On stage Robert interviewed ministers, subject experts and captains of industry. He even interviewed His Holiness the Dalai Lama. Yet he always involves the audience. Robert’s belief of “an event being as good as its audience”, always makes him find ways to engage with the attendees. To hear their experience. Their perspective.
Rutger Bremer | Director at Momice:
“ I relived the event another 100 times and I really find you've done a great job. The right questions in the right manner, how you took the lead at the right moments. Everyone accepted you very easily and therefore opened up more. Exactly as we've hoped for, but that you did really well.“
Fritha Knudsen | Executive Producer & Creative Director:
“I had the pleasure of working with Robert during Fresh 2014 in Copenhagen. Robert’s keen analysis, facilitation and charming interaction with the panel and audience elicited quick and insightful discussion and results. It was a highly productive session!”
Hans Poortvliet | Board Member at HotelloTOP:
“Thanks for your performance during HotelloTOP; the way you do this is fantastic! And when I say that I mean every word of it! Your way of communicating is clear, humorous, stylish, and is with respect to all of the participants and their input: To-tal-ly perfect!”
Sendsteps is a solution for audience interaction whereby attendees use their smartphone to respond. As such they can vote on polls, but they can also send in open comments, like questions to the speaker. Sendsteps is a PowerPoint add-in, meaning that audience feedback can be presented straight to the audience via the PowerPoint slide!
City of Amsterdam:
For the City of Amsterdam Robert chaired a meeting for 200 police men and municipal enforcement. The cooperation between both groups could further improve. At the start of the meeting, Robert interviewed the Mayor of Amsterdam and the Head of Police. A valuable discussion followed in which Robert fostered an atmosphere where professionals dared to speak up. The outcome helped the City of Amsterdam to further align both teams and to improve their service to society.
KLM Royal Dutch Airlines:
The theme of KLM’s yearly Controllers Day was “Make the Difference”. With a relative calm audience, Robert managed with help of Sendsteps technology, to boast the meeting. Much of the digital input were substantive questions to both guest speakers and speakers from within the organization. With his facilitation skills, Robert was able to let a knowledgeable audience, bring their meeting to a next level!
The CNV, one of Holland’s largest unions, organized a meeting for its “Health and Welfare” chapter. Both daily management and union members discussed the challenge of how to attract a younger crowd. Over the course of the meeting, Robert helped to get a clearer picture on the organization’s unique selling points. With great output and outspoken commitment of their members, CNV was able to further finetune their strategy and decide on clever next steps.
