Jochem Baars

Strategy & Innovation Manager, Rabobank

Currently I am working at Rabobank Netherlands as Strategy & Innovation Manager.

Generally I find myself fascinated in almost any area of business. It stimulates my creative and analytical skills to find new and better ways to market any product or service. I learned how to drill down to the essence of business processes in order for me to do this quickly adapt to and understand any type of business. More importantly these skills allow me to find creative ways to communicate any topic, however difficult, in a very short and efficient way. It’s all about the delivery, if you want to entice people for your ideas put some effort in the way you present them.

In addition to my professional career I am involved in extracurricular activities. I am also a
Board Member at INCH (International Network Connecting Hotelschoolgraduates) in The Hague.
