Together with his two friends, Michiel and Bas they started the idea of flavored peanut butter in Michiel’s house.

Currently, they have four shops in the Netherlands and are considering expanding to Scandinavia.

“One of our bestsellers is Peanut butter with chili & lemongrass flavor”

His tips to become more culturally competent is:

  • Don’t go on your assumptions. Instead, talk to people and find out for yourself.

I'm passionate about Cultural Difference. I have been helping organizations save time and money when they work Internationally for the last 19 years. I have had the fortunate opportunity to hold lectures, workshops, and consulting projects on this subject World Wide. It has made me understand my own culture much better, and appreciate the differences around the world.
I have a Master's Degree in Organisational Psychology and have lived in the USA, the Netherlands and, currently, in Belgium.
Thank you!
