Simoon’s work focuses on capacity building (by training & coaching), application through consultation and facilitating labs and change projects, and community development. She has been leading change processes for government, education and business since 2005. She is a member of the u.lab team, taking care of the (hub host) community and harvesting stories and outcomes. Simoon was educated as a welfare manager and studied human resources development. Her work is guided by the question of how human potential unfolds in an organizational context and in society and how she can contribute to that. Deeply inspired by and strongly connected with nature, she became a student and colleague of John P. Milton (Founder Way of Nature) in 2014. Moreover, Simoon studies and applies biomimicry, an approach to innovation that seeks sustainable solutions to human challenges by emulating nature’s time-tested patterns and strategies. With that nature-based approach, she works with individuals, teams, communities and organizations, exploring pathways to cultural transformation with Theory U as her underlying framework.

The intention of the event was to activate the system we are all part of, find common ground and common intention in our work. Academia, Institutions, Government and Civil society looked deeply into ‘what their work is’ and re-assessed the fact that we play on the same side.
