Interview with Peter van der Wel

Peter van der Wel loves the future and has a passion for making other people love it as well. Peter helps you plan and prepare for the future. Read his interview and learn more about him and his speaking career.

If you could only predict one thing for the future, what would it be?  

As the Arab Proverb says: he who foretell the future lies, even if he tells the truth.  And indeed nobody can predict the future, not even a futurist. But I can help you to be better prepared for that still unknown future.


How are your keynote presentations unique? 

My presentations are a wake-up-call, a call-to-action and an inspirational talk in one. And it’s all presented in a very visual and dynamic way.  


How do audiences gain from your keynote presentations? 

Well my audiences get a glimpse of plausible futures and how to be better prepared to take advantage of the possibilities they offer.


What is the most unique experience you have had as a result of your job? 

That’s a difficult question. During my long career I have had so many exceptional experiences.  People who come and thank me after my presentation for the inspiration I gave them.  Being invited back to organisations years later to come and see their brand new activities based on my presentation.


How did you begin your speaking career? 

I started my speaking career more or less when I became a secondary school teacher. And I still cherish the didactic techniques I learned there to make my presentations tailor-made for the audience in the room.


What kinds of clients have you worked with in the past? 

All kinds of clients. From multinationals to small family-owned businesses, from hospitals to schools, from local governments to national governments and from volunteer organisations to police and fire brigades. I can’t think of any type of organisation I haven’t worked with. Well, I haven’t worked with the UN (at least up until now)
