About Nicole Edelenbos

Nicole Edelenbos has seen and done a lot in her career. She has a legal and philosophical background. She has worked as a claims handler and underwriter at an industrial insurer, as a lawyer, and as a director and executive of various companies in diverse sectors such as insurance, real estate, football, media, and business services.

She also enjoys serving in supervisory roles at various organisations. Her philosophical background is particularly useful as she has been delving into dealing with and bridging differences for decades. Among people (gender, ethnicity, culture), between teams (merged, different functions), and between departments (mergers, reorganizations). True diversity is recognizing and acknowledging the otherness of others and valuing that and being willing to give space for it.

In 2015, she founded Future Female Leaders, an educational institute focusing on the personal development of leadership, particularly but not exclusively for ambitious women.

Nicole is an independent thinker with a distinctive style of decisiveness and clarity focused on personal connections and insight into people.
