Jerry Lenaerts our Speaker Liaison officer at TEDx Maastricht

Let’s find out a little bit more about Jerry, shall we?
So Jerry what gets you out of bed in the morning?
I love that every new day gives me the possibility to create something new.

Favourite foreign accent?
Jamaican. You cannot listen to a Jamaican accent and don’t smile/relax . The accent just loves life.

If you could have any superpower what would it be and why?
To go back and forward in time. Probably a slightly modified DeLorean also can do the trick.

Describe yourself in three words
Curious – Life-wizard trainee – Storytelling

What’s your role in the TEDX Team?
Facilitate and coach speakers.

What’s your favourite part of being a TEDx Maastricht team member?
Using my capacities to help spreading ideas. On top of that I get the opportunity to meet lots of interesting people!

What can we wake you up for?
In case there is a fire. Really. Wake me up when that happens.

What drew you towards TEDx Maastricht?
On numerous occasions I was inspired by TED talks and I can give a lot of examples that the talks really have impact on everyday life. Those experiences resulted in a dream to make a contribution to the TED mission.
