I have a hard time explaining the excitement level that has been rushing through my body the past days.
Is it 3 espresso’s, is it 11 espresso’s. ☕️
I can guarantee you one thing. You’re happy you didn’t have to deal with my excitement in person. 🙈
The past 2 days were bucket list material to say the least. Being invited to join a forum at the UN Headquarters in New York to discuss the future of SME’s in the world.
Bom diggity. I’m still in awe.

I had the privilege of giving a keynote at Java’s client day in the surroundings of Ghent.
It’s funny how I get the question a lot if I get nervous before I’m on stage. Well, I do feel what you call being nervous, but I decided a while ago to call it adrenaline & excitement.
A few years ago, during a speakers course in Antwerp. (A really good one by the way). The teacher made clear that – by definition – we respect people that get on a stage.
Because somehow automatically, we believe they got on there for a reason, so they must have something to say.
I really love sharing things I learn. Hence the newsletter. 🙂
But also, hence, the keynotes.
In the past years, my comfort zone has been stretched in every possible direction, privately & on a professional level.
I’ve always enjoyed getting on stage and since I changed “nervousness” into “adrenaline & excitement”, the feeling I leave the people in the room with has changed too. And now I apply it to practically everything when I feel nerves coming up.
Life is an adventure you see.
One I’m willing to go on.
What about you?
