With more than 20 years experience in HR, Estelle has worked in the IT, Property, Banking and Consultancy sectors and has a philosophy aimed at challenging the status quo.
Her goal has always been to build diverse atmospheres where culture can thrive and flourish. Working for start-ups & SMEs has been a big part of Estelle’s experience. She has taken small teams to international levels building diverse teams and high performing Talent Acquisition and People Operations teams.
Some of her most recent experience included preparing and successfully securing a technology company for IPO where HR was one of the key areas of interest. At the start of 2018, Estelle started her own People and Talent Development consultancy – Stellar People – based in Amsterdam. Her focus was to work with companies in the growth phase of their business, helping them scale while aligning their People and Business strategy.
Understanding the importance of promoting women in business and, more importantly, technology, Estelle was integral to establishing a strong female workforce in the People Operations team of cloud technology company Cloudreach. She also set an example for the rest of the business; during this time, she increased the global female workforce from 7% in 2012 to 23% by 2017.
Estelle’s experience is rooted in stand-alone strategic HR generalist roles, with a strong focus on talent acquisition, people development, training, consultancy, mobile workforce and mentoring.
