THE STUDENT Albert de Booy has always studied with the aim to gather a knowledge as wide as possible in doing so. After secondary school (HBS), he travelled through Europe, a bohemian period during which he made a living as a jazz pianist. For a number of years he studied history (Leiden), took piano lessons at the conservatory (Rotterdam) and acquired further qualifications in arranging techniques and composition studies (Berklee). Through the years, he has obtained a number of university certificates in the fields of cultural sciences, music theory, and philosophy. He is married to Argentinean artist Solange Kirschen, Sokia. THE ORGANIZER Halfway through the Seventies, he set up his company De Booy c.s. Party- and Congress Architects®. In the period between 1975 and 1997, this company organized approximately 10.000 events for international corporations and governmental institutions. De Booy c.s. also organized countless concerts in congress- and concerthalls of major cities, presenting international artists such as Sarah Vaughan, Art Blakey, Charlie Mingus, Udo Jürgens, Ivan Rebroff, Rhoda Scott, and many others. De Booy provided entertainment outside Europe as well and directed programmes for, in particular, cruise companies and hotel chains. He is considered an expert in the field of national and international entertainment and has operated from offices in Düsseldorf, Bangkok, Budapest and Rotterdam. Auditions were held all over the world (Moscow, Bangkok, Kuala Lumpur, New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Singapore, Budapest and Rotterdam). THE ADVISER Out of a broad social engagement and generalist background, the need to position a new organization next to the one organizing company events, product presentations and congresses grew. A department that could produce original and refreshing ideas and creative concepts. New insights and points of view presented by top experts. For that reason, Albert de Booy established Speakers Academy® in 1997. This institute mediates for (and in many cases handles the management of) prominent speakers and chairmen of the day in the fields of arts, politics, sciences, culture and sports. Receiving approximately 5000 requests a year, Speakers Academy® is the main supplier of national and international top speakers to managing, enterprising and intermediate Europe at the moment. THE STRATEGIST On the 14th of February 2002, he founded the Political Party Lijst Pim Fortuyn (LPF) together with Fortuyn and coordinated media requests. As campaign leader and spin-doctor, De Booy acquired a lot of experience, with all media types (radio, television, written press) and with the political world. On the 15th of May 2002, LPF obtained the biggest victory in the parliamentary history of the Netherlands. In July 2002, De Booy was asked to take up the office of Minister of State of Culture and Media in the VVD, LPF and CDA cabinet. Due to reasons of ‘conflict of interest’ though, he did not accede with this request. After Fortuyn’s unfortunate death he left the LPF–party and the political arena. THE TOPICS De Booy speaks about Management, Philosophy, Creativity, Marketing, Culture, Music, Strategy, and Leadership. He has developed a vision on the future in which the beaten track is deliberately left and in which concepts considered common property are redefined. Albert de Booy founded in 2008 'The Eagle Paradigm®' Helping organizations, governments and corporations create and sustain a competitive new and strong future.
