The Passions Behind the People
Each month we will be sharing the passions behind the people in the DMC Network...
This month the spotlight is on Miek Egberts, Owner of InspireME Monte-Carlo our DMC partner in Monaco.
The time of day... I love early mornings! I spend some time meditating while everyone is still asleep. I also enjoy the end of the day - sunsets in Tuscany with the most beautiful scenery- the views of the vineyards and a glass of our own homemade wine in hand.
The book... I love to read early in the morning, before the day starts. I read several books at once! At the moment I am reading The Storyteller of Pierre Jarawan – a magnificent book by an award winning German-lLebanese poet and novelist.. a real storyteller. One of my all time favourite books is The Dark Room of Damockles, by the Dutch writer Willem Frederik Hermans.
The TV show... I don’t watch too much TV, but I do enjoy Suits and Designated Survivor with my children – they are great at finding a good Netflix show!
The necessity... I want to leave the world a better place, to me that is a necessity. My work on sustainable values extends beyond my personal life and has become an intrical part of my work as well.
The luxury... Time. For me, that is a real luxury. Time to enjoy my children, my husband, my mother, my sister and my friends.
The friend… I am truly blessed with the friendships that I have across the globe, particularly through my involvement in SITE. Special mention to one particularly special friend, Anja. We have been friends since we were 13, she has been there through everything ☺.
The treat… We often forget, but we should give ourselves more treats! I love browsing through photo albums, and copying out my favorite passages from books and adding them to my collections of quotations –this gives me such a sense of calmness and happiness.
The movie… I have so many favourite movies, it’s hard to pick just one! Les Uns et Les Autres , Schindlers List, Cinema Paradiso, The Last Emperor, Last Tango in Paris Soldaat van Oranje, Huit et Demi… quite an eclectic mix!
The hobby… Walking along the seaside with our dog Benjamin, a Jack Russell. I love the sound of the rolling waves, the fresh sea air and the wind through my hair.
The vacation… I love to travel and explore new cultures, people, history and the arts. I love to learn about different lifestyles, experience different cuisines…travel is truly my passion! I have particularly fond memories of my travels to Persia, Iran, with my Mom. Next year I hope to visit India.
