As a passionate performer coach I am lucky to work in the stimulating academic setting of Delft University of Technology. Since the first TEDxDelft in 2011, I have been a member of the TEDxDelft team, responsible for performer coaching. With a dedicated team of coaches we will support TEDxDelft performers to prepare a captivating and convincing presentation.
