Arjen Lemstra is a networking expert, bon vivant, optimist and also an entrepreneur since 1995. His brand name? 'Mister Nice Guy'.
As a key pivot within the Dutch events industry, Arjen Lemstra enjoys connecting people and companies. He has a huge network and knows better than anyone how high its value is. All important decisions he has made in his life have been provided by his network. During his keynote, he can therefore use striking examples to tell all about the importance of a strong network and how to deal with it. As a speaker, he enjoys taking his audience through the one attribute he believes is what it is all about.
Arjen also likes to share hard entrepreneurial lessons from the past 28 years. In 2013, his company almost went bankrupt due to the wrong business model and focus. 9 years later, with 400 exhibitors and 3,500 visitors, his trade fair EventSummit is the largest one-day platform for the total event and festival industry in the Netherlands.
