Blog

With this blog I mainly want to inspire you. The posts are based on my experience. It can be a coaching I did, a presentation I have done, a TED talk or another youtube movie I have seen from which you can learn. The posts cover the topics that are very important for me like storytelling, how to deal with stress, body language, how to use PowerPoint, pitching and presenting to the board. The posts are in English or Dutch. As I have been blogging for years on this topic you will see that the oldest posts go way back to 2008 when I started writing articles on this topic.

I just found this on youtube and I just love their ideas and the way they get their message across. Overmore I completely agree with their main idea that a presentation is all about the story. This is the first thing you need to do...

The first question is probably "why should I use the notes"? I can think of a number of reasons but the most important one is this: it is by far the best way to keep slides ‘ZEN’ during your talk, only showing messages. Though afterwards...

Toen ik Marcia De Wachter (directeur-schatbewaarder Nationale Bank van België) interviewde vertelde ze mij dat ze elke presentatie schrijft alsof ze zich richt naar 14-jarigen. Het werkt om ervoor te zorgen dat je het verhaal eenvoudig houdt. In hun boek ‘Made to stick’ hebben broers...
