"It is with great pride and honor that I acknowledge the expertise of Angélique Koopmans as a presenter.
I was recently in Amsterdam and the group of training professionals that I worked with needed some expertise on how to 'look' the part of a Professional Trainer. The local franchisee knew of Ms. Koopmans and invited her to speak with our group. She was nothing less than spectacular! Her relaxed demeanor and poise in front of our group made it easy to connect with her and the subject matter.
Even more importantly, she responded to challenging questions that not only answered the inquiries but she did so by responding to the entire group. This professional act alone set her apart from many of the trainers that I have been associated with for the past 25 years.
Another fact regarding Angelique was her professional attire that commanded respect. Many people 'talk' about looking the part, Angéelique does in fact, look the part of a polished, smooth, and successful professional speaker.
Any organization that wishes to impress their associates with a powerful message would be well advised to hire Angéelique Koopmans as their speaker."
