About Kim

Kim Spinder is an innovator on a mission... and she loves her work. With pleasure, Kim prepares organisations for the future, not by making action plans but by taking action. One of her favorite mottos: Just Do It!

Instead of starting with the usual action plans, Kim puts actions directly into practice - the quickest way to find out which ideas work best for an organisation and its people.

Passionate about smarter ways of working together, Kim took a radical step in 2010 and quit email to see what kind of difference it would actually make in her life and work. It was a huge difference. Still living email-free, Kim hasn’t looked back since.

Kim is an entrepreneur with extensive experience working with diverse organisations on their particular change assignments... such as "How do you develop a culture that promotes innovation within your company?". With specially developed In-company Innovation Programs, Kim leads participants to discover and develop their innovation skills, accelerate idea development, streamline communications, work in closer collaboration and foster an innovation culture within their organization.

Kim is author of the book: We Quit eMail, Join us and regain control of your work! Kim courageously gave up her email habit in 2010 and was so amazed by how it changed her life, she’s written a book to show us how we can go... email-free! Her book offers readers the option of an email diet and quitting program that can be adapted for those who want to try it out or go cold turkey!
