How I can help you

I am available for a range of interactive presentations, trainings and workshops, as well as hosting and moderating inspiration and brainstorm sessions, in the field of Blockchain technology and its related key concepts of ‘smart’ contracts, tokenisation and decentralised applications.

This includes, but is not limited to, the mechanics of Blockchain technology, technological differences between existing Blockchains, new value propositions, organisational and industrial-specific impact, ecosystem overview, strategic takeaways and challenges ahead.

My sessions are always interactive, with a comfortable balance between talking, asking and listening to the participants in the audience. I always use simple everyday words and examples. This makes it easy to understand for everyone! I am a native Dutch and English speaker.

I have given dozens of talks, presentations and trainings around the world to several audiences ranging from c-level executives and innovation managers, programmers and coders, to government officials, court judges and policy makers. You can find a selection of my work below!
