  • I left with a very positive feeling. I learned that with the resources provided and my own will and drive I can make an impact. Thank you very much.

  • I followed coaching at The Floor is Yours for a one-minute pitch. I managed to explain a legal scientific research plan in one minute and to get an expert panel from other research domains completely enthusiastic about it! This would not have been possible without Hans’s fantastic guidance. Therefore a sincere thank you.

  • First session

    We start from the presentation that you will soon be giving. You will present your topic in 3 minutes. We then determine your core message together and work out a structure. You will receive feedback on your body language. This first session lasts 3 hours and takes place on location or online.

  • Follow-up session (optional)

    A week after your first session, you will present your topic again. We fine-tune the content, pay attention to your body language and provide feedback on your slides. Additional follow-up sessions are possible. A follow-up session lasts 2 hours and takes place on location or online.

  • Feedback round (optional)

    You send us your script, along with a video recording of your presentation. We will provide you with our feedback, to allow you to rework the presentation. Two feedback rounds are usually sufficient for an optimal result.

Stijn is a researcher who will present a medical tool he has developed at an important conference in the US. He has already attended one of our workshops but wants feedback to fine-tune his message and optimize his slides. Three hours of coaching turns out to be sufficient.

Robbert is taking an MBA, for which he has to present his personal project to the instructors and fellow participants. He feels insecure and wants help to present his project in a convincing manner. He attends two sessions.
