Peter Smolders likes nothing better than building a good story. He did so in the many journalistic reports and books he wrote and the television series he made. In 2019, he started publishing house GrowingStories, specialising in non-fiction in which personal growth always plays a role. As early as 2020, its books can be found with some regularity in the Bestseller60.
Peter and Niek van den Adel have known each other since 2015, when they collaborated on Niek's biography Crash . That not only made them friends for life, but also ensured that they continued to work together. New books appeared within GrowingStories (Put the patient on 2, Put your students on 2) and within SpeakersClub, Peter coaches speakers on content. His strength: quickly finding the core of the message together with an (aspiring) speaker, building a keynote speech well and ultimately arriving at a story that draws the audience in.
