After living in the Netherlands for more than 40 years, Olaf and his family moved to West Kelowna in the heart of the Okanagan Valley. With two decades of experience in management roles in the food, entertainment, technology and travel sector, Olaf began looking for opportunities to harness his background and abilities for businesses in Kelowna and across Canada.

Two peers happened to separately ask for help with a lingering project they just couldn’t get off the ground because they lacked the resources and expertise. Olaf used his passion for planning and improving processes to find solutions and get their projects moving. Along the way, he discovered a market for helping organizations get their projects off the shelf and into action. And so, On The Shelf Opportunities (OTSO) was born. 

So, how can OTSO help you?  


“There’s no shame in asking for help in areas you struggle in and offering help in skills you excel in – that’s the way successful projects are built.”  –  Richard Branson
