Gerrie has got 25 years of experience in industries that got disrupted by the internet, which makes him a hands-on expert in dealing with the impact of ‘digital’. Through his talks and workshops he’s inspired and helped a variety of clients, ranging from FMCG corporates to AI start-ups, from government agencies to the World Chambers Congress.
While he’s in top of digital trends, the words he uses (too) often are ‘user’, ‘why’ and ‘alignment’. A few years ago, he was so intrigued by blockchain, that he wrote a book about it (‘Blockchain is WTF’).
Before he fell in love with digital, he wrote about music, made television, founded 2 companies during his 15 years in London and was a civil servant. #generalist
