Our Team

Tim Spijker

Managing Director - SOLS smart



I help organisations to grow their most important asset: their people. This starts with identifying their values, goals, and training needs. This usually happens over an informal coffee chat before engaging into a more long-term partnership.

I have worked in the education sector in Malaysia since 2011. My Dutch roots, combined with my international experience, gives me a well-rounded perspective on education and human capital development. I have grown my skills in end-to-end project management, education management, and impact assessment, through having worked with a plethora of companies, ministries, agencies, and academic institutions, on large-scale education and training programmes.

I love the work I do and I have turned my passion into a career. I work daily on education programmes that help people and organisations to grow and become a better version of themselves. It gives me a great sense of joy and satisfaction when this happens as I know how hard change can be at first. But when it happens, the results are mind-blowing. Education truly is the most powerful weapon to change the world – no matter what industry or job you are in.
