Jahkini Bisselink joined Whetston strategic foresight in 2020, as a youth expert. Jahkini is a former United Nations Youth Delegate and now continues her work researching trends amongst her own generation, generation Z. She has developed into a memorable speaker, working with clients like Deutsche Telekom and the European Parliament.
Jahkini’s strong suit is that she is able to give an authentic insight in the world of her own generation: Gen Z, whilst clearly understanding how to translate this knowledge into business take-aways.
In her role as a UN Youth Delegate she has spoken with 4000+ young people in the form of consultations and travelled from New York to Geneva to let their voice be heard.
At the age of 18 she gave her first speech during the General Assembly of the United Nations, and over the years she has developed into an inspiring speaker, who can bring a fresh breath of air to the stage.

She was one of six brand ambassadors portrayed in our campaign together with Billie Eilish, and supported the entire campaign across her own social media channels and our corporate channels. Jahkini is an inspiring young woman who has a brilliant mind, a positive attitude and the power to encourage young people to take a stand in life. It’s been a real pleasure working with her. She was highly professional, open for suggestions and contributed high value content to our campaign. We would definitely work with her again and can highly recommend her as a speaker, content creator, influencer and interview partner.”
“Jahkini represented the voice of Generation Z on the event FLAIRS 2020 during a table discussion with C-level executives of different banks on the subjects Diversity and Sustainability within the financial sector.
