Bart van Poll

Together with Sanne, I founded Spotted by Locals in 2008.

I have been very fortunate to be able to live in, and travel to quite a few of places around the world. I have a crush on many of the cities I visited from 2008 until now. But I love Amsterdam & Athens, where I live and wake up most of the time, the most! 🙂

In my opinion, an understanding of other cultures is the key to peace and prosperity. I actively spread the word on congresses, for example at the The Economist Future of Travel summit.

Before Spotted by Locals I was a management consultant at Magnus, and a senior projectmanager / consultant Internet communities at KREM.
