A Creator of dreams – I like to build my own and help people and teams make theirs happen. I’ve had a few lives – marketer for P&G, Benckiser, and Coca-Cola, running a few small businesses, and consultant for 20 years, learning to position global and local brands and helping teams work with purpose. I lived in France, Belgium, Thailand, and the UK worked in almost 30 countries across four continents and raised a (very) multicultural family. 

I am introvert-extrovert – I love to reflect on my own, but I am at my best when working with diverse teams, learning, discovering, and combining forces to build amazing solutions. I am as much at home in London, rural Thailand, or on a farm in the South of France: living outside the city keeps me rooted in the life of real people, well beyond the boardroom.

Protective Caregiver, passionate to make the impossible possible, living the motto: organization is everything, impossible is nothing. Having undergone a formal education to become an office organization and communication professional I started my career at a large German bank, so I could hone my skills in a highly diligent environment. 

Joining Innate Motion was a purposeful life decision for me. Working for a company that uses business as a force for good, beyond profit, feels gratifying. I choose to coordinate complex projects with many moving pieces that involve many different stakeholders. Every day I put my organizational and problem-solving skills at the service of those who want to help create a better future for us and our children.

Deeply curious world citizen, a tribe gatherer, a pragmatic planner, an avid gardener, and a truly Belgian consensus builder. Having grown as an only child in a 4-generations only-child family, I became very interested at an early age by the complexity of group dynamics and fascinated by the magic of a strong collective. As a relentless traveler who has lived on 3 continents, I have experienced that there are more things that bring us all humans together than what drives us apart.

Being a business humanizer at Innate Motion gives me great opportunities to use my skills and energy to draw people together in order to achieve greater things. I am a strong believer in using businesses as forces for good, but I also know that the road to hell is paved with good intentions: so it is not enough for a business to want to do good, where the biggest help is needed is on making it actually happen.  I strongly believe that developing win-win relationships between businesses and society will make this world a better place for her 3 children to grow up in.

A Cyborg, dancer-wanna-be, traveler, maybe sociologist, passionate about psychotherapy & time management, I enjoy being on the road, traveling through, or living in different places. One is to observe cultural differences, and the other is to realize that the so-called cultural differences are a misleading term – a more complex system beyond country, race, or ethnicity. And fast conclusions can shut you out from more profound connections.

Ever since I graduated with my masters in MSc Culture and Society, I’ve been working as a Business Humanizer, keen to apply human insights and methodologies I acquired to the real world, to the commercial world. Being an Enthusiast, I want to create a more tolerant and prosperous world where we embrace, rather than fear, difference, and diversity.

A restless explorer, a passionate believer in the good power of humankind, a creativity seeker in all forms, and a sea lover. I look for diversity and dynamism to keep me going, so I have always actively chosen to expose myself to new and different environments. I have nurtured the richness of my experiences by working with governmental institutions, NGOs, and private companies. Learning how to speak 7 languages has been priceless to navigate across cultural, people, and country borders. 

At Innate Motion, I help brands and organizations bring out their best by being closer to the people and their needs. With over 10 years of experience in facilitation, I smoothly lead diverse stakeholders and teams through empathy-driven journeys that result in a shared vision of purpose and contribution. Every day I try to grow the movement of those who contribute to fighting the global struggle for a regenerative world.

Free-spirited, spontaneous, adventure seeker! Always up for a challenge and trying new things! I love astrology, a good glass of Rose` and spending quality time with friends and family! I am a mom of three very active boys who keep me on my toes and I enjoy doing anything that allows me to express my creativity! An empath by nature, I am fascinated by people and the psychology behind each person.

I strongly believe in the law of attraction – what you think about you bring about and my life’s mantra (In the wise words of Mahatma Gandhi), ”Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”  I started working for Innate Motion in 2019, doing the behind-the-scenes work of administrative-related tasks. I help wherever I am needed and thoroughly enjoy the whole philosophy that Innate Motion encompasses!

