Evert is currently the Head of Training and Development for SVAcademy, an innovative education technology company backed by Bloomberg and senior executives from the largest software companies.
He has over a decade of experience in leading workshops on Mindset, Social and Emotional Learning, and Sales. He has spoken to over 100,000 people throughout the world and has worked with top performing employees from companies such as Google, LinkedIn, Airbnb, Yahoo along with early stage founders.
Typically, tech founders focus on areas such as product development, scaling, marketing, and operations - for good reason. Unfortunately, areas such as leadership development, team communication and company culture get little to no attention. Evert started facilitating workshops in Silicon Valley because he felt corporate trainings, along with personal coaching, lacked a humanistic approach. Being able to identify and regulate your emotions has a direct correlation to company success. Evert’s workshops are highly engaging and have real world application at every step. He minimizes his instruction time to give you more time to practice and implement.
Evert lives in the Peninsula with his amazing wife and has a healthy obsession with anything potato based.
