Having years of experience in speaking, marketing and training, Bas van den Beld knows how to be a convincing speaker. And most important: he knows how to teach someone else this skill.

As Bas himself says:

“I’m actually a trained teacher! As you can read in my stories, I have studied history. In that time, I was educated to teach as well. I may not be teaching history anymore. I have been teaching on a different topic a lot in the last 15 years: digital marketing. On top of that, I come from a family of teachers, my dad, my mum, my grandma, aunts, uncles and my sister: all teachers. It’s in my DNA!

As a trained teacher, I offer training courses that generate action and results. I’ve performed training sessions for many businesses. These include companies like Comedy Central, KLM, Koozai and Blueglass. I’m also teaching MBA’s at several business schools. I’ve been training on different topics with different types of students. But the main type of students I’ve had in the past few years are marketers. People just like you!”

Bas understands persuading your audience through your talks is something marketers can learn. This made Bas set up a speaking course for marketers. This has now developed into the Speaking with Persuasion agency.

Bas is also the founder of State of Digital. He is a professional speaker and trainer and consultant.

Every day Bas helps companies develop solid marketing strategies based on the innate understanding of the needs behaviours of their customers.
