Irene as motivational speaker

25 year of working in the marketingworld brings many stories to tell. Irene developed a beautiful marketing-jukebox filled with infotainment and inspiration. “I feel it is very valuable to make people laugh, look at themselves, pay it forward with my experience and give concreet tips & tricks. I am used to perform for larger audiences, but also smaller groups. And all walks of life: from CEO’s to 300 farmers to young marketeers from various companies in India.

The lectures always have a lot of practical examples, are very visual and she is not affraid to interact with the audience.

The stories of the marketing-jukebox:

  • About the monkey-mountain and starting life from creativity
  • Nature as big innovator.
  • The beeworld is just like a company, with a SHEO at the top.
  • So You Think You Can Innovate? (let’s do the test)
  • Authentic Inspirational Leadership: yawn, yawn, ofcourse you do, but do you?
  • Transformation to the new era: great, but how?
