Hi, I’m Geerte. I joined Philips last year in the midst of its transformation process, which is exciting, but challenging. The idea to also set a personal challenge and link this to a good cause really appealed to me, and the fact that I would be able to undertake this adventure with my partner Ralf and a great team of people is of course even greater! So here we are, setting off to climb the Kilimanjaro in June. I love sports, and climbing the Tungurahua in Ecuador and some volcano’s in Guatemala several years ago, I am really looking forward to this goal: the top of the Kilimanjaro at 5,892 meters! I hope that with our climb we will also be able to increase awareness for solar lighting projects on the African continent.
Sunshine, the outdoors, sports, laughter and any great ideas!
