Knowledge Strategist
Island Impact

Picture of Arno BoersmaArno Boersma loves a knowledge challenge, like how to get knowledge flowing to where it can have the most impact. After obtaining his business degree [Erasmus Univ., Rotterdam], he worked for multinational firms [Heineken, L’Oreal] where he learned the marketing ropes. Next he co-founded a knowledge strategy firm [Squarewise] helping organizations tap into their most renewable resource: knowledge. He sold the firm and went on to advise development organizations [e.g. World Bank, UNDP, IFAD] where he focuses on knowledge to do good, mostly notably in sustainable developmement.

Arno has also recently founded Island Impact, a social enterprise focused on bringing positive impact to small islands. Founded on the One Happy Island of Aruba, Arno is applying all he has learned in the corporate, start-up, and non-profit world to work towards One Happy Planet. The firm bridges islands of knowledge, in areas such as Renewable Energy, Sustainable Tourism and Climate Change. For example, he recently co-founded the Plastic-Free Island Network, a community of practitioners fighting plastic pollution. Arno's would be happy to connect on LinkedIn.
