Sophisticated and engaging storytelling
through science, art, music and technology.
I develop groundbreaking concepts and sustainable strategies for purpose driven companies.
Keynotes, Lectures and Presentations
Over the years I have developed an outspoken vision of our near-future world. Find out how you, your business, or organization will be impacted during my keynote presentation on the future of sustainability, or my keynote on the future of the events industry in a post-covid world…
Consultation, Strategy and Workshops
Getting from idea to product can be a daunting task. During my workshops I will help you (and your team) get to the essence of an idea, formulate a clear mission and a strong vision. Together we will set realistic milestones, outsource specialized tasks, and develop a clear roadmap to reach your goals. (And yes, it will be fun too!)
and Project Management
In need of an innovative idea, fresh perspective, or a review of your plans? Looking for someone to manage your project? Contact me to find out how I can take your concept to the next level. Also make sure to check out my portfolio to see the type of concepts and projects I have experience with.
Content Creation, and Multichannel Marketing
Nowadays, storytelling is everything. Having a world-changing concept is one thing, getting your target demographic to acknowledge it is a whole different ballgame. I can help you set up a storytelling campaign and create the right kind of content for every channel. Photography, videos, illustrations, copywriting, augmented hyper-bananas, you name it.
How I work and
what to expect.
Every project I take on starts with a consultancy session to identify the starting point, problem or challenge. This is very important to me, because the better I understand your situation, the better (and faster) I can develop something amazing. After your briefing we will define the objectives and paramaters for succes, and we will create a preliminary roadmap.
2. Ideation and research
After the consultancy session, I dig into the subject matter through in-depth research. That means hitting the books, finding the right research papers, a few trips to the library, watching obscure documentaries, and getting lost in the youtube-maze of low quality (but informative) niche videos. During this "divergent thinking" process I usually find an innovative "hook" or an "angle" that most people simply can’t see or tend to overlook.
3. Keynote and workshops
In the next phase I will present my findings to you with a draft keynote presentation. The keynote is followed by a workshop “Concept Development” for you, your team or business unit. During this workshop we will apply “convergent thinking” techniques to decide what angle or hook to work with in the next phase. It is of the utmost importance that you and/or your team really understands the subject matter, because it will form the foundation for the solution of the problem.
4. Development sprint
Now that the ideation phase is over, it’s time to sprint! We will decide on which angle or hook to use, and we will take the best ideas to develop a rough concept draft, a product mockup or strategic story(line) to embody the first concept. This is where the hard work starts to pay off and the solution is starting to present itself.
5. Content creation
After the development sprint, it’s time for the creative part. I will take the results of the development sprint and I will start making or selecting creative content. That means shooting photos and videos, writing copy, animate, illustrate or build prototypes. This can be done by me individually or together with you and/or your team.
6. Concept draft
It’s all starting to come together. By now we should have at leas one great idea, a strategy to approach the idea, an angle/hook to connect it to the bigger picture, a visual or creative representation of the proposed solution, and beautiful creative content to glue it all together in an engaging story.
7. Concept presentation
Story time. I will present my solution and/or concept in a beautiful keynote presentation to you or your team/business unit. I will go through the creative process of ideation, I will explain eloquently how I came upon my conclusions and I will suggest the next steps. This is usually where the smiles appear, and the excitement becomes palpable.
How did you feel about my story? What did it trigger inside of you? Do you feel energized, amazed or mesmerized? If the answer is yes, then I was able to do what I love most. I will apply your feedback, make some final adjustments, and we’re nearly done.
9. Publication and review
I love it when a plan comes together. In this final phase I will publicize my story, my findings and results on selected social media channels in the form of a project summary, a vlog and blog. It will feature you and your team (if you like), crediting all contributions by third parties. Now the story is ready to be told and shared (and maybe even win an award or two).
10. Follow up
The final phase that most people tend to forget. During this phase I will observe and track how the plan/concept/solution works out and I will relay my conclusions to you. There you have it: How I work in 10 steps. Get in touch if you think I'm the right man for the job, you won't regret it.
