Hi, I’m Niels, author of the blog Supply Chain Trend.
I started this blog when I arrived in 2009 in Australia from the Netherlands. During my career, I improved business performance as consultant, global supply chain manager and integrated business planning manager in a variety of countries, industries and companies for about 20 years.
My passion is to bring positive change and make individuals and business be themselves at their best.
I’m an accredited Mental Toughness coach and author of an adult self help guide; Building Mental Toughness. I also wrote an illustrated children’s book; My Strong Mind. I founded MentalToughness.online to provide resources and coaching to improve your mental strength. I help organizations understand and improve strategy execution, supply chain management and Sales & Operations Planning (S&OP) with global supply chain consultancy Crimson & Co.
I believe that companies ought to include mindset and behavioural improvement in their operating model. Not just to improve shareholder return, but also to positively influence employee engagement, well-being and life satisfaction. Supply Chain and S&OP in specific has an important role to play in this operating model.
It is my mission to share, educate and implement this vision in the world as author, coach and consultant. Feel free to let me know what you think about my blogs and articles.
