In which I tell you everything I know
about a sustainable lifestyle. (The fully revised
and updated fourth edition is out now!)
As a keynote speaker, I often and passionately share my tips and solutions about sustainable fashion & lifestyle, modern living, how we’re being shamed into buying, positive choices and a better world behind our stuff with a wide range of audiences. I’ve spoken at events of for instance Eurostar (in a moving train!), Ace & Tate, the Dutch Embassy in Brussels, Rio Ethical Fashion, Mississippi State University, and at TEDx. I’d love to make you (and your crowd) experts too.
And it’s one of my most favourite things ever. I am a presenter for Dutch TV programme BinnensteBuiten (InsideOut) and regularly host off- and online events, meetings and press conferences. They range in subject from ethical (and tasty!) chocolate, better laws and fair fashion to news about films and series, sustainable communication and responsible banking. I work for companies and organisations such as Netflix, Movies that Matter, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Stichting DOEN, Social Impact Day and NRC Live. Maybe I’ll present your future event as well?
Many advertisements and articles use a form of shame to sell us products. This not only makes us feel bad about ourselves, it also makes it nearly impossible to behave sustainably: in order to be okay, we need to keep buying. Now we’re unhappy, the planet’s unhappy, only for financial gain of the happy few. Enough is enough!
about sustainable fashion, ethical fashion, conscious lifestyle, real communication, modern business strategies, corporate social responsibility and the new economy. How do you set up a future-proof brand, how to be a social entrepreneur, how to communicate spot-on and strong? As consultant and expert, I’ve got your back. Do you have, or are you starting, a (online) store, brand or something completely new?
