After a ‘ life’ in consulting where Barbara was a partner of a boutique consultancy firm in the Netherlands focussing on strategy design, transformation, and cultural change, life took a new turn.

As an entrepreneur, she has built the successful company Mom in Balance Switzerland which has been been sold in 2018. In 2017 she founded BOOST. A company dedicated to bringing more energy into corporate life with tailor-made corporate wellbeing programs.
In November 2018 Barbara started at Deloitte leading the Leadership and Culture topics for Deloitte Switzerland.

At the moment Barbara is leading the Deloitte Coaching Community (DCC) which she has designed and set up in 2021.
She also has her own coaching & consulting practice where she supports leaders to grow and unleash their full potential. Especially leaders in a moment of transition or looking to create more impact in their daily life.
