Professional Summary Description: ProfilernI am a highly experienced expert in higher education, who likes to work in the areas of strategy- and organisational development and quality assurance. I am good in effectively handling complex situations, successfully connecting people and achieving concrete results. I have been successful in helping to set up and develop QA agencies and in developing internal quality assurance within universities. rnrnExperiencernI spent my working life in Higher Education. Among other things I worked as a director of the Faculty of Law at Maastricht University, Dean of Students at Amsterdam University and vice president Institutional Development at Leiden University. As a consultant I have been involved in many national and international projects in the areas of strategy development, organizational development and quality assurance. rnI have worked as a program manager setting up the Dutch and Flemish system of program accreditation, and helped to develop the NVAO as a QA-organisation with a cross country character. Recently I worked in a World Bank project in Armenia on the development of a 5-year plan for the Armenian Quality Assurance organization.rnAt present I am (part-time) business manager of the Accra branch of the China Europe International Business School (CEIBS). The main location of the school is located in Sjanghai, China. The Accra branch started three years ago. As a business manager I am responsible for developing CEIBS in Accra into a leading business school in Africa.rnAmbitionrnIt is my ambition aside from my job at CEIBS to stay active as a consultant in international projects in the field of Quality Assurance in Asia, Africa or Europe. This is the reason why I decided to take the professional certificate program on Quality Assurance in Higher education (the INQAAHE-endorsed program) at Melbourne University this year. I especially have added value when working on setting up and developing QA organizations, be it at the start of their activities, or at a time when the organization encounters new challenges and enters a new phase of development.
