Full disclosure: Below you will find real quotes from real people that I have crossed paths with in the past. Either as colleague, customer, or client. None of these quotes were dictated or edited by me, but I did translate some from dutch to English in order to publish them here.
“I reflect on working with Arno with fond memories. When I began to work with him over 10 years ago his contribution to my personal and technical growth was like a springboard for my software development career. He is the right person for your company regardless of what business it is because he has the right attitude. In addition to doing his job, he will make people around him grow as was the case with me. He is one of those extraordinary people you meet from time to time. Don’t let him get away.”
— Arsen Yeremin
“I know Arno as someone who does not shy away from a difficult problem, but grabs it with both hands and turns it into an opportunity (such as tjil.nu). Additionally, he is honest about the struggles that come with it and can put difficult subjects into words. You do not always see that honesty/openness in our favorite internet gurus and it is refreshing.
That’s why I think he is an excellent personal mentor for anyone who is dealing with a difficult (business) problem.”
— Arjen Stens, Blackriver Tech
“Arno is calm and really takes the time to listen to you and then helps you. For example, by helping to prepare a difficult conversation I now feel strong and confident going into a conversation.
I feel I have gotten to know myself a lot better. My confidence has also improved greatly. I now dare to enter into situations that I used to walk away from!”
— José Hulzebosch (read her story)
“I have had the opportunity to work alongside Arno Jansen for several years and have experienced with how much passion and pleasure he can share knowledge. Entertaining learning!”
— Rick van Es
“Arno is a very nice guy. Talks and thinks from the heart. That really makes a difference. In addition, he is super smart (but far from arrogant).”
— Eelco Middelburg
“I can wholeheartedly recommend Arno. He knows his business but is above all a beautiful, committed and social person.“
— Janny Kerkdijk
