8 years ago, I left ABN Amro and started my personal transition ‘from banker to entrepreneur’. Since then, many senior executives and other people from within the Financial Services industry including former colleagues at ABN Amro have asked me to help them with honest career and business advice. And to make the right personal choices for themselves based on their own ideas, my own personal experiences and of other people of senior executive and senior management and middle management level that also went through this personal transformation successfully or unsuccessfully. To learn from each other what worked and what didn’t.
My personal experiences: from senior banker to successful entrepreneur.
I had actually worked on my ‘plan b’ since 2001 and I knew from my own experiences and other colleagues and friends that the chances of finding the same kind of position and salary I had at ABN Amro at my age (50+) were rather slim. I went through the traditional outplacement-process at ABN Amro and to be honest, that was a waste of time and money. But fortunately, I had done my homework.
How do I know what works or not? If you look at my LinkedIn-profile here, you can see what my personal profit model and business model is looking like since 2011. I am the author of a number of bestselling books and I am a happy person now, both on a personal and on a business level. A number of people and experts helped me to do that. And I am very grateful for that.
So I would love to share real life knowledge and experiences with the help of ‘best-in-class’ partners like in case for executive search and placement Holtrop Ravesloot with you in an innovative blended learning program. To help you to make the right choices. To be different from all those other people. If you are ready for it that is.
What can we do for you to help you make the right choices…for you?
Some op the options we will be helping you with after the intake and after have have signed up for the program:
- make a ‘plan b’ during your internal outplacement process and help you make the best decisions…..for you.
- find a similar job in Financial Services.
- find a similar job in another industry.
- join a (Fintech) startup or scale-up team.
- start your own startup as a founder or co-founder.
- make the personal transition from employee to independent business owner (self-employed).
To save your precious time and money, we will use self-study material in Dutch and English as much as possible including checklists, e- books, exercises and other online and offline course materials including materials from my two bestsellers in Dutch for starters, the ‘Starters Blueprint©’ if you are opting for option 6 and the ‘Fintech Startup Blueprint©’ if you opt for options 4 or 5 (you get both books when you register for the course by the way).
How does the program work?
After an initial intake, together with Boudewijn Vellinga of Holtrop Ravesloot, work together with you on your personal blueprint and your personal action plan. At your own pace, in your own time. If you decide to enroll for the first paid 1-day module with a number of tests and the personal recommendations of different experts, we will help you to define your personal blueprint and action plan including how to pick the right learning and training activities while negotiating with your employer. What you do next in the next modules, completely depends on the intake, the structured recommendations we give you, your profile, what you want yourself and on what you want to spend your valuable time, energy and money per module.
So that YOU can make the right choices and do not waste your valuable time, energy and money on things that will not work for you personally like with many traditional outplacement activities including instructor-led classroom activities. We want you to find paid work as quick as possible whatever you want and what is possible.
As this is a tailor-made, individual and personalised blended learning and action program on demand for you, the number of people we can work with at the same time is very limited.
