IJkje Clotscher

Operations Manager

Amsterdam Economic Board

Focus: supporting people, projects and processes

For IJkje, distinguishing between main and side issues lays a foundation for keeping a good overview. As does zooming out of automatism at the right moments. The assignment or intention is always the starting point. Being curious, looking for what’s behind a question and above all: keep an eye out for the interests at stake. Your own as well as others’.

As a member of the staff team, IJkje ensures that employees can do their work efficiently and effectively. They support programmes, projects and initiatives. IJkje also works within House of Skills as a coordinator Trainen & Veranderen (Training & Change) and she is secretary for the Skillspassport. At Amsterdam Economic Board, it all comes together for her: connecting, boosting, focusing together on opportunities to achieve results on themes that actually matter.

“If you feel that matters aren’t progressing as they should, it might help to ask: why do we do the things we do?”
