Interim Valley Talks with Els Visser

Els Visser is a professional triathlete. She studied medicine at Utrecht University and has a PhD in surgery. In 2014, she survived a shipwreck in Indonesia. In short: Els is a woman with a story. On 26 March she told this story to our own Adriaan de Heer during an online edition of Interim Valley Talks. It was a stimulating conversation to which viewers contributed by sending in their questions. The result? Numerous takeaways that are highly applicable to a corporate career. Here they are.

Leaders in Finance

Interim Valley is proud to sponsor the Leaders in Finance podcast.

On Leaders in Finance, Jeroen Broekema delves into the motivations and people behind the financial sector’s leaders on a personal level. Jeroen is convinced that, within the financial sector, we need to talk more. On his podcast, he offers guests plenty of space to tell their story: professional as well as private. The personal approach Jeroen takes, combined with the focus on the financial sector in which Interim Valley works, was the reason we decided to collaborate with Leaders in Finance.

Before starting this podcast, Jeroen Broekema was CEO of Funding Circle Nederland. He started his career at ABN AMRO.

Live Slow Ride Fast

An interview with former professional cyclist and entrepreneur Laurens ten Dam. We speak about Live Your Potential, his own company Live Slow Ride Fast and what kept him going during his career as a cyclist. Laurens finished the Tour de France ten times. In 2017 he supported Tom Dumoulin to his victory in the Giro d’Italia.

Take care of yourself

How do you look after yourself in a step-family with two pre-teens and a toddler? How do you find the space to work four days a week, exercise and maintain a social life? These are the questions that occupy me. To me, taking care of yourself is key.

Not tomorrow, but now

Not tomorrow, but now. A small, energetic baby in a loving family in Nieuw-Vennep. Adopted from Medellin, Colombia. As a baby curious, energetic and happy. As a toddler, always covered in bruises and bumps because I explore my physical limitations.

From Rotterdam to Rome

For me, Live Your Potential is cycling from Rotterdam to Rome with 16 friends. 12 days of fun while cycling 200 kilometres per day. I have wonderful memories of this trip conducted in 2010.
