raymond de looze

Raymond de Looze (1976) is a business administrator and lawyer who, after an international career in the field of complex reorganizations, turned to his true passion: people strategy. About the relationship between organizations and their people, and their development. He challenges critical self-examination with simple words and humor. From sharp observations, he sometimes confronts firmly, but in a pleasant way.

He debuted his first book on personal development, DIY Guru, in 2020. Less than 10 months later, his second book was published: How to Become the Best Version of Yourself - and Why You Especially Shouldn't Want to. His third book, co-written with Laurens Simonse, The Rockstars Method, will be published in September 2023.

In addition to being a writer, he is co-founder of Double-OO, which helps organizations make the greatest possible positive impact on their people. He has a special talent for bringing together the hard side (data, processes, euros) and soft side (connection, trust, commitment). In his view, both are crucial to a successful, sustainable organization that can make a real impact on people. He fills his free time with sports, cooking, theater, music and travel. He has a fondness for Romance languages.

Raymond always vetoes out of curiosity. The desire to unravel how an organization or person is put together. He and Laurens did the same for Team Rockstars IT.
