Presentations are my true calling
quality is never an accident 5 essentials of my approach
my craft & my fire I love what I do. I do what I love.
In the early winter of 2017 I made a decision. That after years of all-round-trainership in communication and leadership topics I would concentrate on what I was most passionate about. From now on my only focus would be on the incredibly fascinating craft of presenting.
‘Meeting skills’, ‘customer service’, ‘writing reports’, ‘dealing with complaints’, ‘leadership’, ‘handling conflicts’, ‘stress prevention’ are just some of the interesting topics I have covered over the years. But along the way I realised I had little time over to nurture my main passion of presenting.
Since then my ship has sailed under one flag and that has given me energy and focus. I’ve come to believe firmly that specialisation benefits clients, it gives them confidence knowing they’re in good hands.
I’m excited about all things presenting and part of that fascination goes back to my education in linguistics and literature. But it’s broader than language and story. It brings together and allows me to indulge in all of my obsessions. Language. Imagery. Psychology. Communication. Rhetorics. Neuroscience. This is what makes my heart sing.
Due to my experience in oral and written communication, leadership and stress management I am at the same time capable of keeping a broad perspective in the field of presentations. I had a managerial role in a large bank for ten years and am familiar with the fundamentals of everyday life on the working floor.
I help everyone having to speak in public get up and running with presentations, in big or small organizations, at home and abroad. I work in Dutch as well as in English. For French I work together with an excellent and driven colleague.
People learn better in an open, safe and friendly atmosphere. That’s why I strive to be positive, encouraging and supportive. What else is typical of my approach? Respect, humour, transparency, exemplary behaviour, equivalency and a solution focus. And last but not least: I take confidentiality seriously.
