Founder Quiet Quality

Journalism is where I started

Innovation became my passion

Creating awareness around introversion is the purpose of my own business

 

OPEN

This is me

I’m the  founder of Quiet Quality. My aim is to empower introverts like myself to use their full potential.

EXPERIENCE

2019 – current

Founder and CEO

Quiet Quality

Quiet Quality believes that every introvert should be empowered to use his or her full potential. Instead of adapting to an extroverted world, they should embrace their unique qualities and share them with the world. Because the world needs more reflection, peace of mind, active listening and leading from behind. Companies and universities can actively help introverts do so.
