Meet Anouk

Anouk Doore

Many years I worked as a consultant, at some of the Big 4 Companies and a smaller company. For a part of my job I had to travel and my running shoes where always a standard luggage item. Running kept me physically & mentally fit, no matter where I was, it was always an option. I had the opportunity to work 1 year in Canada, and there the sport-microbe hit me even more. I was close to the mountains and I mixed running with skiing. I worked hard, with passion and I discovered even more how sports and being outdoors, impacted my way of working and certainly my way of living. During these years I also witnessed what the opposite was doing with a lot of people…

Back home I didn’t want to give up what I experienced abroad. The mountains where not that close anymore so I needed to get myself organised and plan ahead. It motivated me to step into a new adventure. First of all, sports. Quite late I started to compete in international skimountaineering racing with an ambitious goal (for those interested, check it out) I managed to combine with my job as a consultant. After ending competitions, I combined working and studying and I became a physical coach. And soon it all came together. The people I train, the companies I work for as a freelance advisor, made me realize more and more how important wellbeing at work is. I started to study more about wellbeing and positive psychology. I don’t want to sound fluffy,… and I rather call it ‘workplace-happiness’. It’s the way I want to boost people to more experienced wellbeing because this will result in a better world of happy and healthy performers. I bring together my experience in sports and business to inspire people for new thinking to occur so that realistic and practical changes are made in daily lives!
