She is an internationally leading consultant, speaker and certified Business Continuity Planning (BCP), Information Security & Risk Management trainer.

Rinske has been changing the way organisations ‘plan for the unexpected’. Her powerful facilitation skills enable organisations to prioritise, cut through information quickly and simplify their processes. She applies a fresh, energetic, fun, practical, easy-to-apply, innovative approach to BCP, Security, Risk and Disaster Recovery… topics often perceived as dull and cumbersome.
Her alter ego includes being lead singer and manager of SophieG, which is involved in major music projects – including those contributing to the global charity Playing For Change, which provides music education to children in disadvantaged regions.
