Let me start with introducing myself as the founder of the Business Hippie Club. This way you get an idea of who and what you are dealing with.
Hans van de Rakt
I’m an expert in the empowerment of (business) people to make them flourish in personal and in business-life.
With a background in international business development I know how to find the balance between the rational business world, the local culture and the human way of doing.
I’m known for my creative solutions and asking the direct (uncomfortable) questions which leads to the core of the subject.
Getting excited when people are energized when they start to see and feel the alternative perspectives and step into action.
I started the Business Hippie Club with the simple idea (and somewhat naïve intention) of “things have to change in our society” To give this idea a more profound basis, I wrote an alternative model about a social economy based on human values.
our vision is a social economy based on human values
To empower this vision, we have to realize that running a business is the cause and at the same time the tool to enhance our society. This is why we have to change our perspective on the why and how we do business.
we’re on a mission to change the mindset about why and how we do business
As a next step we have to set a positive goal. For ourselves and our society. Because we have a joint urgency. This is why we have to set a positive dot at the horizon. To envision our ideal world ten years from now. So we know what we are working on and what our purpose is.
WHAT WE DO
- Organize workshops to individuals and teams on discovering and implementing your values.
- We coach entrepreneurs to make the transformation from a profit-oriented company to a purposeful business.
- We give presentations at public or in-company events by elaborating on why we need a social economic based on values and how to make this happen with our typical hippie approach.
