Jan Bal

Connector - Accelerator - Wonderer and wanderer

Why would you like to work with this Bean?

Because he is like an osteopath. He squeezes, wrings, pushes, sometimes quite venomously on your sour spot… but afterwards you feel relief. Jan is an all-in kind of guy (from garbage trucks over youth work to business schools). This way he gathered an almost scary amount of knowledge and experience. Jan still loves putting on his boots and roll up his sleeves so things really get done. And before you even realise it, he has started an enthusiastic movement within your organization to join him on his quest.

Jan takes care of the daily operations at Beanmachine.

And when this Bean is not working

Mainly likes to be outdoor in nature… camping, cross country mountain biking, making fire, catching fish, hike in the mountains.

Spotifies all kinds of music that make his feet tap. According to Jan, this is called dancing.

Loves coffee and rum (not together in one cup).

Loves to work with his hands towards concrete results, f.e. by renovating houses.

Secretly dreams of becoming a baker man.

What makes this Bean boil?

The insincere use of the word ‘sorry’. And people who take no responsibility by simply pointing towards others.
