Why in English?
We like to reach and connect Forward Thinkers all over the globe. Therefore we communicate in English.

our policy & security
Is it safe to share my thoughts?
‘Online’ and ‘safe’ and ‘dialogue’ do not often go together. We aim to be an exception!
In terms of your experience it will be so different from real life that it will go beyond safe – way further – towards great!
What are the house rules?
Within the Black Sheep Community we have a Code of Conduct. Inspired by the Socratic method our moderators will facilitate the interactions in the community. After signing up you will get a copy of this Code of Conduct. (Also valuable for other real life domains ; ) )
What to expect
Does Minke offer leadership coaching?
We do not offer individual leadership coaching.
Minke will be present in the community though, together with the moderation team.
Can I interview Minke?
For collaboration requests or press-related questions please send your message to contact @bvtf.nl.
I already have loads of emails. Will this contain a lot of emails?
After login you can enter the settings and email notification as you like them to be. So no worries there.
Who will I meet?
You will meet Forward Thinkers and Innovative Doers. Get inspired and inspire like minded people living to have a meaningful impact.
What result can I expect?
Like in real life, it will depend on your behaviour. Yet when you find the courage to actually engage in a dialogue and you are wise enough to spend some time here, in stead on Netflix, you will find everything you need to evolve from Forward Thinker to Thought Leader.
I am already quite successful. Is this for me too then?
Probably you wonder every now and then whether your success is the right success for you. And ask yourself whether you are on the right path. And maybe hope there is success for you with more meaning.
Whether you long more impact, more meaning or both, when you have read this website up until this point, the Black Sheep Community is the place for you.
