My personal story
Maximizing human potential in ‘high-performance industries’
Founder KM Human Factors Engineering
My name is Koos Meijer, and I am the founder of KM Human Factors Engineering and Somnoblue. In the video above, I explain why I became motivated to help others in reaching their full potential. I apply scientific knowledge about the brain, sleep, the biological clock, and light therapy to find suitable optimization solutions for various ‘high-performance’ teams and organizations. In recent years I’ve provided workshops and training in industries such as the military, law, consultancy, top sports, healthcare, and the offshore industry.
I founded Somnoblue to help people to sleep better by focusing on the power of darkness. Somnoblue provides special blue light-filtering sleep glasses that have to be worn about one hour before bedtime. The use of the glasses allows melatonin, ‘the night hormone’ to be secreted naturally and more effectively. Consistent use of the glasses can help to fall into a deep sleep more quickly.
I have a passion for teaching and providing training. This passion grew during my study of Psychology at Leiden University. There I’ve provided lectures in seven different bachelor courses. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology and Civil Engineering, I also have a Master’s degree in Applied Cognitive Psychology. Furthermore, I hold all the required offshore training certificates.
Are you interested in a potential collaboration? Please give me a call or email me.
