Inge is an expert in gender smart working and the author of ‘Be Gender Smart – The Key to Career Success for Women’ and has a passionate, engaging style.
She is an inspiring speaker, with a message that resonates with both (leading) women and senior managers: ‘stop changing women, start changing organisations,’
Inge has a unique take on gender diversity. She has reviewed bio-psychological and brain research to find those gender differences that are relevant in the workplace. She applies those to solve the enigma of the lack of women in senior positions and in the pipeline, and gives real examples on how to move forward and not just keep women in but also leverage what they bring.
She is a highly qualified speaker, facilitator and tutor, and experienced panel moderator, researcher and consultant.
Her talks are highly interactive, with personal stories, statistics, discussion, fresh ideas and insights and some truly practical actions.
10 min – 1-hour talk, which can be as interactive as you like, or can be extended to a 2-3 hour workshop. Inge is highly skilled in classroom work as well as working with large groups (40-300 people). She is an experienced panel moderator.
With W2O Consulting & Training Inge designs and runs events, workshops and training programmes helping organisations retain and develop female talent. She has a special interest in using gender intelligence to enable both genders to contribute effectively.
Previously she has worked for nearly two decades as a Business Consultant at Siemens in Cultural and Organisational Change and in Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability at Ashridge Business School, Shell and Chatham House. So she brings the first-hand experience of working in male-dominated organisations and understands the need for business outcomes.
Inge is originally Dutch and has lived and/or worked in The Netherlands, Belgium, France, Canada, India and Oman. For the past 12 years, she has lived and worked in the UK. As a mother she has experience with full-time working, part-time working, working from home and running her own business.
