With your presentation 'Trendz 2030' you awakened the customs organisation. At the end of the day it turned out that your presentation had made the biggest impression. You made sure the issues were put on Strategic Management’s radar.
A dazzling journey through new technology. The enthusiasm and energy during his presentation, combined with the visuals, provided a successful kick- off to our event.
99% was incredibly enthusiastic and 1% very enthusiastic :)! You've caused quite a stir within the group. Well done!
An impressive and noteworthy presentation for our employees and customers. The rate at which change is happening - which you eloquently brought across in your energetic speech - requires a disruptive approach. To be continued!
Enthusiastic speaker, a good and versatile story. Everyone was ‘wowed’ by the lecture.
Great keynote that really opened our eyes. Sparkling and energetic, from beginning to end. Thanks Richard, for showing us this different view of the fitness market and its future.
Richard has inspired us and given us food for thought through his ‘own way’ of presenting - characterised by humour and interaction. It gives people energy, stimulates creativity and encourages thinking in opportunities.
A spectacular kick-off to our ‘Away Day’. With many examples, he shows which changes are necessary to keep up with the technological developments. The presentation sparked many discussions throughout the day and inspired ideas for follow-up actions.
Afterwards everyone was enthusiastic. Not only because of the way you illustrated the generic trends but also because of the way you applied them to the agricultural and livestock industry - the market in which De Heus operates.
Richard knows how to interpret the new developments in an inspiring manner, while simultaneously outlining their impact. Our visitors were challenged and inspired. Richard, thanks for an exciting and 'wondrous-ful’ presentation!
A great story, interactive, supported by many facts and anecdotes. He has convinced us.
Richard is very interesting and a true visionary. He brings the future so close that you can almost feel it. We found it interesting to see where technology will lead and how it will change our company and our business models.

Richard's enthusiasm and inspiration were contagious. We’re still talking about it. He gave us food for thought; it was great to be able to share in his passion. He brought the future closer!
Such an energetic and enthusiastic speaker! From the first few minutes, the audience hung on his every word when he spoke about ‘the future of healthcare.’ Especially the way he personally deals with these developments got people talking. It was a perfect start of our annual staff conference.
