Business Mentor profile

Unique Peter

  • How do I fill my spare time?

I am a football fan and supporter of Antwerp. I regularly go to festivals and do daily walks with my dog Yuca.

  • What motivates me?

I love connecting with people. I like to discuss and look for solutions together. People give me energy.

  • Who is my hero?

Nelson Mandela, despite everything, continuously stimulated the debate between people of all colors.

  • My motto?

"What is the problem you want to be solved?"

  • What advice would you give young Peter?

I would ask him to be patient and ask lots of questions to all the people who interest him. I would explain that the group is always stronger than the individual.

  • I mentor because:

I have a very nice career and have learned a lot. Because I assume that if we have the same information, we can come to a better debate, I want to share as many of my insights as possible.

  • What makes me an awesome mentor?

I'm sociable and usually feel good to other people. I can relate to the position and the feelings of another. My way of communicating is positive. I'm easy-going and enthusiastic and motivate others by considering their views.

  • Did I have a mentor?

I have had a mentor several times in my career.

  • And one more thing ...

Try to identify the real problem as much as possible.
