André van Kempen

My core strengths lie within the fields of organizational growth, company culture development, growth hacking, and eCommerce + eLearning.

Already my whole life, I’m seeking to solve challenges in a creative way. In 2005 I founded my first company, and in 2009 I founded together with my old companion Wim La Haye Techtwo, now known as Blue Bird Day. Proudly I can say they are three years in a row, awarded the number 1 e-commerce agency in the Emerce top 100 of the Netherlands.

Staring in the recession in the deep competitive red ocean of web-development wasn’t easy. However, the great thing was, it taught me to see failure as an opportunity to learn and grow; it allowed me to celebrate victories and create a culture where we inspire each other by example. Unfortunately enough in 2016, I needed to discover the hard way that something was missing; the stress and lack of purpose burned me out and revealed my years of substance abuse. I needed to make a shift, breaking my old habits and unhealthy patterns; I needed to re-connect with myself.

My journey guided me towards crazy things like; 10-days water fasting, 30 days of Muay Thai boxing camp, 14-days in silence with monks, implementing scrum to invent a new menu in the Balinese kitchen, giving lectures and inspirational talks in co-working spaces, hosting brainstorms on the Gili islands, living the nomadic lifestyle and volunteering in a mindful recovery community in Thailand.

Nowadays I’m using my creative entrepreneurial view, combined with 10+ years of business development knowledge as well as experience in design, e-learning, sales, marketing, and development blended with the wisdom I gained on my journey to support leaders and organizations to hack their growth.

André is very creative. His brain forms strategic solutions for people and companies. A man with a story, a man with a vision. Partly because of André, I am as an entrepreneur where I am now. He works from his heart and that touches me, which is why we are buddies too. Would I recommend this man? YES YES YES
