Creative Mornings: Intention

“Intention is palpable. One person standing for something pales in comparison to a community fighting for something. Beautiful work is not on accident. Beauty grows from the seed of a clear intention.” 

Also planting good seeds of intention is our speaker for July, Sayida Goedhoop, director of Stichting Nieuw Thuis Rotterdam since the organization was founded at the end of 2015. By investing early on in housing, language acquisition and career coaching for refugees, the program aims for a faster integration of newcomers and thereby a social return for the city of Rotterdam. 

Previously, Sayida worked as sr. program manager at Stichting de Verre Bergen, the Rotterdam-based venture philanthropy organization that initiated and founded Stichting Nieuw Thuis Rotterdam. Empowerment and development of marginalized groups in society has been a key theme in her work. 

Sayida has a background in International Business Administration and holds a master degree in Finance & Investment from RSM Erasmus University. She started her career as a strategy consultant at Booz&Company (now Strategy& - part of PWC).
