Jaap Siekman business and life coach

About the presenter, Jaap Siekman MSc, PEng, PMP

Born in The Netherlands, Jaap (pronounced “Yaap”) is an Engineer by education and has worked in a wide variety of industries in Holland and Canada, up to Director level, and eventually went into consulting. As a Manager, he always enjoyed helping others to grow both in their profession and personally.

A Business Coach since 2019, Jaap works with Small-Business Owners in any stage of their business life: from young entrepreneurial start-ups, to established businesses, to baby-boomers preparing to sell & exit their business. He helps these owners with establishing their business, initiating growth, change or improvement, or improving value & sellability. In all cases, specific goal setting is a critical part of the work.

As a Life Coach, Jaap developed the Personal Transformation Canvas© in response to ever-repeating stories of people not knowing where they’re heading, struggling with money or health, and eventually ending up with regrets. Being the engineer, Jaap brings solution-based thinking to these discussions: rather than regurgitating the past, what can we change and do now to make life better?

Jaap is married, has 2 young-adult children. He stays active by going to the gym, running kayaking & bicycling, he plays drums and djembe, dabbles in hobbies like wood carving, pottery and cheese making. He has served as Volunteer Treasurer for community organizations in Surrey, BC, is a Volunteer Advisor with the Canadian Executive Services Organization (CESO) and a Volunteer Mentor with Engineers & Geoscientists of BC (EGBC).
