Lenneke Hoedemaker

I enjoy listening and connecting and feel very much at home on a stage. I like to guide your meeting in the right direction.

As moderator, chairwoman or presenter, I believe it is important that participants in an event are able to recount with pleasure what they have experienced and learned that day. This means that your message has landed and will be remembered. Then you have organized a successful meeting. I would like to help you with that.

Since 2006 I manage debates and discussions, moderate live interviews, chair conferences, facilitate workshops and 'away days'. Furthermore, I present various discussion formats, such as House of Commons-style debates, tailored to your organization and your specific objectives.

For my work, I leverage experience:

  • as a policy officer in the European Parliament
  • as a communication manager
  • as an actress and singer in theatre
  • as voice-over and voice actress

Everything is customized, everything is possible. Feel free to look around this website and contact me for more information.
