Upstream - The Newsletter of Incentive FM Group

Afgestudeerd!* Achieved what I was aiming for

Pleun van DeurssenMy name is Pleun van Deurssen - also known as “the intern”. Originally from the Netherlands, I studied International Real Estate and Facility Management in Breda - a four year course learning about the ins and outs of facility management. We all know that facility management is such a broad industry, and is hard to learn in only four years. Therefore I specialised myself in a particular subject, I decided to kick off my graduation year studying change management, followed by an internship practicing my knowledge.

January 2013, Incentive FM gave me the opportunity to work as an assistant project manager working on the new system implementation for human resources and payroll as well as a rostering system. Challenge accepted, I moved to London for my next adventure.

In addition to my internship, a bachelor thesis with my own preferred subject had to be written. In consultation with Bill Pollard and Laura Phillips, I identified the need for a corporate identity for future success at Incentive FM.

After ten months of being with Incentive FM, I finally graduated from the NHTV University of Applied Sciences. At the moment I am proposing the changes to the board and looking forward to implement my findings in the next few months. After that? Ready to accept any challenges and new adventures crossing my path in the facility management industry.
