Frankly, how comes he knows all this?

Quite simply: It comes from his own experience. He grew up with the first personal computers. Studied industrial engineering and entrepreneurship, being an entrepreneur besides his studies. After completing university (and a thesis on man-machine interfaces of the future), he set up a multimedia department within an IT company. In 1996, he founded one of the very first Internet agencies, ever, in the Netherlands. In 2004, he sold the agency and took a one-year sabbatical to work on New Work with Frithjof Bergmann. In 2006, he founded the digital strategy and marketing agency Click Effect, which he still owns and runs today. Over the years, he completed well over three hundred projects for large and medium-sized companies, often in industry and for hidden champions.

All his experience flows into his articles, whitepapers and books. “Digital within a year” (Wiley, 2017) and the “Digital Transformation Survival Handbook” (Campus, 2018) show how companies are coping with and mastering transformation in real life. Use his experience and energy to get your event going with a swing!
