I share insights about the future of work so business leaders can execute better talent strategies. Want to read my Future of Work newsletter? Find it at: newsletter.anitalettink.com

I help my clients to imagine 'what’s next' and understand what they can do today to attract and retain tomorrow's talent. My work offers a blend of outside-in observations and scenario thinking, is founded on data and helps you thrive in the new world of work.

I am passionate about strategy and innovation. As keynote speaker on the Future of Work I educate leaders on the opportunities and risks of their people strategies. My experience allows me to understand the complexities that businesses are faced with when defining and executing their digital transformation strategies, especially regarding current and future talent.

Before becoming partner at Strategic Management Centre, I was a member of the executive board at NGA Human Resources and globally responsible for strategy, alliances, and external communication. I am a diversity, belonging and inclusion advocate.

As partner of SMC, I focus on strategy, innovation and talent, with a heavy dose of tech. I am an experienced director and board member, both in the Netherlands and internationally, with profit and non-profit organizations. I participate in teaching academic executive programs. I have been recognized by Thinkers360 and others as Top 50 global thought leader on Future of Work and HR.

I have lived in the Netherlands, Germany and the United States and worked all over the world. I'm experienced in working with multinational organizations and adept at leading international, virtual teams.

When I'm not working, I enjoy a good run to see the sights. And I love to read paper books!

If you are curious about the future of work and want to know more, send me a connection request and we'll schedule a free introduction.
