Evelien as speaker

Pure, Inspiring & Interactive

Looking for a authentic speaker for a group of entrepreneurs and / or entrepreneurial professionals? An experienced international coach, mentor and sparring partner, whose passion and inspiration ensures a profound connection with the audience? Who goes to the core of what personal leadership is all about?


My name is Evelien van Es and it is my soul mission to inspire and mobilize entrepreneurs and entrepreneurial professionals to convert their burning desire for more satisfaction in their (professional) life, into ACTION. In such a way that they experience the effect of having more impact, acting from their unique ‘being’. I inspire, stir and encourage you to take an honest look in the mirror. I let you see and feel how you can make a difference; to yourself, to the people you love, to your relationships and to your clients. You can find more information on my background here.

Evelien van Es - spreker ondernemerschap en management

“Interactive, playful and refreshing”


Become a business success!

Being successful in business only feels like success if it brings you satisfaction in the (medium) long term. It is as simple as that. Entrepreneurship forces you to take a good look at yourself, with honesty, and at times it is confrontational. There is no escaping it. The world lies at your feet and it is entirely up to you what you do, why, when and how. Within companies too, entrepreneurship and self-management are essential to individuals and teams. Become the director of your own future. With 20 years corporate experience, I know better than anyone what it is like to work in a setting where you can become alienated from yourself. Where you are far from walking your own path.


My story is punctuated with my own “lesson learnt” during my (professional) life. This enhances the impact and leads to self-reflection and action which allows you to make choices for yourself; should I pursue or adjust my course?

If you are looking for a great speaker who empowers a room and is a true inspiration I can totally recommend Evelien.”

“Evelien is a passionate coach and gave an inspiring presentation that encourages reflection and thorough self-digging about what you actually want. The question often occupies us is: ‘Is this all there is?’ It forces you to make choices and be aware and also accept that sometimes you have to let go of things. I recommend people who struggle with choices and/or want to change course to attend a training or speaking engagement with Evelien. You will get to new insights.”
