Jaco Ottink behoort tot één van de weinige mensen in de wereld die de Explorers Grand Slam (Seven Summits, plus de Noordpool en de Zuidpool) heeft voltooid....
Jaco Ottink is geboren in Nederland. Zijn huidige woon- en werkplaats is Londen. Jaco Ottink heeft een passie voor het geven van lezingen, wereldwijd, waardoor dit hem een echte ‘global citizen’ maakt. Na zijn succesvolle beklimming van Mount Everest en door zijn ski expedities naar de Noord en de Zuid Pool, behoort hij nu tot één van de weinige mensen in de wereld die de Explorers Grand Slam (de hoogste berg op elk van de 7 continenten en beide polen) hebben volbracht. Daarnaast heeft hij bijna twintig jaar wereldwijde verkoopervaring in de FMCG-industrie. Deze combinatie maakt hem uniek voor zijn publiek, welke één op één kan zijn, voor een menigte of samen met een leiderschapsteam.
Elke dag stellen we onszelf een doel en voordat we dit doel zelfs bereiken, hebben we al een nieuw doel. Maar wat doen we met onze eigen dromen? Als een ontdekker van de wereld, heeft Jaco zichzelf doelen gesteld die altijd uit een droom voortkomen. Om die reden is hij ervan overtuigd dat we als kind, als tiener of als volwassene, moeten durven dromen. Deze dromen moeten ons uitdagen, verrijken, ons energie kosten en ook energie geven, maar ze moeten ook in ons individuele leven passen. Dare to Dream klinkt eenvoudig, maar nemen we de tijd om na te denken over onze persoonlijke visie en als we dat doen, zijn we in staat dit te vertalen in onze dagelijkse bedrijfsvoering?
Zijn 20-jarige reis om de Explorers Grand Slam te volbrengen in combinatie met zeer extreme mentale en fysieke uitdagingen, komen 100% overeen met de wereld waarin we werken en leven, maar dan vanuit een andere invalshoek. Terwijl het verhaal zich ontvouwt, zal Jaco de groep betrekken bij het oplossen van enkele uitdagingen of dilemma's, waarmee hij werd geconfronteerd tijdens vele van zijn expedities over de wereld. Waaronder:
• Een ultieme voorbereiding is 90% van het succes
• Een ijzeren discipline (goed is niet altijd goed genoeg)
• Wat is je doel? (hoe ziet succes er uit)
• Mentale gezondheid en de waarde daarvan
• Team speler versus een eigen doel
• Externe omstandigheden, welke van invloed zijn op je succes
• Waarom vertrouwen we mensen om ons heen?
• Wat is je moment van omdraaien (een bevroren oog. 3 weken pijn?)
• Wanneer is het moment om succes te vieren?
Jaco Ottink zijn ambitie is om het publiek met de volgende kernboodschappen te overtuigen:
• Durf je droom te achtervolgen, geloof in jezelf dat JIJ het kunt doen!
• Ben je bewust van de Key Drivers om succesvol te zijn
• Dromen realiseren betekent een ijzeren discipline, perfecte voorbereiding en doorzettingsvermogen
Daarnaast is zijn verwachting dat de aanwezigen zijn verhalen, workshops en coaching mee naar huis en naar de werkvloer zullen nemen. En dat zijn inzichten en inspiratie het verwezenlijken van hun dromen zal versnellen.
Dank voor je komst, het was een succes! De invloed van digitale technologie is een heel actueel onderwerp en voor velen een eye-opener. Ook de manier waarop Carlijn het presenteerden werd door iedereen gewaardeerd, afwisselend, leuk en informatief.

Jaco Ottink is an exceptional Mentor. I have the privilege to have Jaco as my Mentor since 2013. Since then, Jaco and I have met together every three months to discuss my professional and personal journey and goals. Jaco has the ability to be truly empathic and provide powerful feedback and guidance to both my professional and personal journeys. As a result of Jaco’s mentoring, it has allowed me to establish much stronger and clearer personal values and professional goals in my life.
Jaco Ottink, motivational speaker, conqueror of Mount Everest and the remaining six highest peaks of each continent came to our high school. Based on previous experience, both from 20 years of work in the international corporation, personal life and successful expeditions demanding iron discipline, perseverance and courage in the realization of dreams, this courageous Dutchman has become an inspiring unit for change.
