Erik-Jan de Rooij

Founder

 

Erik-Jan was born in the Netherlands. After obtaining his Bachelor of Economics he visited the remotest corners of South-East Asia, immersing himself in different cultures and delighting in the purity, simplicity and thrill of entering the unknown.

A hunger to understand this more deeply drove him to become a Master of Business Anthropology at the VU in Amsterdam. During an expedition to the Yanomami Indians in the Amazon he examined anthropological theories in depth.

Erik-Jan also gained a wealth of practical experience in group processes and personal development as a field hockey goalkeeper for his club and the Dutch national team.
