With more than 25 years of experience in management roles in industries like food, entertainment, technology and travel, Olaf Dijkstra is always looking for new opportunities to harness his background and abilities for businesses in the Netherlands or Canada.

In 2011, Olaf and his family moved to West Kelowna, British Columbia, Canada. He succeeded in helping several medium and small sized companies with projects in software, production, sales and travel. After twelve years of Canadian adventure, Olaf went back to the Netherlands to continue his projects and adding new ones.

The idea of On The Shelf Opportunities (OTSO) was sparked, when 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 organisations 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
