Chantal Klaver is New Learning & Leisure Expert Consultant at Except. During her career in healthcare as a HR Manager she was offered the opportunity to develop the HR department. Due to the changing healthcare legislation in the Netherlands in 2006, the company she worked for asked her to facilitate the integration of this legislation into the organisations of current and prospective clients. As a result, she decided to become an independent business administration consultant, and subsequently noticed a rise in the number of free agents as well as in the demand for new business models. This led to questions about how to integrate social entrepreneurship, community building and sustainability.
