Jeroen van IJzendoorn

What do you do?
I’m a strategic brand coach and creative concept developer.

And in your work: what are you most proud of? 
I’m most proud of the fact that I’m able to bring out the best in the brands we coach. I don’t give advice; I help people on their way. To make sure the brand remains the clients’ brand, and never too much ‘my brand’. 

What do you think about pineapple on pizza?
Bullshit.

If you could change one thing about the world, what would it be? 
I’d make it so that not everything is about money.

Who was your childhood idol? Are you (almost) there?
Prince.

Am I there? Yes and no. On the one hand, I think I’ve adopted his weirdness at times. But on the other hand, one of our mottos is never grow up, and also never stop learning. So, you’re never quite ‘there’, it’s always about the process.

 
 

It’s almost Valentine’s Day and I need some inspiration. What is your idea of an ideal or most romantic date? 
Being able to speak without saying a word.
