Keynote Speaker

You‘re looking for a speaker who knows how to hold an audience’s attention. You‘d like a speaker who works to find the right Keynote for your audience and who enjoy actively engaging your audience with interaction?  You just found him. 
My Keynote contains seven steps to disrupt yourself. Let’s not talk about change; let’s talk about taking action to find the better version of yourself to make the difference. I have a different approach than other Keynote speakers. I am not only going to make you think, together with my energy and interaction, but I will also be the gamechanger for your convention.

The Experience is a content-rich, inspirational and entertaining keynote that is a real eyeopener. I am like an ignition switch for audiences!

Welcome to Disruptionland

Energetic Keynote Speech as an excellent eye-opener for all kinds of business events

Watch the 2 or 4:30 minute SHOWREEL

You‘re looking for a speaker for your event but are fed up with the usual selection on offer and want something a little different to entertain your delegates and also to make them think?

 My highly energetic delivery and practical takeaways inspire audiences. Clean and visual slides reinforce my message. I customize each talk to connect deeply with your audiences and make clients’ events a success. I am a professional member of the PSA Holland (Professional Speaker Association)


The Catapultizer

This is a great tool to have interaction with your audience. The ‘angry bird’ is Catapultized in the room and there is a microphone hidden inside. So, anyone who catches the bird is a part of the plenary discussion.
The answers from the audience will be recorded on a sampler machine. That means that I can use the solutions later on in the closing of the speech. The core values?  A mission statement? If those elements are coming back at the end as a callback, that is a powerful communication tool.

I can also make a Vertical Video Vlog to thank the audience, and the answers given with the Angry Bird will come back to empower the message. 

The  apptool

I am the creator of the Apptool, an amazing tool in your Phone. 

I also disrupting myself. So I asked myself the question: Is it possible to do a Jigsaw out of a smartphone? That would be Disruptive. See for your self. This App is going to change a lot.
