the power of little things

Jaap Bressers

Inspirational speaker Jaap Bressers (1983) has since childhood only one goal: to make the most out of life.

His early dream: after his University degree in International Management becoming a high ranking manager. At the age of 21 everything changes. An afternoon swim in the ocean turns into a high spinal cord injury. After a heavy physical rehabilitation period, Jaap decides to give his life a completely different twist. Today Jaap mainly performs for businesses. He shares his life lessons with his audience. He connects compelling and personal stories to challenges in organizations and knows, like no other, how to touch people’s hearts and entertain. Jaap is also the author of one of the best-sold management books in the Netherlands: "Where there's a wheel, there's a way!"

Carlos-moment: Dare to be different

The connecting thread through it all is Jaap’s message about the power of little things. How can you make a difference for yourself and for others? Just how big this power of little things is, Jaap discovered thanks to Carlos, the Portuguese nurse who with one small gesture gave Jaap back the sense of strength to never give up. It’s no wonder that these days ‘Carlos-moments’ are an understanding for anyone and everyone who has seen Jaap on stage. Break the famous pattern of "We always do it this way." Dare to be different or do things differently. Not because the way of the past was wrong, but maybe because in present time this new way might be better or has more added value.
