Who is Martine Derde?

I am action and result driven, however always in combination with underlining the high importance of communication: “the right word in the right way at the right time”.

Respect is of the utmost importance to me, as is active listening.

In everything I do and undertake, I premise righteousness and fairness.

I have more than 20 years of experience in people management, general management, operational, project and change management, in several domains (HRM, IT, logistics,…) and in many different sectors with a focus on non profit, healthcare and small and medium large enterprises.

I keep focus, and work in a hands-on, pragmatic way.

I am pro-active with a no-nonsense and down-to-earth attitude, a quick self-starter, with strong analytic and synthetic skills.

I am an open and diplomatic communicator, bridge-builder, fully recognizing the importance of the different stakeholders in an organization.

I always look for motivating quick-wins that serve the long-term strategic goals and solutions.

I love to close the gap between the business needs and the technical and legal demands, restrictions and opportunities.

I am a strong believer in people’s abilities and willingness, and in the power of motivation and independence.

  • General project and change management (Prince II)
  • Business process analysis and optimization
  • Operational interim management
  • HRM management (competence management, talent management, performance management)

How others experience working with Martine

Marc Van hammée Huisarts, Gemeenteraadslid stad Mechelen, Ondervoorzitter bij Woonpunt Mechelen
Martine is een sterke leidinggevende. Ze heeft een analytische geest, is sterk in het aanpakken van problemen en doet dit op de meest menselijke manier maar dit belet haar niet haar target te behalen. Ze is in staat op korte termijn de gebreken en sterke punten van zowel een organisatie als haar medewerkers in te schatten en een goed doordacht plan van aanpak op te stellen. Dit koppelt ze aan een goede werkethos en sterk engagement.
Eddy De Boek Interim Manager
Martine is very professional and dedicated to the job. During the time she worked for me as an indirect report, she demonstrated she is eager to accept new challenges and learn quickly.
Jan Smets Director Retail and Customer Care at bpost
Martine is a result oriented project manager, delivering quality within agreed upon timeframes. She is pro-active in identifying, reporting and managing issues.
She impressed with the ability to combine IT and business insights.

Despite sometimes difficult working conditions (high stress projects with conflicting interests), her personality allows her to maintain excellent relationships with all parties involved.
