"Sjaak has been a medicines access pioneer for several years. He is one of the few that realise how medical innovation is growing exponentially, at a rate faster than ever before - yet what we currently provide for patients is an embarrassingly, frighteningly small fraction of this. He realises that our system is broken in many ways, and this 'hidden war' must be ended in order to save the millions of lives that are being neglected unnecessarily.
Sjaak has not just a powerful message, but a vital one. Fortunately he is well able to share his story through a strong stage presence. He is an effective communicator whether one-to-one or to a large crowd; I have had the pleasure of hosting him myself in front of more than 1000 healthcare executives at a global summit. I pray that other event organisers may also give him a platform in order that more of us can listen to his impactful vision and insights."
