Who is Anniek Gavriilakis?
Anniek is director at Bond Zonder Naam and is dedicated to humanitarianism. She is courageously helping to create a society in which everyone is valued. During her keynote, Anniek adopts a surprising and out-of-the-box approach that allows you and your organisation to examine yourself as a person, your role in the organisation and your company's responsibility towards society. All revenue from this keynote will be given to social projects for people who are on the outskirts of our society.
“Stubborn in her humanitarianism.” That is how she is described by artist Koen Vanmechelen. “She makes no concessions when it comes to humanitarianism. The world should not be too quick to judge people. They are more than their crime, their setback or their missing papers. And so she calls for us to take a deeper look, and spend more time listening, before we judge others.”
Anniek's words reflect her life: full of passion. Her quest for balance and beauty has been translated into an emotional, motivated but also sensitive and vulnerable story. She has a refreshing and open view of people who live below the radar of society and doesn’t shy away from any taboos.
