‘Letting go of fixed patterns, postponing your judgment, taking a different perspective and making mistakes; it’s all part of innovation. And it is also exactly how Marieke leads the Ynnovate team in the Netherlands. Marieke started as Innovation Booster at Ynnovate, after which she stepped up as co-owner and our energetic podcast host. Marieke is passionately committed to more innovation in the public sector. She is Ynnovate’s bouncing ball and an eternal optimist. “Yes-but” is almost non-existent in her vocabulary.
