community, primarily through the open Circular Design Circle at the Impact Hub
  • Contributing to light/warm/whole-hearted spaces and practices, such as a Mindfulness Day at the Impact Hub, and yoga (nidra) sessions

If this resonates, it would be wonderful to get to know you over a cup of Oolong tea or a shared nature walk.
