As former CHRO and in my current work as leadership coach and non-executive member of several boards, I have gained valuable insights into the dynamics of organizations and of the people on their teams and boards. I have seen how an individual can make a big difference in finding and strengthening the right path for the organisation (and hence for its teams), society, and other stakeholders.
“Each leader is there to make a difference.”
Dorine has worked in various HR leadership roles in the financial services, telecom, and energy sectors, and also at the Amsterdam UMC hospital and Bird & Bird international lawyers. She has been a non-executive board member for HEMA (2021), the ReinierHaga Group of hospitals (2020), and is currently a non-executive board member at British Telecom Netherlands, and Mosadex Group. Dorine is a member of the external audit committee for the Dutch Ministry of Finance and a chairperson for ViVa Zorggroep! and Revalidatie Nederland. She was recently appointed chairwoman of the SER’s Alliantie Medezeggenschap en Governance.
A true believer in the power of people, Dorine is recognized as a leader and coach with an open heart and an open mind. Wherever change is needed, she can connect, energize, and offer a fresh perspective. She creates safe spaces where professionals thrive, dilemmas are resolved, and new insights are discovered. Dorine is able to remove barriers and open up the “right” conversation, always upholding the human dimension in a company’s new direction or leadership transition. A purpose-driven leader, she is curious, committed, and perseverant.
In addition, Dorine is a leadership coach and facilitates leadership trails in the wilderness with Foundation for Natural Leadership. She is also a moderator for the European Leadership Platform and a lecturer at several institutes.
