Expertise

Leonhardt van Efferink (photo) is Founding Director of GeoMeans. In earlier jobs as senior country risk analyst, he experienced the strong impact of strategic perceptions on organizational strategies. He became familiar with different approaches towards political and economic uncertainty.

Moreover, the several workshops that Leonhardt developed and moderated have been instrumental in gaining expertise in writing geopolitical scenarios in individual and group settings.

His expertise in media framing is rooted in his PhD project on German perceptions of countries (due in 2018).

The moderation style of Leonhardt is an important tool to make organizations more familiar with frames, risks and scenarios. His style is slightly provocative, yet engaging and inclusionary, always stimulating many people to join in the discussion. The result is a wider variety of expressed perceptions, thereby enriching the outcomes of our workshops.