Enlightened Crusader, business humaniser, photographer, jazz enthusiast, aspiring football pundit. I was born to an Indonesian family with Chinese roots. Being raised in a culturally mixed family allowed me to fall in love with travelling. Through my travels, I got a chance to adore the differences I spotted – be it the people, landscapes, or cultures. Until today, I seek to relish those wonderful moments with my own eyes, savour it in my heart, and capture them with an eye behind the lens. 

I am a marketer at heart and a strong believer of a brand. I love the idea of how a brand is able to stimulate certain perceptions in the minds of people. I believe in the power of brands to change the way people behave and make Earth a better place to live for everyone. Training my empathy muscles is my way to contribute positively towards a better change, which is done through talking to people and understanding them better every day.

Crusader, beauty lover, fashionista, and the most fabulous mum to her two boys, Leon and Quentin. I love talking to people about the choices they make in life. Why buy this brand and not the other? Why do some have a 3 step skincare regimen, and others are only satisfied with ten steps daily? I understood China, my country of birth, only after talking to people worldwide. 

As a Crusader, I believe humanity is key to creating a better world.
It takes fierce empathy to listen to people without judgment. I believe in the power of projective techniques to stimulate conversations and discover the deeper why behind the answers. Understanding people’s behavior unlocks the triggers to vital behavior that improves the world.

Sage, approachable intellect, courageous entrepreneur, thought-leading psychologist, keynote speaker, lover of Oliver, mum of Jay, and forest jogger with husky Yuki. I love to relate to people for who they truly are. When we are aware of our conscious biases and learn to overcome stereotypes and labels, we can connect more genuinely and without judgment to every human being. This is the prerequisite to bridging divides, uniting humanity, and fighting social injustice.

I co-founded Innate Motion with the ambition to humanize  business. I love to serve companies and brands that want to build a sustainable human future. To have an impact at scale, we need to change how we live, consume, and relate to each other and nature. Every day, I do my best to fuel the regenerative business movement by being radically collaborative and fiercely empathetic.

Caregiver, pedagogue, avid baker, linguist, and new mum.  Growing up in a multicultural family and schooled in the IB system, I was so fascinated by languages and cultures that I set out on my first self-determined move halfway across the world at the age of 13. Since then, I have lived and worked in more than 15 countries, picking up a couple of languages and a degree in linguistics along the way.

For a while, I believed translation and education were going to be my way to have a positive impact on the world until I heard of Innate Motion being a B Corp and figured it was meant to be! Today, my acute sense of empathy and knack for words help me connect with people on a deeper level. I believe in building a future where the regenerative business will be the norm. Contributing to this change makes feel me proud every day.

Global citizen, motivational unifier, pop music-obsessed, and a big fan of empanadas. It was in my homeland, Colombia, where I learned how to work collaboratively and across differences to address challenges during times of conflict. Raised by a family that encouraged me early on to follow my dreams and always strive to make a difference, I embarked on a journey to better understand my purpose. A journey that has taken me from my hometown, Medellin, to Cairo, New Delhi, Cape Town, and now, Berlin.

My life choices have been driven by my curiosity in seeking out different perspectives and ideas to create innovative solutions in coherence with the needs of our planet. Along this journey, I have worked in various industries and cultural contexts. As a Business Humanizer, I get to channel these life experiences and help businesses unlock their potential to make a positive change. By harnessing the power of storytelling and life-centered design, I strive to craft powerful strategies that inspire action for a regenerative future.

Observant psychologist, trilingual reader and amateur painter, gardener and hiker, I’ve always been fascinated by human behavior, motivations and biases. Growing up in India, the melting pot of diverse religions, languages and cultures, my fascination with understanding these differences only grew with time. So after my bachelors, I moved to France and taught English in primary schools before starting a masters. After 3 years here, I have amassed deeper knowledge of cultural nuances and societal structures that affect economies and markets.

Currently pursuing a masters in Economics and Psychology in Paris has equipped me with analytical and research skills for using behavioral findings to inform economic decisions. Working at Innate Motion gives me the opportunity to do just that by helping humanize businesses and improve practices everywhere.

