‘Knowledge is key to having an advantage in the market.’

Michèle Polspoel


‘Knowledge is key to having an advantage in the market.’
After obtaining my master’s degree in Social Sciences and post-doc training in Business Administration, I joined De Baak, the knowledge centre of the Dutch Confederation of Netherlands Industry and Employers (known as VNO-NCW).
The common theme of my career is the development of leadership of those in transitioning organisations. In the past 15 years I took the roles of advisory consultant and partners with several (international) firms specialising in executive search firms and governance professionalisation, among others at FunktieMediair, Horton International and Ebbinge & Partners. My professional focus was and continues to be on public-private organisations in various domains, such as housing associations, government owned companies, branch organisations, but also on life sciences, health, innovation funds and knowledge institutions.
My personal ‘ambition for excellence’ is to connect the public and private domain and thus finding the optimum in the proverbial ‘best of both worlds’. In the end I strive to contribute to the challenges presented by digitization, innovation and flexibilization of the civic society.
