Saving the lives of people, including some of his colleagues and friends, that otherwise would have died from HIV/AIDS, is what Kurt calls the most gratifying ``Moment of Impact`` in his professional life. This was only possible through carefully building, inspiring, leading ànd challenging teams of highly complementary talented individuals. These teams were built to outperform competition, ànd they did!
In today's work as a founder of his own company Graphene. Works, Kurt starts from the observation that significant amounts of money and talent are often locked (and wasted) in teams and organizations without necessarily reaching a performance level needed to have meaningful impact, or create value, in tomorrow's world.
Moving from problem to solution, Kurt started working with and in organizations to explore how in a world of artificial intelligence, virtual reality, IoT, exponential- or value driven innovation, teams can be re-engineered to get to a level of ``augmented performance`` beyond business-as-usual. He hereby capitalizes on his own talent profile of being able to effectively build and lead teams of talented people to reach their ambitious goals. Indeed, as for himself, on an individual level, future generations of professionals will need to craft their own personal 'momentum' between intrinsic talent, basic education, personal energy ànd the deliberate choices on which teams to join, or not! To have impact, one should not accept mediocrity!
Through his current assignments, Kurt hopes to create unequivocal evidence that this relentless pursuit of individual ànd collective ``Augmented Performance`` will be key to create multiple future ``Moments of Impact`` and consequently ``Value For Society`` in the world ahead of us.
