Growth Hacking Speaker

For Marketing Conferences and Meetups

A few of the events/companies that hired me as Growth Speaker on tech and marketing

Looking for an inspiring speaker for your next event? Do you want to give your organization a better understanding of growth hacking and data-driven marketing? Then you’ve come to the right place!

20-30 times a year I am hired to speak at conferences, meetups and podcasts. You’ll have a passionate, lively person who shares his stories and ideas, which is much more interesting than just words.

I am one of the first certified growth hackers in Europe and have extensive experience as a speaker at events and 100+ workshops. In addition, I help companies of all sizes as growth hacking consultant. I provide a combination of inspiration, motivation and new knowledge, all at the same time.

Example subjects

  • Growth Mindset
  • Growth Teams
  • Building a Growth Engine
  • Growth Hacking voor corporates
  • Scaling startups from zero to 100
  • How to find the next big Growth Hack?
  • Perfect balance between Automatically versus Authenticity
  • How to develop omnipresence with a small team?
  • Content Marketing ROI
  • Virality in marketing

What you can expect from me

  • My presentations often contain a high tempo, also a high energy level and are action-oriented depending on the subject.
  • I believe in inspire-learn-apply. That is why my presentations always have their own anecdotes (about my own ‘growth hacks’), I explain to you which models are behind them and I immediately provide context on how to apply this in practice. In this way, all your attendees will go home with lasting insights and actionable knowledge.
  • I believe in the power of a personal way of working. If you hire me, it means that I will fully immerse myself in your company, target group and case. This obviously includes clear communication, preparation and completion.

  • I then started as one of the first in Growth Hacking as a freelancer, after I had applied it a lot in my own company.
