About Yolanthe

Yolanthe keeps busy with The Spoken Word, in English mostly but her Dutch is not bad either :-)
She trains, coaches and educates  non-native English speakers to optimize their spoken English in a fun, non-traditional way with lots of games, exercises and insights but also uses traditional Oxford & Cambridge language books.
She works with executives, entrepreneurs, politicians, civil servants, teachers & students striving for excellence, especially when speaking. 

Yolanthe can also help you to prepare for an English job interview, lead meetings in English or improve your English conversation. 

Yolanthe is a bi-lingual speaker. She speaks on a wide variety of topics, for example: 

  • The Spoken Word
  • Ageless LIving
  • Create your Career after Sixty
  • The Power of (your) Sound 
  • Is there hope after menopause? 
  • Opera

She is one of the founders of TEDxTheHague (in 2008) and has organized and hosted the first TEDxTheHagueLIVE 

on July 13th 2011.
