Who is Jacques Vermeire?
Jacques’ career is one of highs and lows. As a young man, he was rejected by all the academies; years later, he won a 1-billion contract as a TV personality. Jacques possesses everything required of the allround top entertainer in today’s world: 100% name recognition, multiple awards, an engaging appearance on stage and talent for humour, entirely original and timeless.
People often see him as a practical joker who is approaching retirement age but, 30 years after this belated breakthrough, it appears that he is also an inspirational entrepreneur. The ‘Flandrien’ of laughter who shows himself to be an unwavering man of his word. A guru for a new generation of stand-up comedians and an entertainer with an authentic story. A king of personas, who appears to be a man of vision; a businessman with a real presence. Share the experience and knowledge of Jacques Vermeire, and have a great time too.
Jacques is someone who can present a meaningful story in a funny and light-hearted manner. He inspires and amuses at the same time, which keeps your attention focused on his presentation. Far from yet another boring theoretical lecture, this was an enjoyable hour packed with valuable content.
Jacques Vermeire was guest speaker at an event by PMV/Z, where he spoke about entrepreneurship. He offered tips and tricks to the audience of bankers and businessmen, and threw in many anecdotes and personal experiences. He shared his stories in a convincing and enthralling manner. It was a performance without his characteristic funny faces, but was in typical ‘Vermeire style’. It was Jacques Vermeire as not many people have seen him.
Despite concerns and a degree of scepticism in advance, Jacques Vermeire was able to convince friend and foe with his honest and sincere presentation, which was greatly appreciated by all.
