Paul Donkers (Ten company)

I work on the execution & people side of strategy. Entrepreneurial and translating purpose into strategy and performance.

My career started as General Manager for a Fortune 500 company. I felt fortunate for the chance to work as intrapreneur in those years. In 2000, I introduced a consulting firm from New York in The Netherlands and built it from scratch into a profitable market leader in a decade. Early 2009, I took a leap of faith. I decided to do a start-up.

Through experience I learned what it takes to work as line management executive. To have corporate success and to make my share of mistakes. In the last decade I’ve experienced what it takes to create and grow a new company.

Working as independent entrepreneur today ànd my background as corporate executive enable me to be a soundboard for our clients. As coach, consultant, speaker, trainer and facilitator.
