Knowledge

Combining academic knowledge and practical experience

The founding principle of Propus is the intrinsic motivation to improve situations of humans and environments in critical need. From the start of his career, Kenny Meesters combined his expertise in information management and crisis management in several studies. He shares his vision, ideas, and opinions frequently and he will continue to share this on this website. Kenny believes in life long learning, continuous improvements, and how information technology can be used to scale and reach a large number of humans.
