About Me

Hi!

I’m Jorien

A Dutch name pronounced as ‘Yorin’.

I had a dream to life and work in Australia in 2004.
12 years later, we quit our jobs, sold the house and with enough savings to survive a year without a job, we took the leap. 

A journey started with depressions, disconnect from self & others, finding ways to rebuild life and networks from scratch, learn how to feel ‘home’ and valued in a different country. 

In the meantime also trying to enjoy the quality lifestyle in Australia and practicing how to pronounce ‘individual’, I learned the biggest lesson in life: the ability you can create anything in life. With the right belief, skills and support of people. Every new level, needs a new level of you.

I’ve trained as an elite athlete in the past – competed at the Dutch Judo Championship in 1997. Hence, this journey gave me the personal foundation to never give up and keep finding ways in my career and life to make it happen.

Career background 
I bring 20 years of experience in Leadership, Healthcare Business Development and Entrepreneur skills together in into tailored programs for Doctors and Healthcare Professionals.

With many qualifications in the Corporate field, from BBA, Marketing and Prince2 Projectmanagement. Additionally, I posses cross industry experience as a former (interim-) manager, I have worked at big corporates like: The Dutch Railways (Public Transport with 30.000 employees) as a Regional Manager taking care of 27 railway stations and 1mln in budget, and several roles within the Health Care.

My last 5 years in the Netherlands I spent my career as Deputy Director Facility Management taking care of 60 employees and as a Marketer of Innovation developed & implemented new concepts for the Aged Care Industry. Ultimately resulting in the following new services as:

  • A service to offer 24/7 complex nursing care at home,
  • A partnership for home care services,
  • Real estate concepts that allowed the elderly to live independently.

Beside spending a lot of hours working, you will find me powerlifting in the gym, playing squash with friends and spent time with my family.

Are you ready to take the next step with Direct In-Focus Consultancy?
