Join Nick Craig as he sits down with Sandra Schoonhoven, Head of Sustainability at ING to discuss the power of Purpose and how “serving elephant for dinner” helps her adapt to the ever-changing world of sustainability.
During their conversation, Sandra shares how Purpose has impacted her as a leader and how it has provided new and deeper insights into her own life experiences, especially in her most challenging moments.
She also shares why she feels knowing and understanding your Purpose truly is a gift, and how she’s helped share that gift with her team so that they feel as empowered as she does.
Together, they drive ING’s sustainability efforts which include limiting the negative impacts of climate change, educating their customers on financial health, and using their influence to make the world a better place.

They share a very intimate side of the experience – facing the isolation, the worry, and the physical manifestations. Having to think through their life and come to peace with the chance of death is something most of us do not experience suddenly. Both share how their extensive work in knowing their purpose was a leading force in their recovery.
