Irene Janssen: 'In this episode I speak with Sonja van Uden. Sonja was a great project manager, managing with to-do-lists, and a strong focus on processes. It was what made here a rising star in her industry. But it also got her the nick-name the Dutch Ice Queen. And made her feel lonely as an expat project manager in Norway. She decided, in the first place to have a more enjoyable time to do things differently and shift her focus to her colleagues. This shift became the basis for her research in which she unravelled the mystery of successful projects. Watch and listen to Sonja van Uden (in Dutch), author of The People Factor.'

Maaike van Meulen: 'Sonja van Uden worked as an international project manager in Houston, Norway, Afrika, Germany and Singapore. Colleagues called her the Dutch Ice Queen due to her pragmatic and rational working method. It made her lonely and led to her choice to shift her focus to the people in projects, but how to do this? She discovered this to be a topic under investigated, started her own research and wrote a book about it; 'The People Factor; The Next Leap in Project Management'. During the journey of writing the book it took Sonja courage to look at her own personal questions and stories. 'Keep putting one foot in front of the other and you'll get better and more knowledgable' says Sonja. Listen to Sonja's journey (in Dutch) in this inspiring podcast filled with tips and insights. Just for you!'
