"For our first fully virtual kick-off meeting, we were looking for a keynote speaker who could help us to support our people to address the challenges of working from home. Because in the COVID-19 era, how can you still remain motivated, productive & interactive when almost everyone works from home and hardly anyone has any real contact either with each other or with customers? We were looking for someone to address this in a science-backed approach, to achieve maximum impact for our audience. There are, unfortunately, too many standard homework tips such as: "do some knee bends every hour ..." It didn’t take long for us to understand that Friederike would be our best choice. Friederike has the power of a small tornado without blowing the audience over. It was precisely her combination of strength, humor and warmth that brought such a positive energy to the - digital - audience. With her flamboyant style, she hit the right note with many people. Her explanation of how our brains work together, the combination of neurology and emotions, and what the possible consequences could be were very enlightening. And the way she uses her iPad to illustrate her ideas was an additional bonus for this important meeting. By sharing practical tools with us about how you can still be productive & interactive in a virtual working world, Friederike helped us to accomplish our mission for this kick-off meeting. This was also evident from the feedback we received which showed that Friederike scored the highest points in terms of speakers. So if you are looking for a guest speaker to give your organization some fresh, science-backed and practical insights into how to deal with productivity and interaction during or after COVID-19, look no further, Friederike is your woman!"
– Arno de Ruyter, Delta
