Speaker of the Year 2018: Jeroen Dijsselbloem
- 17 Dec 2018
Former president of the Eurogroup, Minister of Finance and now also Speaker of the Year 2018: Jeroen Dijsselbloem was chosen by our relations as winner of the prestigious Cicero award. Looking back at yet another great year with our speakers, we also give special remarks to the fastest growing speaker: without any notable experience as a speaker, Chris Baldwin is the rising star of the year - which says all the more about his story and performance as a speaker.
Politics made populair
Being a politician and economist in 2018 is a challenge: international affairs are more complex than ever. Nevertheless, Jeroen Dijsselbloem managed to impress audience after audience with his keynotes on the EU and Brexit. Our clients praised Dijsselbloem for his flexible and informal way of conveying his story.
"A man with his own vision, who shares this vision in an open and no-nonsense way. A refreshing message in a time where too many speakers only seem to repeat each other's clichés."
The title of best speaker is awarded based on quality rather than quantity. Number of performances or booking doesn’t count - instead, we rely on client feedback. The message and authenticity of a speaker is what sets the great apart from the good. They spark a flame in the audience - even after he or she has stepped off stage. The coveted bronze statue of the Roman Marcus Tullius Cicero was previously awarded to Jan Terlouw and Ruud Koornstra.
Not only our clients and their audience appreciated Jeroen Dijsselbloem as a speaker. The collaboration with the team at Assemblee has proven to be very successful as well. With Britt as his assistant, Jeroen Dijsselbloem made the stage at many (international) events.
Fastest growing speaker: Chris Baldwin
With no real experience as a speaker, he resigned from his employer earlier this year and joined forces with Assemblee Speakers. A strong move - Chris made it to giving his first TEDx talk last November, boosting his exposure with over 5000 views in the following days. But his success goes far beyond the internet: Chris and his story made it to international stages in Stockholm, Vienna and Frankfurt, amongst others. In his keynotes he focuses on the importance of connection and choices, helping people and businesses build more valuable connections in a digital world.
