THE CREATIVE ACHIEVER METHOD
helpS you IDEATE EXTRAORDINARY IDEAS
AND sprint towards unforgettable results.
There are so many special ambitious ideas that disappear in the back of a drawer. Ideas that might quickly make a big impact on your organization. On your life. On someone else's life. But only if you decide to act on them.
I developed The Creative Achiever Method because there was no methodology that combines creative ideation and concept development, with the fast-paced delivery of results. There are countless tools that really make a difference in one of the two areas. In idea development and prototyping, The Design Sprint and Design Thinking are effective. Nevertheless, I miss the 'achieving' element in these two modalities.
Because prototyping is exactly that. Not an end product.
Repeating Design Sprints until the product or service is completed, is in my opinion not the most effective way to success. After all, a design sprint has been developed to achieve a prototype, to quickly assess whether it is worth your investment to actually putting the product or service into the world. Repeating the same method until you have an end product will ensure that you keep moving, but crucial steps in the delivery process will be skipped.
I merge these two worlds together, and help organizations and professionals excel in ideation AND achievement, in THE CREATIVE ACHIEVER METHOD.
Let’s celebrate your awesome results together.

How Effective is The Creative Achiever Method?
Most of my life, I act according to the basic principles of The Creative Achiever Method.
ALMOST THIRTY YEARS AGO, because it was necessary, when I had to find solutions to pressing challenges from resilience and creativity. I became an orphan of fourteen. My remaining family didn’t take me in, nor did they take care of me. It was a time of mourning and of fear. I had to figure out a way to build a better life for myself, without a safety net. This was a HUGE challenge. And the basic principles of this method (that I didn’t know of back then, of course), formed the basis of what I now know is a powerful way to resilient creative achievement.
YEARS LATER, the method gave me a lot in terms of career milestones. Useful ideas, online campaigns, an NGO to help orphans in Western countries, an award winning blog, a TEDx talk, three books, 25 online courses, events, awards. Projects that are worth celebrating…instead of mourning. Wholehearted work.
TODAY, because it gives me energy and it is just fantastic to share this skill with organizations and professionals who want to make the difference. My trainees benefit greatly from this method, and from the results that they have delivered quickly.
It takes self-reflection to admit that your idea might be improved. And I’d love to help you get that done.
Why wouldn’t you quickly ideate the concept for such purposeful plans, test them with a small selection of yout target group, launch it, and iterate it as you go?
Is there anything holding you back? You can deliver a series of projects that nobody else has done. What if you’f have a series of projects that you are just super proud of?
Published management books. Revised communication departments. Startup concepts. Online business programs. Conferences. TEDx talks. Charities. Inspiring projects. Innovative concepts. Exhibitions. Social transitions. Wholehearted created documentaries, carrying stories that touch lives. For instance.
Perhaps you have a product that isn’t selling particularly well, and you’re wondering why that is. You’re searching for a way to improve its quality. That’s an inspiring project in itself, and a purposeful one at that. More often than not, there is a personal hangup preventing you from reaching your goal. Sometimes it can be fear of failure, or fear of success. Or do you have too many other projects on your plate, and it is difficult to set priorities. Or you suffer from perfectionism, or imposter syndrome. There are countless possible causes that can keep you from your achieving your desired result.
Or perhaps there’s something practical blocking your road. You may not be such a good planner. Or you are afraid that your idea is not unique enough. You have a genius creative idea, but you can’t come up with a feasible plan. Or you are a superhero in making plans, but your core idea is a bit, well, of medium quality.
You can make an impact with distinctive ideas and results. As a professional and as an organization. With a method that teaches you to develop a creative, innovative concept in a short time that is truly unique.
A method that suits you and your organization. That provides your with a plan that aligns with your creative concept. Innovation processes are always tailor-made. But tto get there, you CAN make use of a method. I'd like to help you discover and experience how this works. And I would like to help you in realizing your plan.
And celebrate the wonderful result with you.
An extraordinary idea without an effective plan is called: ART.
A project plan without an extraordinary idea is called: AVERAGE.
An extraordinary idea + an effective method is called: UNFORGETTABLE.
MODULES IN THE CREATIVE ACHIEVER METHOD:
Because every creative achiever has a different challenge and topic, I provide a bonus that is created for you (bespoke or handpicked from my existing courses and workshops portfolio), and always applicable to your unique situation.
For instance, you might receive a course module from one of my other programs, because the topic connects seamlessly with your challenge.
Other examples of bonuses are workshop sheets, podcast episodes, a personal consult via video conferencing, or an online workshop. On some occasions (usually in a group setting), I create a bespoke masterclass on a specific topic in case this is of vital essence to achieve your goal als a group.
Nothing is stronger than an idea that’s ready for the world.
Let’s do this:
I facilitate innovation mentoring in your organization, or facilitate mentorship via video livestream.
In-company mentoring in other countries than the Netherlands is absolutely possible, but please note that this has to be planned well in advance.
The online program edition of The Creative Achiever Method is currently being updated, thanks to the brilliant feedback I received from all my pilot course clients in 2016, 2017 and 2018. :-) Stay in the loop about the specifics on when the online program will become accessible again via FAST TRACK.