Creator, Daring, proactive, sometimes very stubborn, lover of animals and life. By the time that I was 22, I had already lived in 6 different countries; which for me was always very exciting. I had an easy time sucking in all that was new and adapting to my new surroundings and in a way, I believe this was a crash course to understanding and decoding people and cultures as well as practicing the power of empathy.

I have a father who inspired and exposed me to the world of business and a mother who taught me the tricks of life.  I have worked in a couple of different fields, graduating in law, later working with art, and now putting brainpower to help companies define their purpose and be better contributors to the world. My degrees and trajectories have helped me to join the practical, theoretical, and poetic visions of business.

I was born and raised in France by a Vietnamese father and a German mother. Growing up with multiple cultural influences formed my open-mindedness and nurtured my curiosity to understand people for who they are beyond their labels.

I have always been passionate about the beauty and complexity of the human psyche, so I studied Social Sciences and Psychology. There is no day at Innate Motion where I do not put these skills to work. I am intrigued to help companies and brands to build a deeper and more genuine relationship with the people they want to serve. To do so, I use the power of empathy and deep listening skills to unearth what moves human beings and how we can engage them in the most meaningful way. A brighter human future starts one person at a time. As a Sage, I dream of a world free from misinformation and shallowness, where knowledge is king and drives advancement.

Hence, my personal calling is to liberate as many people as possible from limiting narratives by sharing experiences and fresh perspectives.

I am a big believer in sports and the benefit it gives. I see sport creates friendships between people who would not normally communicate. Having the experience of running more than 10 marathons, I learned so much about endurance training and how it can be applied in everyday life: don’t strive for perfection. Instead, challenge yourself to be better and minimize any obstacles that prevent you from getting there.

I read sports marketing and have worked with various global sports brands. Besides humanizing business with Innate Motion, I also act as a running coach, helping recreational athletes achieve their running goals.

Enthusiast, marketer by heart, social volunteer worker, lover of the Caribbean and Latin cultures, parent of 3 wonderful kids and a cat together with Frank I always wanted to explore the world in the broadest sense of the meaning. So, I studied business administration in the Netherlands and the US. Afterwards I joined Unilever in Australia and spent 19 years in exciting marketing positions at Unilever, Nike and FrieslandCampina. All throughout I enjoyed to deliver growth plans that made a difference to people and society.

Joining Innate Motion enabled me to co-craft brands with a real and shared purpose. For this, I guide teams to reframe their relationships from ‘strategist to consumer’ to ‘the people they serve’. This approach calls for acquiring empathy as a business skill in a world that is often too transactional. It is my way of building a regenerative economy brand by brand, business by business.

With Renoir & Rambo, our dogs, we enjoy the luxury of watching the sunset, walking on the beach, and being close to nature. I help organizations and people who rescue stray animals.

Creative strategist, innovator, communicator, lecturer, conscious capitalist, youngest brother of three, animal-lover, cyclist, and tai-chi newbie. I believe storytelling is the most robust tool to challenge the current status quo. I love to connect single stories to create a seamless journey that impacts the environment and makes an actual difference – for the people, the planet, and my partners.

After thirteen years in advertising, working around the globe for some of the biggest love brands, I founded two companies to improve the world. We must change how we do business from the inside out. Such transformation is challenging, but I love exploring the hidden opportunities to create a meaningful experience with my partners. Not only to lecture but to invite people to deliver their life’s best work as a team. The Friend is my leadership style: pursue connection despite our world’s growing polarization and divisions.

Energetic, talkative, easy-going, ambivert, fair problem-solver, foodie, a digital native who likes to ride on the trend, passionate about beauty, and not afraid to try new things. I firmly believe in “if there’s a will, there’s always a way.” This word keeps me going whenever I meet roadblocks throughout my life. As a young Unifier, I don’t push for uniformity. I welcome everyone’s uniqueness and recognize the strength of diversity and inclusion. If we join forces and work together in cohesion, we all thrive.

My background in communication sparked my interest in understanding the different perspectives that everyone has. Through Innate Motion, I can explore and understand the underlying reasons behind it by utilizing our tools and methodologies. I love seeing how this understanding helps businesses connect with their people and find their true purpose, which will help build a better society and world.

