Multi-passionate innovator and Better time use advocate

A better time use advocate since 2011, when she founded the Dutch branch of the B-Society after experiencing the challenges of being a working parent night owl in our early bird society. Ticia has a background in social psychology and 20 years experience in ICT and organisational consultancy.

She is a multi-passionate innovator in a variety of fields including children's rights, educational reform, giftedness and late chronotype (night owl) emancipation.

Broadening the scope of B-Society she founded the Better Times Platform in 2015 together with a.o. Conny Bergé and they launched the Health time! (Gezondtijd!) initiative against Daylight Saving Time and for geographically appropriate time zones in 2019.

Better Times Platform: www.beteretijden.org (Platform Betere Tijden) believes that we all have much to gain if we take our biological clocks and biorhythms into account. At work, in school, on the road and when receiving healthcare. Not doing so is costing us all dearly!
