Say welcome to our newly appointed TEDxAmsterdam Managing Director, Varinia Kolen, who is full of energy! "I think it’s quite unique what we’re doing, all together, creating value. But mostly, I think I’m looking forward to making people ‘shine’, to place them in a role where they can use their strengths. It’s my job to put them in the best position to perform well.”
It´s a time for joy but also a time for sorrow. As we get ready to launch this years TEDxAmsterdam campaign, we sadly also have to say farewell to one of the most established members of the team – a man of immense charisma and talent - Jan Scheele.
“Best was definitely, when I was joining our speaker Matt Stopera, who spoke about his lost phone, to 2 different partner events. During that afternoon I had to remind him 8 times that he forgot his phone in the car, makeup room etc :). Almost enough material for another talk!”.
