As a Dutch national with an international education, she has a deep understanding for the effect ‘culture’ has on the way people make sense of the world. This gives her an uncanny knack for identifying the necessary changes, leading to better outcomes and higher performance. In her work, she gets people to come together and participate in articulating their business needs and negotiate cultural differences across silos. The collaboration produces dramatic business improvements.

With over 17 years in the Finance Services Sector, Corjanne worked as a member of the management team within the Investment Banking Division at Morgan Stanley reporting to the European COO. Subsequently, in a similar position with UBS, Corjanne managed staffing and resource planning, team building and development, cross-divisional collaboration, as well as providing coaching and mentoring to professionals within the banking business.

Corjanne also works with Europe’s top business schools including Judge Business School (University of Cambridge), INSEAD, CASS and ESADE, to design their professional development programmes; and to coach individuals and teams.
