Maurice Apeldoorn | Vice-Chairman

Hey, I’m Maurice, 22 years old and the vice-chairman of the EBF Conference 2018. I’ve been born and raised in the most “beautiful” city of the Netherlands: Almere located just a 30 minute drive from Amsterdam. Luckily, I’ve moved up north four years ago and have been living in Groningen ever since. In Groningen I continued to play hockey at GCHC and started working as a chef at La Cubanita, where I still combine my hobby with work. This brought me, apart from a filled up agenda, a social network together with a lot of amazing nights. Of course, my life includes some studying as well. I completed my bachelor Business Administration and started the Master International Business and Management in September after 8 months of working in India. Which brings me to one of my favorite activities in the world: travelling. Due to this hobby, I had the pleasure of already visiting 4 continents in the world. And even though I feel privileged, I would love to visit the other continents as well in the future.

To me, the EBF Conference is all about developing yourself, while also organizing an amazing event together with amazing people. Being the ‘Hand of the King’, my responsibilities include thinking out this years’ theme and the acquisition of speakers. Through these responsibilities I would like to enhance my networking skills, become more creative and of course make this ‘lustrum’ edition the best EBF Conference yet!
