“Finding out about the motives of people and organisations is a source of inexhaustible interest and curiosity for me. Why are organisations, but also family and friends, not always clear and transparent in their actions? Behind every person and behind every company there is a story, sometimes a long and complicated one, sometimes a short and simple one, but mostly the reason for past and present behaviour.”
