Founder and co-owner of beGuru. Obsessed with productivity. Really obsessed.
Bas has helped countless organisations to get done more. In less time. And with less stress.
The best part of his job according to Bas? To be able to get to know an organisation. See what works and what can be improved. And then work with the client to tackle the biggest obstacles and create the best solution for them.
Bas is curious by nature. The experiences built up in the past decade and a half brings a lot of topics. He regularly speaks and writes about productivity.
All of his articles are about productivity, are written with respect to all involved, factually correct and – if possible – with a hint of humor. And that is the way it should be done – at least – if you ask him.
