‘Nothing is impossible’
Nick Bruynesteijn, partner at Brownys
Nick produced his first event when he was 13 years old for a party of 300 people. He was immediately hooked. His father Frank – with whom he ran Brownys for years – taught him the tricks of the trade. The excitement of the first event, the goosebumps and the adrenaline kick of a successful party: it resonates with him.
‘I simply can’t get enough.’
He has been producing events professionally since 2003 and up until now has organized events in almost every venue in the Netherlands, big or small: Paradiso, de Westergasfabriek, de Arena, Ahoy and de Kuip. With one exception ‘De Ziggo Dome, I would love to produce a big event there’ he says dreamingly.
Everything is possible
His business partner Frederieke, calls him a ‘phenomenal host’. His work ethic is incomparable; he knows his audience like no other and has an everlasting positive attitude. Even when things go wrong. Nick makes the impossible possible and he will never say no. ‘I believe that if you run just a little bit harder’ Nick muses ‘you get back a lot more. When I know, I’ve tried every single thing I could, I’m satisfied. Everything is always possible.’
Professional vs friendliness
Nick swears by a personal approach. Work is not only work: his professional relationships always maintain a friendly charm. He claims this makes him better in judging the wishes of his clients. He knows what his clients desire, even if they don’t know it yet. We can produce anything and get a hold of anyone.
Prominent at creating atmosphere
Nick is at his best during an event. The ecstasy of a crowd who is thoroughly enjoying themselves or the soft whispers during a small gathering or congress are the reasons he loves his job. He is everywhere and nowhere, quietly in the background and prominently creating atmosphere: always with a big smile.
He radiates when he tells the story of a big Christmas event he produced for TomTom. ‘We put Santa Claus on a real elephant and had him walk into the venue wearing a three-meter big Christmas hat.’ Again: ‘Nothing is impossible’.
Brownys began with Nick’s father, Frank Bruynesteijn. The surname quickly became synonymous with ‘respect and fun’ around the city of Amsterdam and the world of events.More?
Brownys began with Nick’s father, Frank Bruynesteijn. The surname quickly became synonymous with ‘respect and fun’ around the city of Amsterdam and the world of events. His nickname “Browny” logically became the name for the company. Together Nick and Frank ran Brownys. With a lot of passion and success. Frank started in 1999 by investing everything he had into the company. He taught Nick the ropes, teaching him a lot about hospitality and taking care of guests. Sadly, to everyones utter disappointment Frank past away a few years ago, leaving behind a beautiful legacy- Brownys.
Later Frederieke joined Nick in the running of Brownys. Together they have a dynamic energy. They act quick, think on their feet and have a solution for almost everything. Which has led to many great things. The Brownys of today combines the old values that Frank had handed down to Nick like maintaing an impeccable service and professionalism together with those needed to keep up in this ever-changing world such as brand-activation, social media and an unbeatable network.
