Why ToolBox?

The common thread in my career and my extra-professional commitments is the social dimension. I like to work in an organisation for which the goal goes beyond a purely commercial interest, preferably in an environment that bridges the gap between different cultures. At Fost Plus, I have always worked within a context in which the business community, together with governments, shall come up with supported solutions for a social challenge, in particular reducing the impact of packaging on our environment. 

At ToolBox I find some key elements that are important to me. The aim of ToolBox has an undeniable strong social impact. Moreover, the organisation is very professionally organised, which is of course closely linked to the mission to improve the management of associations. In this way, ToolBox shows that its story has really been lived through. And for me, it is also an added value that all of this takes place within a Belgian context, where Dutch-speakers and French-speakers meet each other.
