Our team

New Heroes.com is a new company, an initiative created and founded by Jan Schouten.

New Heroes training courses are available to everyone, no matter where you are in the world. How? We do it all online. Internet is available to pretty much everyone, and scientific research has proven the effectiveness of online behavioral skills training. New Heroes and her community offer even more: hope. This hope provides participants with the feeling that they aren't the only ones who want to work on improving themselves.

For everyone, always and anywhere
New Heroes isn't just for the careers of the "happy few," but simply put, for anyone who wants to develop themselves. Regardless of age, social class, professional field and level, area of interest, and development needs. So it's for professionals, students, the unemployed or pensioners. From Amsterdam to Tokyo, from Rio de Janeiro to Mombasa and back to Dallas.

Affordable, exciting, and innovative
Following the online courses from THE online specialist in the areas of personal empowerment, communication, and management skills should not be any kind of sacrifice. New Heroes is affordable and participants can easily plan around their work and personal life. New Heroes offers its learning journeys in the form of a subscription for both individuals and companies. It's exciting and innovative. On 5 April 2016, we launched newheroes.com. We're here to stay and there's no more excuse not to move forward in life and work!

New Heroes as a network organization
Behind the scenes at New Heroes, you'll find a team of enthusiastic professionals. New Heroes works with a core team and sees itself as a network organization. Together with suppliers, freelancers, and various people who care about New Heroes, a brilliant concept has been created and implemented. Jan Schouten, who has 35 years of experience in management and soft skills, is the founder of New Heroes.
