Team TEDxEde 2016
Started as a project of students in 2012 developed into a dedicated team of eight volunteers organizing TEDxEde 2014. Since then team TEDxEde has grown with many passionate people in 2015 and 2016. What stayed is a lot of inspiration and drive to exceed boundaries.
With pride we present team TEDxEde 2016
We have a core team and designated sub-teams for the various activities that are needed to organize the TEDxEde event. The volunteers have in common that they are all inspiring, passionate about TEDx, professional and prepared to go the extra mile to create an even better TEDxEde 2016.
Driving force behind TEDxEde after being the license owner of TEDxEde since in 2014. I get a lot of energy from the work for TEDxEde and I love to see people leaving a TEDxEde event with a big smile on their face. I work as Social Media specialist for my own company and have 3 happy kids with my lovely wife.
Our spider in the web giving structure to all the creativity in the team. Gets happy when I can contribute to manage projects, give structure to meetings and get things done. Working as virtual office manager for my own company and helping organizations to get organized.
Visited TEDxEde in 2013 and got infected with the TED virus. Since then with great passion and enthusiasm part of the TEDxEde team wanting to contribute to give TEDxEde visitors the day of their life. Enjoying life as husband and father of 3 and working as Regional Director for an IT vendor.
I find it a priviledge to be part of the TEDxEde Team. As an attendee of TEDxEde I was inspired by the speakers who shared their ideas in such a passionate way. As a team member it is my goal to give a similar experience. In my daily life I live together with my husband and our four children and I work as an independent legal counsel for IT companies.

I love to work with technology and support people to perform at their best. I love to control everything behind the scene and thereby contribute to a great event. I am satisfied when the TEDxEde event has been running smoothly and speakers felt comfortable on stage as all equipment functioned well. I work at a local bank in the region and spend time on my hobby as audio technician.
