ABOUT

Wanne Wiersinga Wanne offers valuable insights and practical strategies to improve the effectiveness of international executives. Building global competence consists in her point of view, of understanding what is driving people from different cultures, interpreting accurately intercultural situations and developing the ability to act appropriately and effectively in a wide range of cross-cultural situations. She is highly practical and analytical in building more cohesive and successful teams on a global scale.

She combines the analytical framework of Professor Geert Hofstede with practical advice for working across cultures, whether you need to be persuasive to the board, motivate employees or close a deal cross-culturally. She has worked with over a thousand executives from five continents, decoding how culture impacts their success and supporting them to actively manage their international activities in the most effective way.

The combination of being an expert on national culture, organisational culture and culture & personality gives Wanne a competitive edge. Clients say they like to work with her because she increases the effectiveness of the behavioural repertoire of the professionals she works with. Her work experience is divided in different branches: Finance (ING, PwC, DNB); Industry (Hitachi, Unilever, Vorwerk), Trade (Cargill, Kenz-Figee, NEH), Services (Randstad, Cap Gemini, KLM) and Government (EVD, Foreign Affairs).

Wanne worked and lived in multiple countries (Indonesia, The Netherlands, Mexico, Japan and Germany) and has been involved in many global projects and knows the challenges and best practices by heart.
