About the speaker

Bio written by this human: Hi there, Erik is the name and Human is the specie. I’m born in a world far far away with golden Chiquita bananas and seductive salsa dancers, but raised in a land ruled by IKEA (or Zlatan, we still argue about that). I mess with the perception of being and ignite the reflection of living, one life lesson after another. You often find me at 10.000 feet writing or in an exotic location like Cologne, giving a speech and guidance on how to create rich and healthy brands and lifestyles, with the hope to create a world where we all live a fulfilling life. In April’s topic “Inclusive”, I invite you, I challenge you, to come to explore how to connect with the humans behind the job title and foster inclusivity, by exploring the ancient force of vulnerability and storytelling. Your story matters!

Bio written by those PR humans: Erik has been quoted as an “electric keynote speaker, a “muse” and awarded internationally for his “no bullshit” approach and ability to “put a positive spin on everything.” In 2017, Erik was recognized as one of Europe’s top influencers on LinkedIn as the Founder of Connecting Humans and Co-Founder of LinkedIn Local. After 14 years across 9 countries from China to the USA, often the youngest with a leadership role in companies such as Louis Vuitton and Shangri-La Hotels, with the mission to connect teams, leaders and customers, Erik started his own business. Now, he gives speeches and coaching on how to create and transform business and well-being through a human connection in leadership and communication. Erik’s vision is to create a world where we all live a fulfilling life, and within three years he has crafted an impressive portfolio of brands such as Johnson & Johnson, AXA, EIGE and Deloitte.
