My name is Mark de Koning (1966). After I graduated in public administration I started working as a management consultant. Now I work for various organizations, both in the profit and in the non profit sector.
After some very instructive years at various management consulting firms I am currently working independently with my own company: De Koning Organisatie, Creativiteit en Ontwikkeling (De Koning Organization, Creativity and Development).
With this firm I want to combine my professionality as a management consultant with my pleasure and my passion for change and innovation. The approach is suitable for every organization that wants to clear the way for creative development, open debate, professional passion and that wants to work towards an imaginative future. Do not let the everyday patterns restrict you but look for a new perspective.
Clients vary from managers, directors, and works council members to instructors, consultants and project managers. The issues raised often deal with a chosen or forced change in the organization but also with the amazement at current developments and the ambition to create something new.
From my childhood I have been hooked on the power of images and cartoons in particular. When I entered the profession of management consultant I was surprised to find that words, both spoken and written, seemed to dominate the discourse. Then I started to take my doodles in the margin seriously and use them as a method to make the indiscussible discussible. This way I have combined my passion for cartoons with my professional powers of observation and my background as an organization expert.
