Program management

Achieving strategic benefits and organizational or sectorial growth based on tangible results achieved through various interrelated projects ran by different teams. Different teams whose needs have to be heard and whose processes have to be facilitated. That is a challenge MK5060 thrives on.

Moderator & facilitator

Listen. Ask. Question. Clarify. Connect. Conclude.
Those are MK5060s keywords for structuring conversations and facilitating meetings. MK5060 cuts to the chase, using her philosophically trained mind, love of people and sound sense of humor and relativity.

Conference curation

Preparation. That is the secret of a truly great conference that is memorable for all the right reasons. Great conferences are about custom concept development, strategic management of relations and resources, wise and enthusiastic team management and above all about having the guts to be true to yourself and your goals.

Key program management competencies of MK5060 are:

  • Cross cultural
  • Interdisciplinary
  • Cross institutional
  • Cross sectorial

MK5060 happily marries the proven competencies with a solution oriented, dynamic, forward looking attitude and a sound sense of humor and relativism.

MK5060 draws on 20+ years of program management experience with national and international teams in knowledge driven programs that = have the strategic aim to strengthen a specific sector or position a specific topic.

Milestones include the Westerdijk year (celebrating 100 years of female professors in The Netherlands and promoting (gender) diversity in academia), kick starting the educational impulse for WWII educators (a cooperation between 14 museums), program management for several Europeana projects, coordinating cooperation between science centers, several cross sectorial European projects including PULMAN, PuLLS and program management advice for projects in the European Year of Cultural Heritage.

MK5060s facilitation method is simple with proven effectiveness:

  1. Explore: you and I set the goal of the meeting or conference, explore the questions and situation at hand, identify the persons and/or parties at the table, develop the program, chart the sensitivities and discuss the setting of the meeting or conference;
  2. Develop: based on the exploration, MK5060 develops a program proposal for the day. We discuss, tweak, merge, amend and compose the final program;
  3. Prepare: the roadmap for the day as well as the facilities need careful preparation so that all involved can have a meaningful gathering of minds, hearts, ideas and insights;
  4. Execute: in close liaison with you I facilitate the day and when needed (believe me: this is not an if!), we tweak or change the game plan of the day or days as we go! Serious if needs be, with a sound sense of humor when wanted, always with the overarching goal in mind and acting to the needs of the moment;
  5. Evaluate: when the day or days are done, I am happy to share my observations and to have an evaluative conversation.

MK5060 draws on 15+ years of facilitating experience. Recently I facilitated futuring and vision development meetings of TBA21, Board of the Dutch Network of Female Professors, the Board of the Association of Science Centers, several strategic team days for Science Center NEMO, meetings focused on the future of Rijksmuseum Boerhaave, several meetings for the cross institutional team of WWII educators for SMH 40-45 and several working groups during Zuiderwaterlinie conferences.

You’ll find me happily working alongside you when you are up for the challenge to develop a great program with an enduring storyline that enables a true meeting of minds, hearts and ideas.

MK5060 draws on 20+ years of conference management experience with national and international teams.

Recent milestones include the LIBER 2017 & 2018 conference, the closing conference of the Johanna Westerdijk year, the DISH and DEN conferences, VPRO’s Conference for the Curious and the Brabant Heritage Awards.

MK5060s moderation and facilitation method is simple with proven effectiveness:

  1. Explore: you and I set the goal of the meeting or conference, explore the questions and situation at hand, identify the persons and/or parties at the table, develop the program, chart the sensitivities and discuss the setting of the meeting or conference;
  2. Develop: based on the exploration with all parties involved through personal conversations, MK5060 develops a program proposal for the day or days. We discuss, tweak, merge, amend and compose the final program;
  3. Prepare: the roadmap for the day as well as the facilities need careful preparation so that all involved can have a productive, wonderful day without worrying about the basics.
  4. Execute: in close liaison with you I chair the day and if needed, we tweak or change the game plan of the day as we go driven by the overarching vision that a moderator must ensure the meeting is useful for the participants. It’s all about finding the right mix of participant’s needs, the situation as it develops and employing the necessary methods to get to the next step. Serious if needs be, with a sound sense of humor when wanted always aiming to open up and keep the space needed for true conversations, for engaging with courage.
  5. Evaluate: when the day is done, I am happy to share my observations and to have an evaluative conversation.
