Enabling change

Signature approach

Contributing to a better social environment and world at large by connecting to people and helping connect to one another, specifically in a business context. It is my personal mission to do so in my professional work as an independent change consultant and facilitator.

My signature approach can be recognized by my ability to exploring ideas, engage in true conversations and help create new positive (business)realities. I connect organisational goals, teams and individuals from a systemic perspective.

Education & experience

A master in Public Administration is the base for various further professional development choices. I built my experience and expertise serving non-profit organisations and businesses in maximising their potential. In 1999 I started my working career in consultancy (Arthur Andersen Business Consulting). Since 2007 I work as independent business consultant.



I primarily work in the Netherlands, but enjoy working abroad too. Over the past years I have had the pleasure working for various international organisations, both based in the Netherlands and abroad.

Personal background

I live in the Netherlands in small community with my husband and 2 daughters. My girls are my daily reminder that teaching and learning go hand in hand as I learn from them discovering the world. I was born in the Netherlands and raised traveling the world by (sailing)boat until I was 13 years. My youth has given me a beautiful perspective on the vast variety of people and nature and has thought me to observe without preconceived judgement.

“Agnita came into a complex situation at The Rules. We’re a non-traditional organization – a global network of activists, writers, researchers, coders and others focused on addressing the root causes of inequality, poverty and climate change. On top of that, we had just gone through deep an internal re-calibration. Agnita’s presence was immediately felt and appreciated. She internalized our work, empathized as an activist and team member, while remaining objective enough to give us powerful external counsel. Her insights range from unique and non-linear, to common-sense and urgent. She’s a master at group process, organizational strategy & design, facilitation, and culture building. We’re grateful she is a part of our community.”

Alnoor Ladha, Executive Director, The Rules


“Unilever Engineering was established in 2013 in Europe and it’s been a journey since then. Agnita has been a catalyst to this journey. I met her in a workshop she anchored for our Europe teams in April 2016 and by far it was one of the best I attended. Clarity of thought, deep dive into the group and what they do, purpose driven to achieve what we set out for ourselves and amazing personal connect. Few facilitators bring their whole self and I truly saw Agnita doing that with passion.”

Sonal Jain, HR Business Partner Unilever Engineering
