Focus on: Simoon Fransen
Oss, Brabent, Netherlands
Simoon's challenge in life is exploring new pathways to cultural transformation. She is a facilitator of change in the field of sustainable innovation, mainly in the public sector.
During the 12 years that she worked for the local government as a project-leader for innovation, she guided the city of Oss and their partner-organizations through change processes (from participatory cost-cutting to deep cultural transformation). In that time she also built the first Future Center for this local government, trained hundreds of people in Creative thinking, facilitating change, and Theory U and she published three books, her latest being Creativity for Government.
Currently she is self employed, involved in many things that she is passionate about. She is a board member for Way of Nature Netherlands, on the coordination team for Global Leadership (launching July), on the leadership team for Future Centre Alliance, she makes movies, she is business partner for Futour (integration Theory U in MBA programs in Italy and Finland), and co-creating the first International Yogaday NL.
In personal life, her passions are family, reading, playing music on the accordion, daily yoga/qigong, and the animal farm: horses, cats, dogs, rats, guinea pigs, etc.
