Acts, not ads

A few years ago, I almost died of a kidney rupture and a lung infection – it changed my perspective on life profoundly.  First, I decided to make as many beautiful memories as possible. Second, I decided to take less nonsense. To not accept the horrible relationship between brands and people. I started doing less meetings and more doings. Less powerpoints, more doing stuff. And more than ever, I obsessed about changing companies to be less about ads and more about acts. Impact is about doing. Start doing more.

Want to be less about ads and more about acts?

Hi, my name is Polle. I try to use the super powers I have collected working for global brands over the last 15+ years to change companies for the better: acts, not ads.

Want to keep up with what I’m doing? I keep an irregular newsletter on customer experience, facilitation, and motivation in which I share personal and client cases.

Making remote meetings work

Remote meetings don’t have to be boring, messy, long or ineffective. An experienced facilitator can help to have better meetings and brainstorms. And professional remote keynote presentations can make your remote meetings more inspiring. I’m looking forward to hear your story and see where I can help.

I was lucky enough to be working for a wide range of international clients over the last 15 years. Much of my style is based on this experience, as well as certified training by IDEOHyper Island and Liberating Structures. My style is characterised as open, fun, positive, professional, collaborative.
