Hermann van Holt MEM, managing-director Sardes

In 2017-2018 I worked together for a year with Sonja Bleuland van Oordt in the implementation of the program ´All about Health`. In her role as head of the program office, Sonja was responsible for the daily management and future development of the program. I have got to know her as a self-conscious, decisive, hands-on manager and executor who is at the same time open to new ways and not-everyday solutions. Sonja has a pioneering spirit, knows how to find the balance in the political field, and anticipates on what is coming. This way she and her colleagues have managed within three years to create a network of thousands of organizations that are all committed to a healthier and more vital Netherlands. An admirable result!
