Bard Papegaaij
Your Lecturer

I am a philosopher, writer, practitioner and teacher with a deep compassion for the human condition and a burning desire to help people live better lives, do better work and create a more sustainable and socially connected society in the process. I have spent my whole life trying to understand what makes us humans tick. Even though I worked most of my professional career in the IT industry, I have always approached everything from the human angle: how does it make us feel, why do we behave in this way, how do we decide, how do we change - or don’t? I don't just talk about these things, I coach, mentor and facilitate workshops and off-sites for individuals, teams and even whole organisations.
