Jaap founded Elements Expeditions in 2012 because there were no initiatives that were about being in nature and had the right mix of remote locations, skilled facilitators and a no nonsense setup.
Born and raised on the small island Texel in the north of Holland, Jaap spent most of his youth near the ocean and in the dunes. On a daily basis he works with high performers (TEDX speakers, politicians) and clients on (corporate) leadership positions. Jaap is a straightforward psychologist, trusted sparring partner, clear thinker and feeler.
"My role within an expedition is simple: facilitate what's happening. Nature has enough to offer. We observe, feel, see, hear. That's it. This simple design takes a lot of molding and shaping. I love this process, that's why I love putting my effort and energy into Elements Expeditions"
