Christopher worked really hard to try to make Oxford Entrepreneurs up to a good standard. He really wanted to give off the perception that OxE was a highly organised society and had a definite startup mentality about it. It was a shame that he could not continue because of internal politics, I really think OxE could have gone far with him at the helm.
I had the pleasure of working with Christopher during our times at Oxford Entrepreneurs.
I was Vice President of the society when Christopher took over the role of TATA Idea Idol Director and I directly recommended him for the role. My faith in him was repaid through his fantastic dedication and incredible passion for the role, culminating in a superb event.
Christopher is a true entrepreneur and an easy colleague to work with. His passion to succeed will take him far and I personally hope to be able to work with him on something in the future.
I can wholeheartedly recommend Christopher to any potential employers or business partners.
I contacted Christopher to do an interview about youth entrepreneurship in the UK due to his work at Oxford Entrepreneurs. Christopher sent me responses to my questions quickly and in-depth which is very helpful for a writer. The answers to my questions (http://magnatemag.com/2012/07/christopher-pruijsen-former-president-of-oxford-entrepreneurs-on-young-entrepreneurs-in-the-uk/) were in-depth and showed that Christopher had a lot of expert knowledge about the topic.
It was excellent to work with Christopher and I hope I can again soon!
When I first met Chris at the TATA Idea Idol 2012 in Oxford, I was very impressed with the scale and success of the event. It was truly inspirational to meet someone as driven and talented as him.It was great to also gain support for our last event - Nottingham Entrepreneurs Finale 2012 when Christophers committee members attended our event. It is easy to see that he will make a great president for Oxford entrepreneurs. I foresee only success for him in his career.
Chris was President at Oxford Entrepreneurs and led the organization to great heights organizing the Tata Idea Idol and several other entrepreneurial programs.
He is a very effective leader and go-getter, and works well with people. He is someone I would love to work with anyday.
As Director of the Idea Idol event Christopher gave me the responsibility to assist one of the judges - Leo Johnson - and both Leo and I found the event very well organised and extremely inspiring and enjoyable. Christopher is for many in Oxford Entrepreneurs both a leader and a friend and I would highly recommend him for any organisation
Christopher was a fantastic leader of the 2012 TATA Idea Idol Contest. He was professional and extremely organized throughout both the weeks leading up to the event as well as during the night of the Contest. The smooth delivery of this successful event that drew >200 people to the Said Business School is thanks to his leadership and attention to detail.
Christopher is very professional when it comes to organizing events as well as guest speakers. At the TATA Idea Idol competition, he delivered his speech very effectively and kept the competition running very smoothly. I have no doubt that he himself will become a great entrepreneur someday.
Christopher is quite a character. He is incredibly approachable and charismatic, but this does not detract from his remarkable entrepreneurial streak. As President of Oxford Entrepreneurs-and the youngest to do so since it's formation, Chris oozes of the determination and passion for entrepreneurship needed to champion the largest entrepreneur society in the world. I am expecting amazing things to come from OE as they grow under the commendable leadership of Christopher and am also looking forward to his upcoming crowdfunding based company. One to keep a close eye on.
Chris provides detailed creative guidelines and input on the design of the Oxford Entrepreneurs website in a highly driven and productive manner. He's always very responsive and precise with his advice.
As a finalist of the Tata Idea Idol 2012 and the winner of the Oxford Entrepreneurs Henmans prize, I had the opportunity and pleasure of meeting Christopher over a period of several weeks. I have been impressed by his professionalism, organisational skills and sheer bussiness talent. But most importantly he has a genuine passion and entreprenural drive that I only have detected in people that can affect change and disrupt their industry.
