Currently, the portfolio contains business games from world leading simulation suppliers about Value Chain (The Fresh Connection), Supply Chain Finance (The Cool Connection), and Project Management (Palatine Project Leadership Experience). Apart from being certified trainer in these simulations, Ed is also their business partner, focussing particularly on Spain and Latin America.

Ed is fluent in English, Spanish and Dutch (native language) and also speaks a bit of German (intermediate level).

In April 2012, Ed’s first management book was published in Dutch, and it has since then been translated and published in two more languages: Spanish and English. The book is titled:

“The Perfect Pass: what the manager can learn from the footbal trainer”

It deals with the importance of seeing the BIG PICTURE, having good internal and external ALIGNMENT and achieving COHERENCE at all levels.

The Dutch paperback version can be bought online at (among others): Managementboek.nl or BOL.com.

The Spanish and English versions of the book have been published by the Barcelona-based publishing company Libros de Cabecera (“Bedside Books”). More information in LdC’s website. There you can find the paper version of the book in Spanish, as well as versions in ePub and Kindle in Spanish and English. The book is also for sale in Apple’s iBook Store.

Currently, Ed is busy writing a new book under the working title “Mastering the Supply Chain. Principles, practice and real-life applications“. Publication will be with UK-based Kogan Page Publishing, the book is due to appear in Q1, 2019.
