As an author and co-founder at 365DagenSuccesvol.nl in Amsterdam, Arjan Vergeer was once upon a time a very ‘successful’ man. His apparent happiness and the early departure of a good friend triggered in him a wake up call: how to make the most out of his life and help others find their voice along the way? Together with David de Kock, they have the mission to make the Netherlands the happiest country in the world by 2020. Arjan will be leading a workshop on April 20th, so we asked him a few questions to get to know him better.
