There are some people who live in a dream world,
and there are some who face reality,
and then there are those who turn one into the other.

My goal is to make event planners happy
That's why I have developed 4 steps for a friction-free collaboration:
I'm here to serve. my main priority is to make your event successful. To do this we have to understand each other, the main objectives of your event, and the specific nature of your audience. Let's sit down and talk.
You should be able to trust a speaker who speaks about trust. I'll do my homework, am prepared, will arrive early and leave late. You can rely on that.
Being flexible is in my view an important part of the personality of a professional speaker. Lets be real, things can change all the time before or during an event.
Preparation is key, for event planners as well as speakers. Here is a list of things to consider:
Do you already have a date set?
How large or small is the audience?
What do you want from me, 20 minutes key-note, 60-90 minute breakout session?
My speeches are in Dutch or English, what do you prefer?
Is it a live- or online event?
In case of an online event, what technology and platforms will you use?
Can I get technical support from your people?
What is the setup of your event? One large space or multiple break-out rooms?
What are the possibilities for interaction?
Do you have other speakers contracted already?
Grip on trust speaking programs
The topic of trust has a lot of different interesting angles. I work from a central theme and adjust every speech towards a specific audience or event-theme. I can't really think of an audience or target group that won't benefit from understanding how trust works.
Possible speaking topics:
Grip on trust for:
leadership & management
large and small teams
Trust fundamentals: theories and science
Do people trust you? An honest look in the mirror
Do you trust people? Discover your trust-baseline
Trust Toolbox: how to create or restore trust in your world?

I consider Jan the Simon Sinek of the Netherlands. I had the pleasure of working with Jan on a coaching project and learned some priceless information and processes on how to build trust. Jan is an expert on trust. Not just why it's important, but how it works and more importantly how to build it! I also learned that Jan is highly passionate about human-to-human communication and how words trigger emotions based on memory and past experiences and understand the connection between words and past experiences is key to influencing the behaviour you want to see in people through your communication. It's fascinating and highly enabling when building a business involving people. Thank you Jan for these priceless insights.
