Engaging your audience
Asking the right questions in interviews
Making your stage guests feel like stars
Working with ianka means surrounding yourself with someone who brings out the best in you.
Too often I speak at events where the CEO has a great message that is unfortunately lost in a superficial presentation. Being good in management also means being good in public speaking. You can learn how to manage. You can learn how to be a good speaker..
I have seen what Ianka can do with our Nexxworks Bootcampers in just a few hours. Take your time. Not a few hours. The time you need to find your own voice, your own key, your own attitude, your own format, and story.
I invited Ianka to speak at the first kickoff event of CreativeMornings Ghent, where she gave a talk about our theme 'Muse'. I and everyone in the audience found Ianka's talk very inspiring. She took us unto her compelling journey to find her muse. Being a muse herself she brought a fresh and honest perspective on how people find inspiration. Ianka stands in front of an audience full of confidence and brings in the necessary amount of humor and interaction to keep you engaged throughout the talk. Ianka is pure, passionate and personal!
The key take away is that you can find inspiration in anything, as long as you are capable of asking yourselves provocative questions.
There are people who change the course of your business and your personal life forever. Ianka is one of them. During a great workshop, she unraveled the secrets of presenting and storytelling. With the skill of a master storyteller, she showed us how to enthrall and convince an audience. But she showed us much more. She showed us that there can be a story and a storyteller in each of us. She is the guide to effectively communicating that message.
Ianka was our ‘Master of Ceremony’ during the UBA Trends Day, an event with 1450 marketing and communication professionals. She was brilliant in introducing the speakers and in engaging with the audience. We enjoyed working with her and our attendees showed their appreciation in the event-survey.
We invited Ianka to be the moderator of our Women of the Year Award. She responded very professionally to our request and prepared the event in a serious way, thoroughly reading the material we submitted and asking for further elicitation if needed. The day of the event she got caught in a terrible traffic jam and only arrived at the very last minute. But she jumped directly to the stage and got started. The audience was never aware of the stress she must have felt. Ianka did an excellent job in our marvelous event. Marij Elias, Chair of BE Lioness, the Women's Network of ING Belgium.
Ianka was the event facilitator at the UNIZO Creativity event at the Verbeke foundation. I was one of the speakers. 500+ entrepreneurs enjoyed a great afternoon/evening while Ianka managed the links between the speakers very professionaly. If you look for a great event facilitator, I can very much recommend Ianka.
Chapeau! You were great in your role as moderator. An Absolute Pro!
I recommend Ianka to anyone in need of a storytelling concept. Being a writer herself, an actress and a very good listener, she is capable of creating, recognizing, shaping, producing and performing strong stories. Therefore she uses her brilliant imagination, true empathy and wonderful presenting skills.Furthermore, she is an interesting conversation partner always ready with constructive advise and open to share her knowledge and expertise.
Speaking Mentor Ianka Fleerackers is a must for all business leaders who want to better share their drive and passion.
My compliments to Ianka for moderating a debate on future prospectives of family policy and leave systems (15/11/2016). I myself was one of the debaters. Ianka kept us all on topic and challenged us to think outside the box. This truly improved the debate.
Ianka gave a very inspiring speech at our Failing Forward conference in 2014 - sharing heartfelt experiences and lessons learned to help our audience prevent making the same mistakes and understanding that they are not alone in encountering a bumpy road on their way to success!
