Not all Mother’s Day celebrations are “Helemaal Zen”…

“Happy Mother’s Day!” – we hear and see everywhere today. Some of us are lucky to celebrate with our child(ren), some with their own mother. Some with the whole family, parents and children, grandparents and grandchildren, siblings and other relatives and friends celebrating all mothers, grandmothers, step-mothers together. I am super grateful for my children…

The most important conference of the year – and things that are even more important…

KMWorld (Knowledge Management World) and ESDDC (Enterprise Search and Discovery) are two conferences co-hosted the same week, same location in Washington DC every year. Without any doubt, this is the most important professional event of every year: all the thought leaders are there, and it is always a great opportunity to see fellow colleagues, partners,…

Expect the Unexpected

Expect the Unexpected

Being a mother of three children, running a business, having a husband who travels every other week, and trying to fit my own travel schedule into this lovely mess while having time for myself, too… is a HUGE challenge. If something, I’ve learned something, especially since I became a mother almost seventeen years ago: there’s never…

It was March 4, 2020, when my almost empty flight from Copenhagen, Denmark landed in Budapest, Hungary. The pandemic already had been around us, and already had impacted my travel plans for the rest of March and April — but I had no idea the magnitude of its impact on our lives in the following…

Work-life balance?!

Work-life balance?!

Wednesday morning. Wake up at 3:30am to catch my flight at 6am. Work in Antwerp and Brussels Wed and Thu. Thursday evening, two conferences and several meetings later: let’s go home! Massive flight delay on the way back, due to thunderstorms above Europe. Landing at BUD at 1am then driving home. Almost 3am when I…

Expect the unexpected

Expect the unexpected

As a mother of three, unexpected things are constantly part of our lives. Someone gets sick. Something is needed for the school — the very next day. Something gets lost. You name it. The only way I’ve found to work for us is to expect these unexpected things. Of course, I don’t mean to worry…

Tomorrow’s Thought Leaders Today

Tomorrow’s Thought Leaders Today

‘Thought Leader’ and ‘Influencer’ are very much buzz words across the digital space (that’s another one!). Very few people who become leaders in this field actually set out to self-style themselves to be a thought leader or influencer in my opinion. I think they just did their thing, shared it, and people began to be…
