Born in 1985, Ilka Groenewold is an East Frisian whose dancing talent showed up as early as age 3. Her hip-hop, video clip-dancing, and jazz moves meant she became a teacher of the same until 2005. But perhaps what prompted Ilka to pursue a stage career was her appearance on VIVA TV channel's ''McClip Show'' in 2021 as a moderator, a responsibility she performed exceptionally well, given that she was only 16 at the time. She would then attend classes covering castings, piano, vocals, dancing, and many more.

Reasons to Book Ilka Groenewold

  • Ilka’s talent to moderate, present, and speak is inborn. Besides feeling comfortable on the stage, she embodies a unique combination of professionalism, freshness, seriousness, sympathy, charm, and of course, humor. This bodes well for both young and old audiences.
  • She has a unique ability to present successfully in diverse contexts, including trade shows, conferences, live broadcasts, congresses, TV productions, panel discussions, fairs, congresses, awards events, and galas, among others.
  • Ilka is a bilingual presenter with proficiency in English, German, and Frisian dialect. She will switch language depending on the audience.

Ilka studied musical theatre at the University of Hamburg, which makes her one of the most entertaining presenters today. It is no surprise seeing her surprise guests at events with singing performances. She launched a class known as ”American/English and Movement Sciences” at the same institution in 2012. That year also saw her win the DVL’s ”Runner of the Year” award. In 2013, she won the ”Young Entrepreneur Award” thanks to her outstanding activities in coaching and presenting.

Over the years, Ilka has amassed impressive experience, presenting at seminars, conferences, exhibitions, galas, and other events. We must also acknowledge the fact that her presentation is synonymous with big events, most of which allow her to work closely with high-profile executive officers. And when it comes to tackling issues and challenges, she does so with grace, whether in English, Frisian dialect, or German.

Groenewold has featured at numerous events and trade fairs, including IAA, Zukunft Personal, Cloud Expo, IT-Trans, Intermot, Expopharm, Drupa, Control, EU PVSEC, ITB, Hanseschau, Ispo, Intersolar, CeBIT, Nordbau, Norla, Boot, and Hannover Messe. Others include Fruit Logistica, Cemat, Reisen, Interpack, LogiMAT, Automatica, Agritechnica, and IFA.

With expertise, wit and charm, she turned the premiere of the Subscription Leaders Summit into an extraordinary event. She masters the game with the audience perfectly, turns interested spectators into enthusiastic participants with her targeted anecdotes and her likeable, approachable manner.
