Jurriaen Sleijster

President & COO, MCI

It’s about people. Bring them together, have them exchange stories, knowledge, dreams… have them join efforts, working together for a common goal… and great things happen. I love that energy and that buzz. That’s probably why I so enjoy working in the meetings and events industry. People really can make a change and leave a mark. And to be part of that process is deeply rewarding.

At MCI we do just that. For companies and associations. We help them to build their communities, improve organisational performance, grow globally and drive business results.

My daily job as President & COO at MCI means that I am jointly responsible for the management and strategic direction of an international group with a turnover of €500 million, 2’500 talents and offices in 61 cities and 31 countries globally. Day-to-day, I meet with clients, lead operational teams, work with our leadership to ensure the smooth running of our company, and oversee the integration of new MCI offices. And so much more.

My areas of professional interest:
– Management studies & publications, videos, blogs
– Traveling, visiting colleagues, clients and business partners all over the world
– Public speaking, teaching, participating in events

When I’m not working you’ll find me jogging or working out in the gym. And that’s necessary because I also love cooking, good food and excellent wines. These are all things I can combine with my passion for traveling and people, so life is good…