I joined Innate Motion in 2013 to fully focus on what I love most: Solving business- and brand issues, creating positive societal impact, whilst developing winning teams courageous enough to go beyond the obvious. This is why I always look back on a project with a sense of joy and satisfaction when I see how our methodologies and change-journeys spark positive transformation, rarely leaving a client-team untouched. 

Before Innate Motion, I worked for over 18 years in Unilever in Europe, Africa, and Latam in multiple leadership roles and – categories. I am a Dutch national yet I currently live in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and feel privileged to have the world as my backyard, working truly global as we do as Innate Motion.

I’m a welcome change practitioner and a natural-born silo shifter. I am passionate about sports like rugby or tennis and my family. I love to use business as a tool for creativity and community building. Hence I operate best as an entrepreneur, impact investor, and senior advisor, helping others build brands and use business as a force for good.

To better share my expertise in humanizing business, I’ve co-authored books like Creating value people to peopleActivists Dare to Care, and  Beyond the power girl. I co-founded Innate Motion, African Drive, The Regenerative Alliance, and Innate Active. Core to my leadership across all these businesses is the belief that business becomes infinitely more valuable for everyone when we create value together as people for people.

Food and wine enthusiast, aspiring interior designer, proud dog mom, pending sci-fi writer. I am addicted to experiencing new places, and I adore how local foods can tell a delicious story of history and culture. Eventually one of my culinary expeditions led me to shift my life from Orlando, Florida, USA to Seville, Spain. 

As a business humanizer, I love working with companies to better understand the people they serve and to unlock their ability to be a force for good. I personally like to contribute by capturing deep human and cultural insights into engaging narratives that mobilize people around a shared vision. Relevant storytelling is important to propel humanity into the desired action for positive impact. I believe that if we make empathy our superpower we can make the world a beautiful place to live for generations to come.

I am an open-hearted, boundary-breaking, society defying, yogi and champagne lover…one part yin and 2 parts yang. Over the last 21 years in marketing, entrepreneurship, and consulting I have learned that empathy is key to unlocking real meaningful change and growth. I have worked on brands and businesses in most industries from FMCG, retail, and beauty to pharma, the chicken industry, and technology. I have also created my own brands.

My belief is that we should use what we do to become who want to be. And I want to be someone who contributes to making the world a better place. Living in the most unequal country in the world, South Africa, I believe that if businesses could become more inclusive, purposeful, and regenerative the planet and its people would thrive. If you, like me, believe the same, then let’s chat. Together we can make an impact.

Active dream chaser, lifelong nomad, self-certified experience junkie, amateur yogi, and an innovative rebel. I have always found it easy to fit naturally in different settings and connect with people seamlessly. This ability enables me to view and appreciate the world from different windows. It fuels the spirit of curiosity and restlessness in me which exposes me to different disciplines, cultures, and countries. Getting to connect deeply with people all around the world brings me so much joy. 

I am passionate about improving systems that stifle empowerment and the pursuit of better livelihoods for people in society. You can refer to me as an activist of the sustainable or regenerative movement. My work centers on working with businesses to be beacons of change in the industry and with individuals to elevate their thinking and empower them to drive the change the world so desperately needs to secure our collective future.

I am a Creator, poet, writer, theatre aficionado, and nature lover who likes to walk amongst the green trails of Singapore. My love for creativity led me to a career in advertising in Mumbai, India. I enjoy how culture shapes our lives, and I moved into a role focused on culture-based brand planning. During my advertising career, I worked in Mumbai and Singapore on iconic brands from The Coca-Cola Company, Johnson & Johnson, and Unilever. Currently based in Singapore, and now exploring how human empathy can make companies and brands relevant and powerful.

I am troubled about the state of our planet and am deeply interested in projects that are based on regenerative thinking to add back to the planet. I am a firm believer in the B Corp movement, and I participate in leadership discussions on the role of regenerative businesses. My recent projects with leading brands have focussed on transformative humanizing journeys, brand positioning, and communication development. On weekends  I love photographing birds and natural landscapes and writing articles for The Punch magazine India.
