Two of my greatest passions are Transformation and Empowerment – on the stage and in life!
I am an American executive speaker coach, Senior TEDx coach, published author, professional speaker/trainer and passionate entrepreneur. For over 30 years, I have lived and worked in The Netherlands and had a career as a highly successful sales manager and trainer in the medical publishing industry.
I started Successful Speaker Now in September 2011 to help businesspeople to move from Boring to Brilliant speakers.
One of my proudest experiences over the years has been to be a TEDx Coach. I have helped more than 100 speakers for TEDx Amsterdam, TEDx Amsterdam Women, TEDx Binnenhof and more than 10 other TEDx events over the years. I love being a part of this movement! Check out the TEDx Legacy page
I stepped away from my company for a few months as I was feeling burned out and took a job in a corporate environment for a few months. It didnt work out, but it made me realize how much I missed running my own business that I am an expert in and lifting people up with confidence to tell their stories with confidence. On October 1st, I relaunch the company with renewed enthusiasm and ideas to help people like YOU to become a brilliant speaker!
