Conferences can be so much better. We are event professionals who not only host your event, but help you set clear goals, design your event and help you achieve the outcome you want.


Our moderators do this as a profession. We train, reflect and peer-review ourselves. We use state of the art techniques and technologies. 

Conference designers
& strategists

We do not only moderate your event, we help you design the program. You are the expert in your field and know your goals. We are experts in methodology. We help you get more return on your investment. 

EU & Europe

We know how the EU works, what is hot and what is appropriate. We know the cultural habits and the lingo (yet we try to avoid them when possible).

We believe that conferences can be so much better

Faster. More fun. Less beating about the bush. Straight to the core of the matter. And less predictable. So that people leave with more energy than they came with.

We want to bring change to the Brussels Bubble. So that people enjoy events, the precious time of people is used efficiently and you get maximum return on your investment: achievement of the goals that you have set.


You only have effect if people are on the edge of their seats. If something happens in the room. If expectations are exceeded. If it is surprising, engaging and diving into the topic.


We believe that the best way to engage your audience is interaction. Turn spectators in participants. Turn a passive audience in active contributors.


We believe that conferences can have a much higher return on investment. That begins with defining clear goals, set the bar high and then think creatively on how to achieve those goals.

Online seminars, webinars and online talkshows

Since Covid19, many events have gone digital or hybrid. It will take while before things go back to normal. But most likely they never will. We help you to get ready for the new reality.
A good online event is not only trying to be as good as a live event. It uses the advantages of the digital age to engage more people and yield higher results, while still try to connect people like they are in the same room. That requires more than just a good recording of your event. It requires rethinking your event from the bottom up. We help you get the most out of it.


We find the right moderator for your event, who fits to your goals, audience, topic and atmosphere.

We make sure we understand what we talk about. But most importantly, we make sure we understand where you want the conversation to lead to.


We sit with you in an early stage to help you define your goals clearly.

A good event is not a stand alone event. It is part of your promotion or public affairs strategy. It is the beginning, catalyst or grand finale of a longer process. We help you make the most of it.


We do not only help you with the content. We help you design your whole event. The whole look and feel. We provide you  a detailed script.

We can even do the whole organisation of your event. So that you can focus on the content and mingle with your guests.

When we go on stage,
our work is 80% done.


We guide you from idea to evaluation

European Event planning & EU conference organizing/moderating tips and tricks


Eventtip: painfully accurate

Event-tip: add a sidekick to your online or hybrid event.
Add a second moderator, an online-, cyber- or hyper moderator, or 'sidekick' to your interactive online or hybrid event. It greatly improves the conversation and the inclusion of your audience. Here are some tips how to do it right and how to choose the perfect sidekick.

Rogier moderated the Let’s Talk about your Future talkshow very well. This event with minister Kaag (foreign trade & development) was organized by Studium Generale together with Maastricht Working on Europe on the 15th of May 2019. Although the turnout appeared to be quite low, which normally makes it quite challenging to get an audience enthusiastic, Rogier handled the situation with great accuracy. With extra energy Rogier stirred up the audience. This created a great atmosphere with a lot of interaction. The evening ended with interesting discussions.

Rogier moderated an event on drugs smuggling at the Maritime Museum in Rotterdam, in which I participated in as a speaker. With lots of positive energy, authentic interest in both the subject, the guests and the audience, he made the evening very interesting as well as entertaining.

It was pleasure working with Rogier. Both throughout the preparation period and during the performance of the programme, Rogier was very involved and enthusiastic. He was thoroughly prepared. He got people energized, made discussions light heartedly when needed, but always kept the right tone for the occasion. The topic –military interventions- was difficult and sensitive, but he focused the debate perfectly. Rogier is very good at sensing the atmosphere, he reacts fast and appropriate to this. He gave people the room to vent, but never lost control. Above all, it was a perfect evening.
