Division: The Agency
Practice: Digital, Branding & Communications
ASK ME ABOUT:
Creating sustainable ways of living for future generations, commandeering oil tankers, or how I once wrote a musical about life in my home town.
AND FOR THE REST OF THE STORY:
You’d need a flamethrower to light up a room any faster than Laurens. Equal parts recruiter, humanitarian and benevolent gadfly, our own Flying Dutchman has a lust for life that requires no caffeine. Indeed, just spend a few minutes around him and you’ll start to believe in human beings as rocket fuel. Recruitment for him is all about creating win-win-win situations: “If an introduction is beneficial for my clients and candidates, I create an environment of positive synergy,“ says the Rotterdam native. “That’s what drives me in this business every day.” Becoming a principal at The Agency means joining what he calls a unique team of highly skilled consultants who operate independently while keeping a strong sense of unity and collaboration. No wonder this born communicator feels right at home with us. When not blowing up our consumer division, Laurens will be leveraging his many passions – Thai kickboxing, scuba diving, motorbiking and cleaning up forest trash – to motivate young people to empower themselves and make this a better planet.
