I’m eager to assist organizations, both profit and non-profit, by providing strategic thinking. This can encompass a focus on strategy alone or extend to the implementation of the chosen strategy. Often, fresh perspectives reveal different insights, and I’m not afraid to ask the “tough” questions. Over the years, both in my professional and personal life, I’ve noticed that people often seek my input in situations that require a solution.
Furthermore, I can guide an organization in reevaluating its strategy (or a portion thereof) using a tool I have developed, the Business Strategy Review. In this process, ample attention is also given to creating a viable implementation plan. I’m also available to oversee the implementation process if needed.
Additionally, I’m inclined to function as an informal advisor, offering my insights to the CEO/Managing Director, or a Management Team where I can provide an outsider’s perspective and challenge the status quo.
Of course, this is all on a more flexible basis.
“Lucas has been a board member in my Stichting Administratie Kantoor for over 10 years, a role that anticipates unforeseen and undesirable situations. To fulfill this unpaid position, we regularly discuss the current status and how to act if he needs to truly step into this role. In recent years, Lucas has expanded these discussions beyond just me (and my wife) to build relationships with my three sons and my daughter (aged 20, 21, 23, and 25). This has made him an increasingly trusted figure within our family. He approaches this with dedication, a good sense of interpersonal dynamics, and discretion in handling confidential matters. I wholeheartedly recommend Lucas as someone who can quickly grasp a situation, help distill a strategy, effectively supports its implementation, and excel in dealing with various stakeholders. I know Lucas as honest, intelligent, committed, and possessing a great sense of humor.”