An hour-long meeting with Jaco was not only a story of an extremely interesting man about the hardships and challenges of gripping eight-thousands or the North Pole, but also a personal story, a journey into himself and asking himself questions about goals, values ??and the degree of determination that can be potentially each one of us. Maybe we will not be the best at what we do, but how much satisfaction is there going beyond the sphere of comfort and developing our own potential! Thanks again, the teachers and students were really impressed and take your story with them on their own journey.
I wanted to thank you for your contribution to the 2016 Sales & Marketing Conference of Tarkett Australia. Your presentation ‘Planning for Success’ on the basis of your Seven Summit experience, was perceived as very inspiring and helped us to get our message across in an excellent manner. On behalf of the Australian Management Team a BIG thank you for your contribution!
Members and friends of the Netherlands – Polish Chamber of Commerce had the opportunity to listen to an incredibly inspiring presentation by Jaco Ottink during our monthly business drink meeting in Warsaw. What made this talk stand out was that Jaco was able to take the whole audience with him to the mountain and made them undergo the joy and fear that he experienced there himself. A push in the back for our audience to dare to dream! And as well as the riveting talk, the cooperation with Jaco himself in organising this presentation was also excellent. He is a very easy-going person and great to work with. Thank you Jaco for being with us at our business drink and sharing your dreams!
Jaco joined our extended Leadership session, organized to reflect on our Why and How in a context of an ongoing market transformation. He kindly shared with us his powerful story on how purpose and togetherness helped him to reach Mount Everest, the North Pole and other fascinating destinations.
His motivational speech reflected our company values of Joy, Care and Passion for Better and aimed to empower our team members to dream big and accomplish our goals, both individually and as a team. Jaco’s inspiring speech was a strong reminder that no obstacle should remain unchallenged and everyone can prove their passion and determination to accomplish even the most ambitious goals.
I appreciate Jaco’s proactive approach, openness and willingness to accommodate our specific needs in the process, which significantly contributed to the success of our event. I wish Jaco all the best for his next endeavors and together with UPC’s team we keep our fingers crossed for him to achieve his big dream to inspire 1 million people!
Dear Jaco, on behalf of the entire school I would like to say ‘thank you’! The students enjoyed your story and together with the teachers they started to define their own dreams after your session. They will work, support and challenge each other on these dreams during the coming school year. Not only the students, but also many teachers like myself, came back home energised after your “Dare to Dream” presentation. One colleague mentioned to me that she had never met a person who was able to communicate a story in such a powerful way. And I fully agree with her! We wish you all the best with your dream to inspire 1 million people, as well as with your next adventures to the North and South Pole.
Our goal was to create a Belvedere Collective from all the different brand managers and other key brand stakeholders around the globe during a 3 days Belvedere Immersion in Warsaw. The tactics Jaco used to bring the individuals together from the beginning were highly efficient and very engaging for all. Literally in a few hours the base for establishing the Collective was created. The inspiration of Jaco his personal dream has been superb which resulted in highly motivated participants during the team workshop activities. Jaco has a real talent to read the culture of the company and the atmosphere between the participants, which are absolutely key succeeding with the set goals related to the Belvedere Immersion. Besides leaving the group inspired and succeeded to establish the Belvedere Collective, Jaco has made 38 new friends, which showcase how good he is to connect with each individual. Still nowadays when I visit different countries, brand managers participated asks about him and tells how inspired they have been about his dream and capabilities to present and lead a group towards their goals. Obviously I highly recommend Jaco to each profit and non-profit organisation in order to inspire many more people and children. Na zdrowie Jaco!
We invited Jaco to be the keynote speaker for the American School of Warsaw bi-annual high school Career Fair. Our student body, along with quite a few parents and other professionals, were entertained and motivated by Jaco’s recount of his Mt. Everest adventure and his approach and insights into making and striving for personal goals. His talk was relatable for all ages and provided a great start to our day. In addition to his opening presentation, Jaco conducted three “break out” sessions called, “Seven Steps to Your Dreams.” Throughout, students were engaged and appreciated Jaco’s approach to having them think creatively and practically, at the same time, about their future goals and dreams. The overall success of his talk and workshops prompted us to invite him back to speak with parents from our ASW community. Thank you, Jaco!
