Bart van der Ven
In two sentences or less, what do you do?
I help companies to change and to acquire the ability to change.
And in your work: what are you most proud of?
That I support things that will have a sustainable business impact.
What do you think about pineapple on pizza?
Possible but bad combination.
If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be?
I would want there to be no more poverty.
Who was your childhood idol? Are you (almost) there?
Bernard Hinault. Won the Tour de France five times. He was nicknamed The Badger because he was so cunning. He was offensively aggressive and always surprising. A truly beautiful cyclist.
No, I’m not much like him but I’ve never aspired to be either.
It’s almost Valentine’s Day and I need some inspiration. What is your idea of an ideal or most romantic date?
In the winter, roughing it with a bonfire, a nice beer and roasted sausages. Then curling up under a sheepskin blanket. Somewhere in the Netherlands. Not too complicated.
