Energetic, enthousiastic, knowledgeable and an authority on stage. In a nutshell, these are the characteristics my clients use when describing me.
Experience and intuition
As a moderator and presenter, I have lead numerous meetings, events and conferences over the years. I’ve been surrounded by a student audience in an old warehouse, eager to start their hackathon, while a few days later I joined an international conference on innovation in the enormous Amsterdam ArenA.
Every event has its own atmosphere and dynamic. My goal remains the same: I want participants to go home revigorated. And what is great, is that I experience the energizing effect of a good event as well.
I am a tech-savvy expert in communication who found out quite early on that she was able to connect with a large audience. I feel at home on stage, a must for any good moderator.
Combining hands-on experience (and failure) with training by experts, I have developed my own style as a presenter.
The events I moderate often touch upon innovation, digital transformation and technology. Subjects I love and I am very much interested in. It comes in handy as a moderator, when you thoroughly understand the content of keynotes and breakout sessions. The IT and digital domain is often a male dominated area. It is fun to switch things up, being a woman.
I keep my knowledge on par through my experience as a project manager digital transformation. Over the last years, I have lead successful projects for governmental and commercial organisations. Most recently for CJIB, a governmental agency, where in a series of digitization projects I supervised the redesign of the website and their best known (or notorious) product: the traffic fine.
By combining my activities, content, entertainment and interaction comes together beautifully.
