Stephen guides SMEs in the development of their (digital) strategy and the implementation of changes to become more efficient and to grow. Stephen has an economic/financial/technical background and worked his way up to General Manager at Omron Electonics. In 2006 he founded his first own company and supported several SMEs as interim and crisis manager. Since 2010 he specializes in change & digital transformation and has executed dozens of large change projects. In 2020 he founded Wise Owl Consulting and in 2021 Peoples.Engineer followed.

Stephen thus has years of experience in automation and transformation. His people-oriented approach makes him special so that change projects always achieve the intended results. He succeeds in doing things where others do not and thus does not run away from a difficult challenge. He believes that excellence can only be achieved by teams that share a vision and are fully committed to what they do, both intellectually and emotionally.

As business manager of Wise Owl Consulting, he mainly takes care of the "change" aspect in digital transformations. The company is part of an ecosystem of companies that are all involved in digital transformations in one way or another.

At Wise Owl Consulting, they work with the client to analyze their specific target market, their processes & structures to draw out a concrete customized strategic plan. The company does not only look for cost savings, but also focuses on taking advantage of market opportunities. They guide the outlined change trajectory and involve the employees at all possible levels to ensure maximum involvement, which greatly increases and perpetuates the results of the trajectory.

His main activities are therefore change management projects that often start with helping to make strategic choices and where he facilitates the change from beginning to end. He is also a mentor for young business leaders and helps SMEs to take steps in digitalization by implementing the OOdoo bedrijfssuite.

 

What is your personal ambition Stephen?

"I wish to see Wise Owl Consulting and Peoples.Engineer grow into platforms where senior consultants feel at home and form the bridge between people and technology through efficient change projects."
