Welcome here!

Welcome to the website of Paul van Doorn

previously PvD Consultancy AB

Since 2021-06, I no longer run company PvD Consultancy AB. The reason for this is that I currently have a full-time employment. It makes no sense keeping the company alive so I ended it.

However, I would like to take the opportunity to thank all customers that put their trust in me and hired me for my enthusiasm and expertise – much appreciated.

No worries!
My trusty old website remains, albeit with slightly adjusted content in order to match the new reality. Of course my expertise is not lost and still available for smaller and bigger contracting projects within the area’s of my expertise.

Have you noticed that my new books are out? No? check out the link on the left side of this page (or below on the mobile page), or click here.
