Mark van der Heijden | The digital nomad
“I’m here to tell you how to become the best Thai gardener the world has ever seen…
… Not really, but if you want to go that way – let me know, I can hook you up”
With a slightly depressing story about cycling in the rain, Mark van der Heijden immediately grabs the attention of the Amsterdam audience.
Mark: “I really thought, is this it? Is this going to be it for the rest of my life? No, it wasn’t.” He discovered his vocation as ‘The Backpacker Intern’.
In his talk, he pleads for a ‘digital nomad’ lifestyle, which allows to combine traveling the world and gaining a living. As a digital nomad “your daily routine is different. Every day is an adventure.”
