Trauma Followed by Recovery
Our meeting will focus around Arjan Erkel and Ferry Zandvliet, both from Rotterdam and who separately suffered amazing traumas. Arjan and Ferry combined forces and are now inspiring people through the power of the internet during this ongoing corona crisis.

About Ferry Zandvliet
My name is Ferry Zandvliet and I am from Rotterdam in The Netherlands. I am an ex physiotherapist and now a fulltime motivation speaker. I travel all over the world to share my story. It is a dream come true.

On Friday the 13th of November 2015 I was with three friends at the Bataclan venue in Paris during the famous terrorist attack where 89 people were killed and over 300 got injured. Me and my friends managed to escape this horror without physical injuries but our lives were never the same.

The horror we’ve seen is hard to describe and this ordeal has left a scar on my soul but I have never been as happy as I am today.

“Why?” you might ask.

| Looking death in the eye made me realize what is important in life: enjoy life to the fullest, anger and fear are wasted emotions and just try to be nice. You will receive what you give!

In my presentation I would like to take you along this life changing journey of mine. You don’t have to survive a terrorist attack to understand the life lesson I’ve learned. And how am I dealing with the corona crisis?
