More about me

Since 2012 I've been working with great pleasure as a presentation coach and a moderator (discussion leader, chairman of the day... whatever name seems fit).

 

Back in the day? By way of a kid's dream I briefly considered becoming a professional musician. Didn't happen. No regrets. Still making music though. 

 

Among other things I worked in a record store, for the government and for the fishing industry, in which capacity I was a spokesperson on topics such as sustainability, food-safety and quality control. In several of these capacities I learnt how to tell a good story and to find ways how to captivate an audience.

As a presentation coach I like to pass on the fun I have presenting to the people I work with. As soon as you discover that presenting is actually fun, your insecurities disappear! A nice challenge and one that I meet with a lot of pleasure.
