Sonja Vlaar

For (virtual) conversations that deepen the connection with each other, with nature and with ourselves.

After studying Human Nutrition in Wageningen I went to Mozambique. There I worked 5 for years in healthcare and education, as a nutritionist. I became active starting all kinds of projects. The “we” of African culture (Ubuntu: “I am because we exist”) has had a lot of influence on my education as a person, professional and the interaction with other cultures.

After that, I worked 15 years in international cooperation and I traveled to Brazil, India, Bhutan, Angola, Zimbabwe, to name a few. Traveling broadened my view, outwards and inwards. They are journeys that never stop and continue. Talent development, learning, and change

My clients characterize me as clear in communication, pleasantly direct, result-oriented, flexible and creative.
