I help people and organizations improve high-stress, high-consequence decision-making. I have trained hundreds of people on Situational Awareness. Furthermore, I have a specific interest in the topic of technology and situational awareness. Iโ€™ve spoken about this topic globally, published award-winning papers, recorded podcasts, and consulted startups.

I have a 25+ year career in the fire service, currently serving as a captain. Furthermore, I am the owner of Netage B.V. for 25+ years, I have been involved with numerous global data standard organizations and innovation projects in emergency response. I hold a guest position at the VU university at the Human Centric Data Science group.

My message has been featured in Forbes magazine, Smart Fire fighting podcasts and at conferences globally, and it has helped hundreds of people (just like you) better understand how their brain works in high risk, high consequence decision-making situations.

Reach out to me for:

โœ… Situational Awareness Training.
โœ… Site surveys
โœ… Incident reviews
โœ… Keynotes and talks on the subject of AI and high-risk decision-making.
โœ… Consultancy on the subject of Human Factors and UX design.

Hereโ€™s what a few participants said about my trainings and presentation:

โ€œIt is the best training I have had in yearsโ€

โ€œThanks for giving the presentation. It was by far the best one that I attended across the whole eventโ€

โ€œWe don’t spend enough time talking about human factors in the fire serviceโ€

โ€œYou are the first person to address the human and technology interaction so detailed in our professionโ€
