 Hello – Glad you stopped by to check out my site!

What can I say? I am a born speaker coach, teacher and cheerleader.


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/host 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 each year is to be a TEDx Coach. I have helped more than 135 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 testimonials on the TEDx speaker’s page.

Some other proud moments:

  • Exclusive speaker coach for the TEDx Amsterdam Women Startup Award finalists 2015-2019.
  • Exclusive speaker coach for TEDx Binnenhof 2014 and 2016. 
  • European Commission assigned speaker coach for the Ideas from Europe 2016 event with 24 nations present and coached speakers for the 2018 event. 
  • Coached 36 speakers for an IT Summit for Merck, who also bought 800 of my books for all the attendees of the conference
  • Exclusive speaker coach for TEDx Amsterdam Youth and coached 12 young visionaries from age 9 to 19.
  • Coached the CEO of Microsoft Nederland, Managing Director of Deloitte Nederland, Co-Founder of TomTom and the Prime Minister of Aruba, among many others.
